This past year, I made a commitment to myself to be more in tune with my body and fitness. Being mindful and centered is something that’s important to me, but without frilly affirmations in pink pen and cheesy mantras. I wanted a real and engaging perspective to develop.

Accepting responsibility is the first step to change. This is what Dishan Elise, owner of human@ease, teaches through her The BEST Plan program developed for individuals who want positive change in their health and well-being. However, they get more than they bargained for when they realize this change permeates throughout their families, communities, and even the planet.
“BEST” is an acronym for “Balance, Energy, Strength, and Tranquility”. It is a 12-week program that covers all aspects of health and well-being. This complete program provides the tools for radical transformation. You can see some real life examples here. The BEST Plan is designed to deal with past conditioning and emotional obstacles related to nutrition and to break the addiction to processed foods. Dishan says “Clients are educated on proper diet and exercise and we incorporate methods to strengthen and improve all systems of the body.”
Seeing how impactful the plan was for her members, whom she calls her “BESTies”, she decided the way to have the most positive impact on our planet was to bring The BEST Plan to everyone. She understood that she wasn’t the only fitness facility bringing positive change to people’s lives, but also knew that The BEST Plan was unique in that it covers everything a body needs. In reflecting on this, her idea for a comprehensive coaching platform was born which she calls BEST.everywhere. Continue reading
Being a new Mom or Dad is super exciting, but, let’s be honest… it’s also very scary. Suddenly you are faced with providing for a little person that you love – whom you want to give safety, comfort and happiness – but maybe you’re not be sure exactly how!?
That’s why Flying Squirrel is supplementing their excellent customer service and high quality children’s goods with a new addition - Greenpoint Mommy Classes!
These FREE classes at Flying Squirrel begin this Thursday, July 24th at 10:30 am. This first class will feature two postpartum doulas who will instruct you in the basics of swaddling, an ancient blanket wrapping practice known to calm, soothe and restrict your baby’s movements during sleep, helping to keep them safe in their cradle. As a bonus, attendees will recieve 30% off Aden & Anais swaddles to take home, a top selling product at Flying Squirrel. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other new parents in the neighborhood; because, after all, the best place to learn is in a supportive community!
