Timberland was a major sponsor for this year’s event, hosting hikes, meditation sessions and recycling efforts and more.

Do I like yoga? Yes. Do I like being outdoors hiking? Yes. Am I always up for trying new food if claims to be organic or vegan or healthy even if it’s not really? Obviously. Do I like listening to live music? Of course. All these things are being rolled up into one and I [...]

In January, I decided that I wanted to do an experiment doing yoga.  Would daily yoga be enough exercise to maintain (or lose) weight by creating a greater sense of self awareness and allow me to tune in to my actual hunger levels?
