Yoga for youthfulness

Acclaimed Yogi Peter Sterios unlocks the keys to longevity

Rugby. Women. The Ego. These are not the reasons for studying yoga that you’d expect to hear from Peter Sterios, a world-renowned yoga master who has taught yoga at the White House and who founded the massively successful yoga mat company, Manduka. But nothing about Sterios and his yoga style is as expected.

The Wellness Kitchen and Resource Center

Unlike most aspiring chefs set on making their mark in the restaurant industry, founder of The Wellness Kitchen Nancy Walker took a different culinary path. At Bauman College in Santa Cruz, Nancy laid the foundation for utilizing natural and holistic cooking methods as a means of treatment and healing. Since her graduation in August 2009, Nancy has developed a successful career by making sustainable healthy eat habits available to her patients.

The CrossFit Games

The search for the Fittest on the Planet

The purpose of any workout is to “increase your fitness”, yet only one workout program has actually defined “fitness”.  In CrossFit, fitness is “increased work capacity over broad times and modal domains”.  This sounds complicated but its actually very simple.  It basically means that you have the ability to do any task, for a variety of different times and at different weights.  Not that you are the best at the tasks, but that you are physically prepared to do anything, whether its life, career, or sport related.

Take aim and let fly: Archery on the Central Coast

 
There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.

Get in on the Pickleball craze

Fun, social and active sport takes SLO County by storm

Pickleball was once called “the fastest growing sport in the country you’ve never heard of.”  Not anymore. This very fun, very social, very ‘active’ game has grown exponentially since it was first introduced in 1965.

Developed by Washington State representative and eventual Lt. Governor, Joel Pritchard, the name of the sport originated, according to urban legend, in honor of Pritchard’s dog, Pickles, who would chase any errant balls and return them...most of the time.
