Embodiment defined: an approach to experiencing yoga, whether asana, pranayam, or philosophy, from the instructional lens of all the body systems; skeletal and muscular, but also the endocrine system, the organs, the nervous system, the skin, the fluid system, and especially the cellular system. Subtle body systems are more available for us to engage with embodiment as a practice lens. This holistic scope informs consciousness on many levels. Yoga is a contemplative meditation; embodiment is a meta-gateway to understanding, feeling, and experiencing more of the yoga practice.
Gift Certificates available for yoga classes, workshops, and so much more.

Make Sure This Holiday Season is a Safe and Festive Celebration
Many of us will be decorating our homes for the holidays, and State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers wants to offer Ohioans some tips that can help keep families throughout the state safe during this time of the year.
“Used properly, these can be important family traditions. Make sure the decorations you put up in your home are fire safe and properly hooked up,” says State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers. “While Christmas tree fires are not common, when they occur, they often become deadly.”
Marshal Flowers and the U.S. Fire Administration offer the following tips:
Purchase lights that bear the label of a nationally recognized testing laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and use the lights according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Outdoor lights are specifically labeled for outdoor use. Outdoor lights should be fastened securely and placed on a ground fault interrupter circuit.
Do not connect too many light sets together and never use extension cords that are worn or cracked. Do not run them under rugs or over sharp objects.
Turn off lights when you go to bed or leave the house.
Live Christmas trees should be as fresh as possible. Make a fresh cut at the base of the trunk, and place the tree in a sturdy stand; water it daily. When the tree becomes dry, discard it promptly.
One in five holiday fires occur because a heat source is too close to the tree. Locate the tree as far away from heat sources as possible. Never place lighted candles on or near the tree, or where the tree may fall if knocked over by a pet or child.
Do not block your primary or alternative escape routes with a tree, decorations or presents.
Remember: Ohioans are encouraged to have a working smoke alarm installed on every level of the home and in each bedroom or sleeping area. Also, practice your escape plans twice a year. Each member of the household should know two ways out of your home. Make sure guests are aware of the escape plan and the location of any fire extinguishers in case there is an emergency.
It's about to be Thanksgiving, and I know you're in a hurry (me, too)! That's why today's post is about getting big results in almost no time.
Before you start chopping cranberries and making stuffing, give yourself three minutes to read about three ways to build your daughter's self-esteem in 90 seconds or less. You'll be able to add these to your repertoire instantly and use them to make this weekend even more special.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday,
Fran Hendrick, PCC
A mom — almost by definition — is a woman in a time crunch : ).
So if you’re thinking that with all the logistics you’re managing, there’s no time for an add-on strategy about building your daughter’s self-esteem, don’t worry. You can make a difference in the way your daughter sees herself with a few well-placed words, spoken from the heart.
Far from being one more task that there is no hope of completing, enhancing your children’s self-esteem can happen continuously just from your style of interacting with them. In other words, putting a little twist on the conversations you’re already having can build your children’s confidence in themselves.
Here are three powerful ways you can do it — in as little as 90 seconds: Read on...

It was a steady stream of students who braved the cold morning temps, walking from the Loveland Intermediate School (LIS) and Loveland Middle School (LMS) campus down Lebanon Road to Loveland’s LIFE Food Pantry to participate in the Pass-it-On Food Drive Friday, Nov. 21. According to Pass-it-On organizers, the Tiger Family – including LMS, LIS, Loveland Elementary School, Loveland Primary School and Loveland Early Childhood Center – collected a total of 4,258 food items – exceeding the request for 3,700.
“Loveland Schools has partnered with the LIFE Food Pantry for 14 years collecting over 32,400 food items through the Pass-it-On Food Drive,” said Karen Burke, LIFE Food Pantry drive organizer. “This year 198 Loveland families in need will receive two holiday food baskets! This would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of the staff, students and parents of the Loveland City School District.”
The holiday season is here, and State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers wants to remind Ohioans of some safety tips that can help during this time of the year. Many of us will be cooking for family and guests, and Thanksgiving Day can increase the likelihood of such a fire.
“Cooking is the leading cause of all fires in Ohio and the United States. The biggest problem is unattended fires,” said Flowers. “Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking. If no one is watching, things can get out of control fast.
Flowers offers the following tips:
Have a safety zone: keep children and pets three feet away from the stove and oven.
Never hold a child or pet while cooking.
Avoid wearing loose clothing or dangling sleeves while cooking.
Keep potholders, oven mitts, towels and anything flammable away from your stovetop.
Clean food and grease from burners and the stove top. It can catch on fire.
If you must use a turkey fryer, keep it outside, away from buildings and other structures, such as garages, carports and decks. Never leave the turkey fryer unattended. The turkey should be thawed prior to frying. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Keep an ABC multi-purpose dry chemical fire extinguisher nearby. Never use water on a grease fire. Water and grease are a dangerous combination. Water can cause hot grease to splatter.
If you are cooking and a fire starts, turn off the heat source, put a lid on it, and get out of your home!
In addition, Flowers encourages Ohioans to have a working smoke alarm installed on every level of the home and in each bedroom or sleeping area. Each member of the household should know two ways out of your home and practice those fire escape plans twice a year. Guests should be aware of the escape plan and the location of any fire extinguishers in case there is an emergency.
A new playground at the Loveland Primary School might have accessible play structures like this where all children will be able to get to the center of the fun.

