Part of modern yoga is participating in the world around us. We live in a time of upheaval in society and nature, and of great suffering in humans of all ages. Most of us perceive this suffering and wonder what we can do. Perhaps we take action through volunteering, donating or praying. However, without better tools, we often go back to the numbness of sleep. By strengthening our nervous systems and deepening our self-awareness, we will be able to do…
Every Thursday evening during the month of June, Mara Solberg is inviting people to come out and try Yoga on the Farm. It is a unique yoga experience that was born from an idea that was proposed to Solberg.
“I’ve been with Red River Market since it started and have met a lot of people,” Solberg said. “During that, I got involved in a co-starters program through the Prairie Den [where] you learn how to improve your business. While I was there, ideas were bounced around for each of…
Even though it might not feel like it--summer is upon us and festival season is on in full force! Our staff has poured their blood sweat and tears into our top festival picks of the summer. To make it easier on all involved we’ve picked our top Music, Culture, Food, and Outdoors events going on throughout North Dakota, Minnesota and a little Manitoba too. After seeing everything that’s going on, if you’re bored this summer--you must be doing something wrong!
As Mother Nature begrudgingly transitions from winter to spring and summer, getting outside to soak up the sun and breathe in the fresh air is on everyone’s mind. For those looking for that, plus adventure, there is something right outside our backdoor that offers all three – the North Country Scenic Trail.
The North Country Scenic Trail weaves its way 4,700 miles between Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota along the northern United States all the way to Crown Point, New York. Originally…
I’m a big man, I’m tall and powerful, but this also causes some issues in the body department. I suffer from acute scoliosis in my lower back, and pain radiates from this area on a daily basis. I have only ever had one massage previously in my life, and it was so-so.
When I began talking to Stephanie Ramsey at In-balance massage about my pain, she advised me to come in for a visit.
I must admit I was a bit nervous. I was looking for a cure to my pain and relief from multiple areas. I…

I was amid some of the worst anxiety I have experienced in my life. I was worried about money, moving and multiple other things. My chest felt heavy and was dominated by a feeling of constriction and restriction; to both my life and breathing.
A few weeks earlier I had met with a woman named Juliet Trinka. She is the owner of Vedic Earth Medicine and is a holistic healer and shaman. We discussed setting up a session to work on these issues. While our initial meeting was primarily…
A few months ago, I was introduced to the concept of probiotics and how they work with our bodies. I would never have guessed the change that occurred after their introduction into my system.
I always considered myself a fairly healthy eater, indulging sparingly and watching my intake of calories and nutrients diligently. It was only after my partner mentioned the function of probiotics in the system and how they affect the many functions of the gut -- and how we feel as a whole.…
If you were like me when you were a child, you had a rock collection. I never thought in my adult life that I would be starting another one, or for that matter that I would travel back home to my parent’s house and go to the basement in search of my old collection, just to see what precious stones lie in the chest that I used to keep them in.
Unfortunately, the search for my childhood collection came up fruitless, but luckily in the creation of my new collection there is a shop that…
Essential oils. They are all the buzz lately. It seems everyone has heard of them or is purchasing them. Some people know how to use them; others are just interested in the wonder of their complex scents.
Essential oils are as strong as medicine. As they function in nature, essential oils are the immune system of what are considered to be the oldest, most evolved plants.
Another function of essential oils is to attract pollinators, serving a sexual function. But in nature, plants,…
