FUN

FUN With the hardships and challenges of life, we can often times lose our way in the area of fun. When was the last time you laughed or played? Yes, we adults need to have fun too.

As a child, I enjoyed skateboarding. Since Christmas, I’ve been having fun working on improving my skateboard skills. This week, get out there and discover or rediscover what is fun  [ Read More ]

It’s funny that when you are a kid, you can’t wait to grow up and get on your own. As an adult, you would do anything to go back to be together again. Life goes on and we create our own families.Some families are together while others are split. No matter the current condition it is still a family. My encouragement for all of us this week is to be the best possible parent, husband, wife, son, daughter, etc. Strive to be be more patient, kind and loving in our household. Let’s face it, we can’t go back. All we  [ Read More ]

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. Do you have a fear that’s stopping you from  [ Read More ]

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.