A child's play is essential to education
It is a BIG task... for the smaller ones
by David Miller
LPS Principal Kevin Fancher talked about the community benefits of an accessible playground at his school.
The playground at the Loveland Primary School (LPS) is broken, antiquated, and beyond repair. So bad and un-engaging, that teachers say most children break into isolated cliques during recess, where the "play" often deteriorates into undesirable behavior. They say that bullying, conflicts, aggressive and exclusionary behavior cannot be monitored. Recess has become unmanageable for the teachers. They find the current recess situation is often an unhealthy, boring, exercise period, not the physical activity children need.
Listening to the teachers express their dreams about a new playground, always triggers the discussion of their over-riding motivation; a need to have a new playground that is accessible, engaging, social, and fun – for their children with disabilities.
Recess may often be the only time during the day that students with physical disabilities can interact with the entire student body. School counselor Lauren Joyce says, "It's important that we provide the type of playground that is going to facilitate play that is creative, interactive, and cooperative, so they can practice the social skills they are developing."
Allison Wnoroski, the school physiologist says that children may already feel different because of their disability, and when these students cannot access the same play area as other students, it reinforces their differences. "We are not helping them if we don't have an environment that they can access. It just continues to send that message that you're different, you're separate, you can't play with the other kids. I'ts not good for their self esteem or their social development."
According to Wnoroski, unstructured play opportunities, recess, and physical activity, allow children to engage in an activity that significantly improves a child's conginitive and academic achievement. Four per-cent of LPS children cannot access the recess area, or play in the same area as the other children. The playground at LPS is a physical barrier to the full range of education opportunities for these children.
Sooooo.... the LPS staff has teamed with the Loveland Athletic Boosters to create an "all-inclusive playground that supports social, emotional, and physical growth through engaging and active play" for each and every one of their students. A place in Loveland where all children and their families in the community can play together, regardless of their abilities. A watering hole for children and families of all abilities, especially children with sensory deficits and other developmental issues, allowing each child to choose how they want to engage in the playground. Getting all children into the very center of all the structured activities is an esential design criteria of their inclusive play dream.
The only piece of accessible play equipment at the Loveland Primary School is at a very hard to get to spot. It is remote and isolated from where other children play. It is not inclusive because a child using this lone swing cannot engage with other children during recces.
The team sponsored a luncheon on November 12 to kick-off a fund raising drive
LPS Principal Kevin Fancher said, “We want a playground that is inclusive to all children that has a variety of play events to engage children; we want the playground to increase our student's physical activity level.” Fancher is also excited about having a playground at his school the entire Loveland community can enjoy.
LPS teacher Jamie Meyer said, "This playground project isn't just to benefit the kids that attend the Loveland Primary School, it's really to benefit all kids in our entire community."
The goal is to raise $200,000 to make it happen.
If you want more information on how you can help; contact LPS Principal Kevin Fancher via email at email@example.com or 683-3101.
Jamie Meyer said, "I am so proud to be a Loveland teacher, a Loveland resident, and a parent of three kids that attend Loveland Schools. I really can't wait to share this playground with the entire Tiger Family."
A Web Site where you can offer help or donate to the Loveland Primary Playground Project will launch soon.

It is a BIG task.
The Loveland Primary School (LPS) staff has teamed with the Tiger community to create an all-inclusive playground that supports social, emotional, and physical growth through engaging and active play.
“The playground foundation needs to be fixed to correct erosion and drainage problems,” said LPS Principal Kevin Fancher. “We want a playground that is inclusive to all children that has a variety of play events to engage children; we want the playground to increase our student's physical activity level.”
The goal is to raise $200,000 to make it happen.
