About Brian Levine

I’ve had the good fortune of being surrounded by amazing people since the day I was born. My family and friends are my life.

I hope* to be a patient, loving person who asks a lot of questions. I hope to be open and to continue to learn everyday.

My goals are to keep life simple and stay present within the precious moments we have in this life.

One love always.

About Paz Romano

Most of my life was focused on being a good friend and being the best teammate I could be. From the moment I woke up until the moment I went to bed, most of my decisions were framed by the simple question: “Will this make me a better football player?”

When my football career was over, the next couple years were filled with welcomed uncertainty and learning.

Along the way, with guidance from friends, mentors, yoga, family, and God, I know that I’m here to create.

I want to create and share goodness and love with the world and this blog is a small piece of that.

I’m passionate about entrepreneurship, yoga, helping others, and learning.

About Danners

Yoga and meditation became part of my life 2 years ago.  Little did I know, at that point I would embark on a new journey of natural health and well+being.  My Ashtanga practise and mindfulness meditation inspire me as an artist, musician, gardener, traveler, and life long learner.

I am eternally grateful for my loving family and friends.  My creativity stems in part from my 94 year old grandmother who was a professional ceramicist for over 50 years.  Ceramics, photography, and card+making are currently in the forefront of my artistic pursuits.

I am passionate about sharing my insights of my daily practice including posts on yoga, art, health, alternative DIY beauty solutions, gardening, and fun vegan recipes.  In March 2014 follow me as I embark on a 100 day Southeast Asian journey!

About Kate Reder

I’m a small town girl from Michigan. I love DIY projects, doing jigsaw puzzles with my sister, watching Harry Potter movies, and having a cocktail with my girlfriends. My passions are mountain biking (to the library or on the rail trail near my parents house only), jogging, laying on beaches, and singing country songs.

After spending the first twenty-some years of my life sans-passport, I’ve traveled to six countries in the past year and am looking forward to growing that number. I’m having a lot of fun blogging my experiences and am mostly enjoying interacting with our readers. Follow us as we explore South America!
