My name is Judie. I began this blog in 2008. When I first started blogging, my career was focused on writing about health, wellness and fitness. I wrote two health columns for a popular hyperlocal news site. I also wrote for other website sand magazines. One of my editors called me a suburban seeker since I was constantly covering new forms of healing modalities.
Since then, my passion in health and wellness expanded. I graduated from a Yoga Alliance 300 hour yoga teacher training program in September 2011. I became certified to teach children’s yoga and have taken various specialized kids yoga trainings. When I returned home from a spiritual pilgrimage to India in October 2012, I realized that I did not want to teach adults and decided to focus on teaching yoga to kids. I feel my skills best serve this community.
My interest in energy work has also expanded. I am now a Reiki Master Practitioner. I am also attuned to SunPoint and Kundalini Reiki energy. I continue to cover health and wellness topics for magazines and online sites. I’m always looking for new writing opportunities.
I’m a mom of two daughters and a perfect wife (yeah right!). I’m a born and raised New Yorker living in a NJ burb. I love the color purple, lemon bars and exploring different spiritual paths. I am very, very lucky and feel so grateful for all the great and not so great things that have been in my life.
