Celebrating Martin Luther King’s Birthday

Last week, I had the honor of being invited by my dear friend Cherylyn Harley Le Bon to CORE’s  Ambassadorial Reception and Awards Dinner on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday.

It also marked the twenty-fifth observance of the Federal legal holiday honoring Dr. King. The act set aside the third Monday of January as a time for Americans to reflect on the principles of racial equality and nonviolent social change espoused by Dr. King.

His famous speech in which Dr. King uttered the immortal words, “I have a dream” can be heard here. Take the time to listen.  It’s less than 18 minutes long and helped shape a nation. Why?

How to Extend Lifespan & “Healthspan”

Here’s one of several anti-aging tips I’ll be sharing as I launch my new Anti-Aging Program.

“As lifespan continues to extend in the developed world we face the challenge of increasing our ‘healthspan’, that is the years of our lives when we can expect to be healthy and free from serious or chronic illness,” says Prof Douglas Kell, Chief Executive of Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

imagesThough scientists have known for some time that a restricted diet can lead to a longer lifespan and reduced incidence of age-related diseases, new research gives new insight into why this can occur even if the restricted diet is adopted later in life.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
