I'm rooting for the Biel/Timberlake coupling to stay strong, and at the end of the day, the Cameron/JT reunion is really on a professional level. But tell me, would you trust your partner to work with an ex?
Do you ever ask your boyfriend or husband to carry your purse when your hands are full? Do you send him to the store to buy you tampons or drag him to yoga classes on Sunday morning even though you know he'd rather be watching football with his buddies? Sometimes we do things we loath just to appease our significant others so ladies, do tell, what embarrassing things do you ask your partner to do with or for you knowing he'll say yes?
I haven't been this excited about something in a long time. Acro Yoga blends the spiritual wisdom of Yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the energy and bliss of acrobatics. I can tell you, it's the most fun you can have with another person without the risk of getting pregnant.
Acro Yoga is based on those three ancient practices, and form the foundation of a new practice that cultivates trust, connection, and playfulness. The aim is to bring people into a state of union with themselves, with others, and with the divine.
They are based in San Francisco, and offer ongoing classes in the Bay Area. Fortunately, they also travel internationally to share this practice. Check out their website for a complete schedule of classes and retreats.
This is an amazing video from the 2007 San Francisco Yoga Journal Conference. There are some incredible tricks by regular folks who practice Acro Yoga. It starts off slow, but once it gets going, the creativity will completely floor you.

Did you know that men are likely to die, on average, nearly six years earlier than women -- and they have higher mortality rates for many of the leading causes of death in America, including heart disease, accidents, suicide, chronic liver disease, and cancer?
This is why June 11th marks the start of the International Men's Health Week to honor the importance of men's health and wellness. As women, the idea around men's health can sometimes seem foreign but it is important to be in the know when it comes to the health of any man in your life.
A book I highly recommend around this subject is From Boys to Men: A Woman's Guide to the Health of Husbands, Partners, Sons, Fathers, and Brothers ($16.00) by M.D. Emily Senay and Rob Waters. As the women in men's lives -- mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters -- we are traditionally in charge of managing their health concerns. From Boys to Men is a fabulous resource designed to arm women with much-needed information about men's health issues and to help them educate their male loved ones on how to take care of themselves. Filled with expert medical advice, personal anecdotes, and a healthy dose of humor, From Boys to Men should resonate with you if you have a man in your life (dad, brother, husband, son, etc). I can honestly say this book is my bible to men's health, especially since I primarily grew up around women. Buy it from SimonSays.com.
