My junior year in university I enrolled in a course with Erin Manning. That course might have been the most informative class I took during my 4.5 years in the IMCA program and opened my brain to the possibility of actually combining my interests in the body (movement) with my interests in philosophy and new […]

As a dance and yoga person, I have become somewhat of a connoisieur of movement photographers. It’s not an easy thing to capture the essence, fluidity and prose of the body in motion. I posted earlier about Dan Schmidt in Boulder, who does wonderful work with yoga asana. I’m happy to have found another photographer […]

improv-everywhere

Ok. This post isn’t about food or yoga… per se. But it could be! In case you don’t already know about the flash mob phenomenon, there are all sorts of “happenings” that are springing up everywhere. Mostly they are funny/ arty/ surreal, sometimes they are political, and sometimes they are for marketing. But here’s what […]

In the spirit of springtime, new beginnings, out with the old in with the new… I thought I would post a bit about yogic philosophy. The great sage and author of the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali outlined an eight-fold path to quiet the mind and achieve Yoga (union). The eight limbs begin with Yama and Niyama […]

Oh Gosh. This may be my new favorite internet distraction. Thanks to Catherine for posting this gem so I could find out about it! Food Party is everything I ever wanted from my Fine Arts degree (ahem) and…  “a mind-bending, non-reality cooking show with Thu Tran as your hostess, a cast of unruly puppets as culinary […]

handsup

I have had the good fortune of knowing Melissa Michaels since I was just a youngin’! She was (and continues to be) one of my most influential mentors. I have seen her organization Golden Bridge grow into an international force that brings together youth (and elder) leaders from all corners of the globe building community, fostering […]

Much more accessible than a lot of the meat-media out there, The Meatrix is informative, entertaining and kid friendly. Another reminder to be aware of what we’re eating and where it comes from… […]

I couldn’t go far with this blog without an enormous big up and THANKYOU!! to Heidi Swanson: Chef, Photographer, Blogger, Designer and huge personal hero. Her website 101cookbooks is one of the best cooking (and best looking) sites online (in my opinion) and it was my original inspiration for a blog and her photographs and […]

Dan Schmidt is a good friend, fellow seeker on the path of yoga, a niche photographer who uses an old school large format camera (think the blanket over the head thing) to take gorgeous photos of many things (and a lot of yoga asanas), and… oh yeah… a leading physicist in light ray research (or […]

Kittiwat Unarrom is the son of a baker and an art student inspired by anatomy books and forensic museums, he uses dough, raisins, cashews and chocolate to create works that are totally edible… and also vegetarian!! Via shape + colour   […]

Chef, Hacker, Anarchist, Mark Powell presented foodhacking at Dorkbot this year with his liquid nitrogen ice-cream making presentation. Combine open-source programming, molecular gastronomy and anarchist ethics and there’s certainly some food for thought. “Chefs are a lot like hardware hackers. Both geek out, absorbing the specs of (vegetables|technology) for the purpose of creating something that […]
