We all know yoga is good for us. We know we should stretch more, drop some stress and maybe stop feeling all jacked up. So why don't we do it more often? I mean it's very definition is:

Yoga: a system of exercises for mental and physical health     We need that pretty much every day! But there's no way most of us can fit in a yoga class more than twice a week. Here's a few of the 10 reasons I came up

1. Don't have enough time   It's hard to fit in a 60-90 minute class time. Then there's the time to get there as well as shower/ clean up time after. Could take up to 2-2.5 hours just to get in that yoga class. 2. Stinky and sweaty after  Yoga is typically in a warm to hot studio. Do you have time to fit in a class, go home shower and get on with your day like that? Many studios don't have showers (or just one shower)  Often I can't make a class simply because I can't figure out how to get my own stink off after. 3. Can't make the class times   Yeah there's a lot of times, but none of them work for you. 4. Don't know where to start  Yoga can look a super daunting to many of us. My lifter friends feel exactly this way. The thought of holding a position and not moving can make many Type A gym goers super anxious.

So what if we took away ALL the excuses?

What if you could do yoga anywhere, anytime for  just 5 minutes. No hassling with traffic, class times, showers, no chanting or expensive accessories, totally familiar movements where you can fart as much as you like and no one will judge you. Oh, you also can do it all for less than $10/month. Doesn't that sound way more doable? That is exactly why you MUST know about Jasyoga.  Jasyoga is online bite size (5-30 minutes) "practical yoga that helps you solve imbalances" stated by creator and owner, Erin Taylor. You may not be concerned about "imbalances" in your body. But you totally should. This is when you are tight, jacked up, achy, tired or god forbid.. injured. This all can wreck you big time, making you suck at daily life on every possible level. Erin knows just how gnarly imbalances can be and how crucial it is to keep the body in balance. As an injured college basketball player she knew she had to fix her body but needed something that was totally doable and practical for everyday busy life. This is how Jasyoga came to be. For the past ten years she's has been bringing Jasyoga to the masses; from College football teams, NBA players, Olympic Track Stars to the mom next door. After moving across the world and having a baby, she realizes just how important it is that anyone be able to quickly "hit reset" and find balance everyday. You've got to check out her amazing resources that you can grab hold of right now, from anywhere. That's exactly why she's on this Burn Brighter episode, so you can hear:
  • How she fits in yoga daily on super jam packed days as a full time mom (2 yr old), author & business owner on the go!
  • How she went from injured collegiate basketball player who hated yoga to the THE go to coach for athletes.
  • Why she's the non yogi's favorite yoga teacher
  • How her 2 books (Hit Reset and Work In) give you even more resources to feel better everyday and stay in your game
  • Why recovery is literally the #1 thing that will make you perform better (get faster, stronger & be more focused)
  • Why her simple approach and tactics have gotten her working with NBA players, Olympians & the neighbor lady.

Nib Mor is the chocolate brand that lets you "indulge mindfully" . This company knows how to stay healthy and happy, that's exactly how they began.   In fact the founder herself created this sweet solution after looking for ways to get more healthy and happy in her own life life.Ya gotta hear this story of how Heather K. Terry went from Broadway actress to health focused chocolatier! She for sure gets life changes + a need for healthy chocolate:) She even wrote a book about her journey; From Broadway to Wall Street, Cautionary Tales of an Unlikely Entrepreneur.        Nib Mor makes it totally possible for us busy, health seekers to indulge and enjoy while staying lean, strong and happy!

Okay, so we know we gotta eat healthy. But it's hard on the go- right? When you're navigating your busy day it's much easier to grab something from a coffee shop or quickie mart. It's done and ready to go, no waiting.  I totally get that! While those fill our hangry bodies, we pay the price later.  That gassy belly, bloat, the crash that gets you nodding off at your keyboard and of course our overall health. There's simply nothing good in most quick grab foods. You work hard for your body and deserve great stuff! Stuff that keeps you doing more, so you can be better. Ya' know what does that? High quality vegetables, proteins and healthy fats. That's why I got super excited when I found Evergreens. Evergreens is a super quick salad bar chain located in Seattle.

"I mean, I am BUSY!" I heard this from at least 20 different clients last week. And they are right! They are authors, professors, public speakers, parents, community leaders... basically great people doing kick ass stuff daily. Of course all that ass kicking work, means sometimes they forget about themselves. That's why I yelled "YESS!" at my iPhone (startling the couple next to me at my favorite coffee shop) Buried in Instagram, I had just found the answer to my clients' (and my own) biggest daily struggle. How to get healthy foods in their busy bodies, without slowing them down. It's called mēle. It's pronounced MEAL and basically it's a super healthy meal on the go. It's so on the go, you don't need to sit down, use utensils or even chew. It's a meal replacement shake chock full of all the great stuff humans need to stay healthy, especially High Performing, Uber Busy Humans! As a Nutrition Specialist, Health Coach and Personal Trainer I'd love it if we could all sit down to a beautiful salmon and veg scramble after our morning workout OR take a leisurely lunch at the park with an awesome salad brimming with beets, arugula, spinach, avocado and turkey. But let's get real! That's sooo not gonna happen. You've got stuff to do, lots of it!  Work, deadlines, errands, sprint to school pick up, walk the dog, pay the bills, get that thing fixed on your car, return those emails, make that flight, show up for tonight's event, find clean underwear and socks for tomorrow, buy laundry detergent- screw that just buy new socks and underwear... you don't have time to do laundry! So how the heck do you get those healthy meals in you, without totally falling behind in your day. That's the exact problem this busy New York Couple struggled with AND found a jaw dropping solution; mēle THE portable meal with all the healthy stuff you need without packing in the scary stuff that screws up your health. Say hello to Lauren and Adam Benbassat. Two people who know what it's like to maybe grab breakfast at your coffee stop, skip lunch (to meet that deadline ,  fit in a workout (if you're lucky) then totally crash and burn with hangry cravings at the end of the day. They set out to solve this. After hundreds of kitchen experiments and some pretty crazy combinations they found the answer. Try not to shout "YESS!" at your smart phone as you hear all about their brilliant creation, mēle

