As a Pilates instructor, I’m always looking for ways to marry the practice with the great outdoors. Nature is a great setting for this calming and introspective exercise.

Last week I got the opportunity to do it!

I was thrilled to be able to conduct a mat class on Vienna’s Town Green. And on a truly beautiful summer evening.

We had a great turnout, and the participants loved it so, I’m definitely incorporating outdoor Pilates into my class schedule. 

If you’re in the DC area, my next outdoor Pilates class will be Saturday, July 15 at 9 a.m. (location TBD). Follow my Facebook page for the latest updates and information: Align Pilates.

Outside of DC? Consider finding an outdoor class in your area!

NOVA (Northern Virginia, that is.) was hit with a major thunderstorm last night.

So, of course, our power went out.

Typically an annoyance (especially when it’s out for four hours!), we looked at it another way: Using it as an opportunity to have "power" family time. (Pun intended.)

So what did we do while waiting for the lights, TV and fridge to come back on? More importantly, what can you do? Here’s a quick list of ideas.   

  • We played tag candlelight.

  • We found our inner crafter.

  • We had a game of Uno. 

  • We dove for pennies in our backyard pool.

  • We took the tag game outside.

  • We caught fireflies!

Even though power outages are a pain in many ways, it was truly a beautiful and memorable night, and reminded me once again how important unplugging with my husband and daughter is in my life. Especially when we’re unplugged… literally.

Want more ideas? See how to not get bored when the power goes out.

Summer’s here!

And that means the pools are open, the beaches are hopping and the sprinklers are sprinkling. Most importantly? School’s out ... and that means kids have a lot of free time on their hands!

Everyone wants to have fun in the sun all summer long, but how can we occupy energetic kiddos on that inevitable rainy summer day? How can you turn your cooped-up kids into happy little campers?

Crafts, of course!

From coloring to stamping to cooking up some slime (together!), we’ve compiled some of the best crafting ideas around - all in a single (boredom-free) location!

Here they are!

Crafting isn't...
