Acropolis, City of Athens in View
I had a wonderful experience teaching Pilates in Greece! The students in Athens were extraordinary. They were attentive, eager to learn and passionate about Pilates. I love my job. Our cruise was a perfect way to unwind after a week of work. Todd and I visited spectacular locations in only 4 short days, finishing in Santorini which was unforgettable. Truly an experience that I will treasure forever.

BOKU® Super Food was born out of necessity. When founders and Santa Barbara residents, Lynn and Reno Rolle´ learned that their son was diagnosed with a focus problem in 1994, they rejected the automatic prescription for mind-altering pharmaceuticals and began searching for natural, less harmful alternatives. They consulted a naturopathic physician who experienced recent success using super green algaes, spirulina, and other potent, live foods. Skeptical at first, the results quickly ignited their passion for using food as medicine.
Boku delivers the most potent, high quality nutrient dense superfoods on the planet. Made from whole foods, every Boku product is certified Vegan, Kosher, and Organic.
Boku contains no filler, no chemicals, no preservatives and no "cheap" ingredients like apple fiber or soy lecithin. Boku Super Food is all about extremely high-density nutrition. The result is a product that delivers literally thousands of healing phytonutrients (plant-based medicines) that can help prevent serious disease and restore normal, disease-free biological function.
How soon will you feel the difference? I think it depends on what else you're eating, and if you are exercising regularly. If the rest of your diet is fairly clean, you will begin to notice significant improvements in physical and mental performance within a couple of weeks. Your regular Pilates routine will help your body circulate all this great nutrition so that it reaches every cell in your body. Remember: It's not what you eat that counts, it's what you absorb and circulate that counts. Exercise helps your body distribute the nutrition so that it reaches your brain, eyes, skin and other tissues, bathing them in a nutrient-rich solution that greatly enhances cellular health. Healthy cells lead to a healthy body, and healing happens from the inside out.
Here’s my favorite Boku Smoothie:
A frozen banana, a couple ice cubes, a squeeze of honey, and a scoop of Boku Superfood,-cover with almond milk or coconut water, - whir in the blender. Yum
