It’s Hot Outside! Are You Making Yourself Hot Inside? - Fit Fem Trainer, Emma Harris

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian healing art that incorporates the heating and cooling qualities of food.

Spring is here! And although that means allergy season is on its way, I’ll take it. Even in the dead of winter, I stay active with my indoor workouts and trips to the gym. My kids, however, are not so enterprising. Just a day or two of being cooped up in the house, and they are driving each other (and me) completely insane. But, I can now take a deep breath and relax.
