This happens to be national Yoga Month, so Yoga Festivals are going on in cities across the country. Check out the website for more info. On Sept. 7th the festival will kick off in NYC, unlimited classes all day for $39 or one for $25. Bootcamp for Goddesses and Hip-Hop Asana jump out at me as looking pretty great.

If you want a little zen in your life but your find downward dog more stressful than soothing, check out these ideas for creating a calming cube.

Yummy “Healthy” Food of the week: Whole Wheat Edamamme Steamed Dumplings at Rickshaw. These replaced the no-so-good tofu dumplings. They are really yummy and super filling. You get a choice of soup or salad with six dumplings. I recommend subbing the peanut sate salad for the lemon sansho salad. Fun fitness ideas to try:

Outdoor Adventures-Hiking totally renewed my love of hiking. I actually like it more than I remember liking it in Girl Scouting. Maybe that’s because I no longer expend all my energy singing GS songs at the top of my lungs and running from bears that are THIS BIG!

I thought no one hiked in the city--we just aren't outdoorsy folk :(, but I did some serious asking and googling and found out there are a lot of groups that plan outdoor adventures, hiking, back packing, camping, white water rafting, climbing, etc.

Here are a few organization that plan group out-of-doors activities. They all have branches in other cities too.

Outdoor Bound

Meet Market Adventures

Urban Escapes

That’s it for this edition!


Just FYI, I will be away until September 3rd. While I am on Cape Cod, I will have wireless in my hotel, so I will do my best to get my butt off the beach and keep blogging. When I am on Island (Martha’s Vineyard) at the beginning of next week, I won’t be able to blog. I like to completely unplug from all technology when I am in my little island retreat.

Just in case something crazy happens and I can’t blog at all, have a GREAT Labor Day weekend!
