One of my biggest fears growing up was dogs. I love dogs now, but when I was knee high to a grasshopper, I would stay away from dogs like the plague.  My fear stemmed from a horrible experience at age 3. While petting a dog, I end up getting bit several times.  My fear kept me from enjoying the connection with these loyal animals. Finally, my parents helped me overcome my fear by getting me my own puppy. Now our family has enjoyed bonding with dogs and my fear is gone.

What Is ELDOA? The ELDOA method is an innovative form of exercise developed by world-renowned osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer. ELDOA exercises consist of a series of specific postures aimed at relieving pressure and increasing blood flow around particular joints or spinal segments. This technique is a highly effective way to reduce pain, increase circulation, and improve posture, balance, and spine health. We offer ELDOA classes at our dojang on Sunday (2pm) and Wednesday (11am).  Contact Cyndi Jolly for pricing and availability at 850-712-3799. There will be no ELDOA class on Sunday, March 17 & Wednesday, March 20.

 Isn’t modern technology amazing? Sometimes it feels like we’re in a science fiction movie. Think about it. We can talk and see someone from across the globe with our phone. Crazy, right? With being so connected, we are often disconnected from those in front of us. Go out to eat this week and look around you. Who is actually having a conversation? My encouragement for whoever reads this post is to make more effort to be connected with their family this week.
