  be kind.

Hello CLE. Isn’t this sunshine divine? It truly just makes me so happy. Also, side note…just looked at Monday’s weather and for Opening Day…50, overcast but NO RAIN! Get psyched!

Okay, today I wanted to share a little video that was developed by our friends at the Cleveland Clinic. It was initially an internal piece for employees and such, but I think it speaks VOLUME to how we as humans and as citizens of the CLE should behave. It’s a bit over 4 minutes in length and has “subtitles” so you have to actually read the video, but it is moving and I hope you like it.

If you do, pass it along to your friends who might also need a bit of a reminder that we are all individuals with different things going on…and we all live here on this earth together.

Great job Clinic marketing and communications team, it truly is a wonderful piece!

  1-tank trip : Columbus

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a Saturday, 1-tank trip to Columbus. The skies were bright blue and while 71S was swarming with police cars we managed to make it there in just over two hours with no stops.

We arrived to a quiet Columbus starting our morning with breakfast at North Star Cafe on High Street. Not only was the breakfast yummy, the unlimited magazines and people watching was even better. After breakfast we headed to the new Rothko exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art. It was awesome, a three room intensive on the life of the artist and how his works once more figurative morphed into intense color studies. Also along with the Rothko exhibit there is this fascinating exhibit of Czech puppets on display in the other galleries, almost as cool as Rothko, but also sorta creepy. You have to check it out!

  Day 3 : Inner Bliss Yoga

Hello & Namaste Cleveland.
Another fun day of giveaways here at iheartcleveland!

During the holidays is it hard to make time for “you?” Does your workout, your alone time, meditation and spiritual needs, do they all fall to the side in place of holiday hustle and bustle?

Have you ever tried Yoga? A state of wonderful deep stretching and strength training paired with meditative deep cleansing breathe partnered with a state of peace and well being?

I’ve been practicing for almost ten years and still a beginner I can’t stress enough how yoga brings me joy, keeps me grounded, makes me stronger, brings me peace and stretches every muscle in my body. Sounds good right?

For Day 3 in the 12 Days of Giveaways, Rocky River studio, Inner Bliss Yoga is offering 5 class passes ($60 value) to one VERY lucky reader. This offer is the perfect opportunity to try yoga, to come back to yoga (“return to your breathe”) or perfect your crow, eagle or tree pose.

At Inner Bliss they offer many types of classes, from child and very beginner to powerflow and hot experiences. Their kind welcoming teachers create an environment of acceptance,  vibe of joy and lots of fun. Their studio (located on the second floor at 19537 Lake Road) invites light and warmth into your daily practice. During these chilly Ohio days stepping into the IB studio warms not only your body, but your soul. Check it out!

“Like” Inner Bliss on Facebook and tell us about your thoughts or experience with yoga. (What do you like? Why are you hesitant? What holds you back? What drives you for more?) and enter to win today!

Please include your email, winner will be drawn on Tuesday December 13th. I can’t wait to read your comments on this one.

p.s. my favorite pose? Happy baby for sure! :)
