Indie Ogden Spotlight: Rolfing Bodywork with Lala at Front Climbing Gym

Last week I went to the Front Ogden, stripped down to my skivvies and tried something new. Lala had me lay on a heated bed filled with crystals and stones and she got to work doing a form of bodywork called Rolfing. So, what is it exactly? Basically, she massaged and moved my muscles back into place. It was strange and very healing all at once. Normally I find myself drifting off to sleep during my massage appointments but this time...

Relaxing at Sego Lily Spa

It has been a pretty chaotic January so far with the Indie Ogden Awards, a massive sinus infection, a shedding husky dog, a kid with walking pneumonia, 1 round of stomach flu, a couple of falls on ice and falling asleep on the couch a few too many times while binge watching Gilmore Girls. My body was in 100 different kinds of knots, and it’s was only halfway through the month. Thankfully, just as I was ready to throw myself...

Little Yogis Class | The Lotus Wellness Spot

We took the kids to a Little Yogis class at Lotus Studio on 25th Street in Ogden. The sweet and passionate Erika started out teaching them about Bhramari pranayama, or bee breathing. Bhramari pranayama is a breathing technique that is used to calm the mind down and release agitation, frustration and anxiety.   The kids were taught to make the proper humming sound (hence the bee breathing name) and then they were each encouraged...

Indie Ogden Review & Spotlight: Hippie Skin

I am about to do something I didn’t think I would be ok doing, I am going to show off my makeup free face.  As a teen I suffered from awful acne and still have the dark scars as a result. It’s hard for me to go makeup free even when my skin is clear because of them. I was excited to try out Hippie Skin to help regulate my oily skin and clear up some stress breakouts but I was not expecting it to fade my scars. I have used...
