I’m no guru and I don’t have hundreds of hours of certifications. All I can claim is that I did not squander the time that I was given so far. I took care of my body from an early age and realized that a fit body was going to be the vehicle of choice to propel me around the planet to find what I was supposed to find. I ran marathons, biked continents, climbed glaciers, walked across states, sailed oceans, explored reefs and floated myself over yoga mats. If the sun is down I’m a sleep and if it’s up I’m outside. My biggest accomplishment by far is creating a family that enjoys each other and puts up with me.

Back To The Future

I worship my body. I took care of it from an early age and was aware that a healthy body was the key to sucking the nectar out of life. From my late teens — almost 40 years ago — to now, I kept it lean and mean. I ran marathons, biked continents, climbed glaciers,… Read More »

Sandy Storm

When Hurricane Sandy’s full fury struck on Monday night, I peered outside to get a measure of the force. The sound of the wind whistling through the trees was like a loud drone. It increased in pitch and was becoming terribly powerful. My father-in-law Charles – 79, who is visiting us from England seemed visibly… Read More »

It all started with a bike ride – see the movie!

My brother Eyal and I were so focused on riding our tandem Camello from Jerusalem to Eilat that we didn’t notice the other riders. Eyal suffers from Parkinson’s and heart disease and we decided to take a stand against these ailments by riding across Israel to our home town of Eilat with the Hazon Israel… Read More »

Power of Bro’

My brother Eyal and I were raised in paradise. It was the early 60’s in Israel and we had it all, loving parents, a carefree lifestyle and plenty of adventure that would need to sustain us for the years to come. When we reached college age, we went our separate ways. I became a world… Read More »

Rx Yoga – my kind of prescription

Over the past two months I’ve visited several Western and Eastern healers and amassed prescriptions that ranged from steroids, pain killers, lotions and potions. Most of them are sitting in a pile on my desk untouched. I may need them down the road, but for now I decided to seek the kind of medicine that… Read More »

Let’s treat you not your MRI

I visited Dr. Joe today hoping that he would read my MRI report and give me a road map to healing. Joe is a doctor of Osteopathy and he also practices yoga and acupuncture – making him an expert in Eastern and Western thinking. Osteopathic Medicine is the science of dealing with natural forces in… Read More »

The Circle of Charles

Charles, Oren’s granddad, has been staying with us. He goes at his own pace, which judging by the the local iCrowd buzzing around him is very slow. His lucid thoughts come and go, his memories are locked on WWII stories and he sleeps a lot. His world has become small and simple. Today I was… Read More »

L’eggo Your Ego, Dude!

Sometimes in June I completed one of my best Ashtanga-yoga sessions ever. I was in my peak, swishing, sweating, floating, flexing and grinning. There were scores of yogis in the room and I was the oldest and the most accomplished at pushing back age; a man doing his thing if there ever was one. The… Read More »