I can't wait for you to hear

  • Why you can totally trust their healthy ingredients
  • How mēle fills you up and boosts mental focus
  • How you get primo quality protein,veg & healthy fats (hello antioxidants & Omega 3's) in less than a minute
  • Why you can say sayonara to coffee shop pastries and "meh" lunches that waste time and energy.
  • How to take this anywhere with you. Travel, gym bag, conferences. No refrigeration required.
  • How Adam and Lauren use their powers for good. High Five to giving back to hungry people in need.
  • How you can get way more done, stay healthy and look fabulous:)
So, if you're juggling more fires than Kerry Washington (Scandal)  talking fast and making people walk with you just to get in a conversation. Stop the madness! Let's face it no one looks that good while living off wine and popcorn. Just plug in your headphones, hit play and get the goods.

Okay!  So of course I love salad's. It's what healthy people eat, right?! We need those bowls of nutrient packed veg to keep us lean, healthy and strong. But they can get boring. Maaaan I hear that! So how the heck do we keep salad's exciting AND make sure we're getting what we really need? As busy people we gotta
  1. Hold ourselves over for at least 4 hours
  2. Get in those super powerful nutrients to stay on top of our game
  3. Feel good.. no gas or wanting to take a nap after
  4. Feed our hungry muscles
  5. Actually enjoy it - so we keep eating them and enjoy our salad moments.

This way you peel yourself from your computer, take a stroll, get some chores done or learn something great while you sit in traffic:) So go ahead and treat your ears to how to make the best salad.  OH!  Stay tuned...

Have you ever wanted to somehow give more?  But either the thought gets pushed to the side, or you end up waiting till some massive disaster happens? I totally used to do that. I'd think of volunteering at shelter during the holidays or think of donating to kids in need, but something always distracted me and once again I waited till some tragic event unfolded to help others in need. I really think we all want to serve more we just don't know how to immediately do so in a super easy way. Now we can! And get this you can actually give back when you buy great stuff you love Imagine buying a quality bag and knowing that some of your money is going to build a school for kids in an impoverished community. I mean we all love those FEED bags and TOM's - they look great and we know we've done something really good. How cool is that?! This episode fills you in on some super awesome up and coming companies that have amazing products I know you will love and feel good whenever you use them.

If you like being your greatest version of yourself, you gotta do this:) Also get a heads up to your next guest on Burn Brighter Podcast - it's pretty exciting!!  Took me months to get him   This  is all about PURPOSEFULLY changing things up. Turns out learning new stuff and getting out of our comfort holes not only improves our mood- but boosts brain health AND keeps you lean. Sometimes we dont' notice it, but we get totally stuck with our same 'ol stuff. This can be great, those daily comforts and predictable living.  I totally get that!  I must admit, I love my Sunday evenings at home flipping through magazines and watching a chic flick. But I also know how great I feel when I make myself get out of my comfy sunday sweats and meet up with a friend, or read a super informative book. I don't know about you, but I find as an adult.. this can be super hard!   To dump the comfort and do something different.   For the last couple months I've been forcing myself to meet 2 new people a week. It's funny really, I get nervous and almost back out repeatedly- but I've been swallowing my pride and stepping up to stranger's saying "Hey! I'm Breanne. I'm kinda new to town and would love to hang out sometime if you'd like" This totally surprises people, I am meeting some pretty cool people and I kicked my winter funk. In fact just yesterday as it poured outside, I sat with a woman from Sunday's yoga class at a great new juice bar and then headed to a matinee :) Now check out the episode above... it's super easy- just click on the PLAY button :)   Save Save

Oh man, how I love my morning coffee.  It's a ritual that brings me comfort as I step into my day. Is it actually doing my body good?  Turns out coffee can totally boost OR wreck your health. It all depends on how you take it Once I learned this it helped me keep this friend in my life. What a relief! Coffee's been like a trusted friend It's gotten me through road trips, late night study sessions and helped me make some of my best friends. I feel like my generation was groomed to love coffee (late 90's high school grads) I mean, who doesn't remember the show Friends and watching the gang at their home base, Central Perk   I must admit I never missed an episode of with Ross, Monica, Rachel, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey gripping giant mugs on that worn out couch. Basically coffee is a ritual, a trustworthy friend I can count on... OR Can I?! (Enter ominous music here) It's a common question and often misunderstood topis- Coffee. It is good or bad for us?   That's exactly why I created this podcast episode.  Listen up and learn how to keep your next cup from turning on you! Check it out!

We all could use a little boost, right?   Something to help us feel excited about life. Since it's hard to simply "be positive"  and " feel great" I love plugging into great people in the world that get me there.  I'm a huge fan of inspirational podcasts and books, heck even TV shows that keep my head up. Lately I've been enjoying Friday Night Lights. It's been around for awhile, but If you haven't seen it- I highly recommend you do some Netflix Binging on that one:) The head football coach even has a great mantra for the team "Clear eyes, full hearts"  How great is that!! Anyhow, I know we all need some fresh ideas on keeping our inner Eeyore at bay, so I thought I'd share how I stay Inspired daily, as well as some great resources for you! This is a great preview to my next guest.  I'm so excited to bring her to you!  You will fo'sure find her story inspirational and she'll definitely kick Eeyore to the curb for you. On iTunes as well!   CLICK HERE to check out past great episodes
