South Florida: Dr. Nick’s Magic Needles

“I’m afraid of needles, except acupuncture needles.” – Catherine O’Hara I hate needles. When I was a kid, I needed stitches.

I Met A Guru

I recently went on a yoga retreat at Amrit Yoga Institute for $139. This included my accommodations, meals, yoga, Yoga Nidra, lectures with a guru, and more. Friday 7:00 a.m.: My alarm went off. I hit the snooze button. My radio never came on again, and I drifted off until 8:15 a.m. I’m not a morning person. […]
