New For 2015… Yoga with Carmen!

As you all know, I’ve got fibro and I’ve got it bad. So, I decided that I need Yoga in my life.  And I decided I want all my students to have it too! So… We’ve got a brand new class at Love 2 Dance! Beginner ‪Yoga‬ with Carmen is every Friday at 6:30 PM for only $5!

BUT, in order to make sure we can pay our lovely Carmen, we need at least 3 people pre-registered to come to class each week. So bring a friend and share this with everyone you think needs Yoga in their lives! You can register at http://love2dancefit.com/schedule/. It’s quick, easy AND we accept debit and credit!

Whether you have never taken a yoga class before or you enjoy the relaxed pace of a beginner class, our Yoga fundamental class is for you! Focus is on the back, neck, and shoulders, as well as standing and sitting postures. Using breathing and warm ups with simple yoga stretches, you will learn to relax the muscles of your body and improve your overall health and well being.
Carmen will works on a variety of poses depending on our weekly needs. Variations are given based on our needs and ability so don’t worry about being able to keep up. Each class ends with a quiet relaxation.

Bring a mat and see you on Friday!

What Essential Oils Can Help Ease My Fibromyalgia?

So, I’m on a mission.  As you may or may not know, I am going to school for massage therapy.  It has been a very challenging journey so far, and I still have 4 more months to go.  On the positive side, I have 5 months done, so I am more than halfway there!

But anyway, we have just started learning about aromatherapy, and I am in love!  I am officially a fan of essential oils, and I am on a mission to learn everything I can about how to use these oils to naturally make people feel better.

Today I ran across this article and I hope you like it as much as I did:

Fibromyalgia is a terrible condition that more and more people are suffering from. It is hard to find good information because while it has been around a long time, the condition has only recently been  named and studied so not as much is written about it in aromatherapy. Also, what is probably worse, they still don’t know what causes fibromyalgia. It could be hormonal disturbances and chemical imbalances that affect nerve signaling. Other experts believe that with its deep muscle pain, it is linked to stress, illness, or trauma. Still others think it’s hereditary. There have been some studies that link fibromyalgia to sudden trauma to the brain and spinal cord. Keep in mind, though, theories about what causes it are just that. Theories. Further study is needed. –

Yummy Honey as Medicine – Prevent Infection, Kill Bacteria, Promote Healing

Just another reason for me to love honey. I’m determined to try making those cough drops! If anyone tries it, please leave a comment and tell me how they turned out.

“Did you know you can use honey as medicine?  If I had to choose only one medicine I could have in stock, I think it would be honey. These days, specialty wound-care centers might agree.
Honey has become a staple for those hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic leg ulcers, burns, even wounds with gangrene. It kills bacteria resistant to other antibiotics and actually heals tissue, nursing the skin back to health. Not only that, but it can decrease the pain.
But here’s the catch. Some types of honey work better than others. Before we get into that, let’s go over the basics, like …”

Find Fibro Pain Relief With Massage

So, as you know, I am going to school to become a Massage Therapist. One of the reasons that I made this decision to go to school full time for nine months along with running a business (all the while forfeiting any hopes of a normal sleep schedule) is because I believe in the power of massage on those of us battling chronic pain.

I found this article that talks about how beneficial it is for us to get regular massage.

I’ve realized how true this really is. Give your ALL or else you are selling yourself and your spouse short.
