The skin is our largest organ, and our visceral connection to the outside world. Strung along like pearls knotted on a string, the lymphatic system is an intricate net of lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels. This system resides just beneath the surface of the skin and is in charge of eliminating cellular waste, storing and distributing fat/fat-soluble vitamins, and absorbing fluid to minimize swelling. This magical system directly affects cellulite, bloating, circulation, skin, respiratory health, aging, and immunity.
In both our old studio and our new space, we’ve been blessed to be within walking distance to Two Hands NYC (first the restaurant, now the cafe). Owned by two handsome Australians Henry & Giles (what? It’s an important detail), there’s a lot to love about the fresh and vibrant fare they serve. But perhaps most lovable of all is the Banana Bread with Espresso Mascarpone.
Heather Lilleston is one half of Yoga for Bad People, but don’t be fooled by the name, Heather is a very good person. Radiant, kind, and creative, she has a refreshingly authentic approach to life and wellness. She’s expertly trained in yoga, which she has been teaching since 2003. And while the California native is back on the west coast after a 15 year stint in NYC, she spends a pretty hefty chunk of time traveling the world hosting yoga retreats, which sounds like a dream I’ve had before. Through all the travel and the ebbs and flows of life, Heather maintains a super real, super grounded approach to wellness, and she’s sharing it with us today.
