The Busy Bees

The Busy Bees
I dislike very much being so busy that I cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. I dislike even more feeling "unbusy" or without purpose. One of the wonderful things about spring, is that it gives us re-purpose to the tasks we have trudged through during the dark winter months. Suddenly, the days are longer and the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter.  At BBW we are excited for spring too. Not only do we have new fashions for you to revitalize with but we have them at a great price. New styles of shoes are coming in (I promise Aris Allen is still coming!) and old styles are being improved upon. We are adding new faces to our staff, opening up to new ideas and working on new ways to serve you better.  Sometimes busy is a drag. Sometimes busy works against you. Sometimes you just have to believe it will all pay off.  Happy Spring and see you soon!

Yoga IS for everyone. A short guest series. First contributor Amy Deva.

Yoga IS for everyone. A short guest series. First contributor Amy Deva.
Let me start by saying I've heard it all.  "I'm not flexible enough for yoga." Yeah, and I'm too dirty to take a shower.  "Yoga is boring." You probably found a boring teacher or style that wasn't right for you. "Yoga is for chicks." Actually until around 100 years ago, yoga was (mostly) restricted to only men. "I don't need yoga, I stretch at home." Yeah, I don't need a dentist, I brush my teeth on Tuesdays. "My sister blew out her shoulder doing yoga." Injury happens, and more importantly, so does healing.  "I don't have time for yoga." If you have time for TV, you have time for yoga. "Is yoga a religion?" Yoga teaches about what it means to be human, which some religions also do.  "Am I going to need tight pants?" Only if you want them. Tight pants help when you are moving quickly and don't want to tangle up your feet.  The good news is there is a kind of yoga for every single person on this planet.  The popular kind of yoga right now is a fast paced, high energy, athletic yoga. Luckily that is not the only kind of yoga. There is yoga that...

Yoga IS for everyone. A short guest series, Part 2.

Yoga IS for everyone. A short guest series, Part 2.
  Yoga, as simple as taking a breath. If I could have one wish it would be that everyone would practice yoga. Yes, everyone. When I mention yoga to people I often hear “I’ve always wanted to try it, but I’m not flexible” or something along those lines. The average person perceives yoga as being twisted up like a pretzel, or maybe even as a woo woo spiritual practice. That’s a misconception and those thoughts can put up road blocks to a wealth of healthy living. As far as bending into a pretzel goes, I practice yoga with veterans, inmates, people who are struggling with emotional as well as physical challenges beyond the average, people who don’t want to enter a yoga studio as a starting place. I’m deeply inspired by people challenged with paralysis, or with an ankle fused by a bullet, or anyone who has to take great effort to arrive on their mat. I think that if they can find a way to practice yoga, everyone can. It’s not about flexibility or having the perfect body.  it’s a matter of finding a teacher who will start with the basic postures and technique while incorporating breath and storytelling to...
