While I was in New York City in December for the Pilates Style Magazine photo shoot, I passed by this adorable shop I just had to check out called MastihaShop. I was so excited to meet the owner, Artemis Kohas. We chatted a while and she told me about the amazing Chios Mastiha…. “Mastiha is the natural and rare tree resin of the pistachio lentiscus var Chia tree. Scientific research has shown that this resin has anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory qualities. It has been documented from antiquity for its health benefits, its use as the first natural chewing gum and as a cooking spice. Today, it is still chewed as well as used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and in the culinary world. Chios Mastiha contributes to a healthy gastrointestinal system and has beneficial effects for both oral hygiene and skin care.” So cool! I love this.
MastihaShop highlights and promotes the Mediterranean lifestyle of health, well-being and natural products stemming back centuries. Read more of their story and incredible vision for the shop here.

I don’t know if I’m the only one like this, but I often play out the scenario of being the first responder on the scene of an accident. What would I do? Would I freak out? How fast and efficient would I respond? Working in fitness centers has absolutely conditioned me to pay attention to people and their safety and being a mom has made me be on the verge of paranoid in making sure my kids are safe. I’m thankful for accessible and quality First Aid/CPR training as a pedestrian, as a fitness instructor/personal trainer and as a parent.
In Middle Tennessee, we have a fantastic CPR and First Aid training provider
“to provide high quality, ‘hands on’ training so you will be prepared to react effectively in the case you are faced with an emergency.”

“If Joseph Pilates were alive today, he would applaud the innovation we have brought to his original exercises. As he created the original movements as a response to the needs of a population almost a century ago, we at the Institute have developed a coherent, no nonsense program for addressing the needs of the 21st century client.” TheMethod Pilates
