8 Women Offer Co-Op Wellness, Safe Healing Space In St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — A fusion of services that include self-healing and growth are offered in a peaceful space called The Collective St. Pete that opens on Monday.

This new venue isn’t just a yoga studio, it offers a variety of services provided by eight professional women who each bring their self-improvement specialties to the community.

“It’s a co-op wellness space,” one of its certified yoga instructors, Amanda Riker, told Patch. “This is a space that is supposed to feel safe, and it’s a place where a person can try a new modality and grow.”

Dani Mae, one of its co-founders, said one of the goals of their business model is to allow teachers, creators and service providers to use their studio space and therapy room on their own terms.

Breathwork and Ayurveda are a couple of styles offered in the variety classes at the studio. Ayurveda is a holistic

How Nature Is Holding Space For Black Women & Their Trauma

It’s been months since most of us have booked a spontaneous girls trip, enjoyed a low-lit celebratory meal inside of a restaurant, or swayed to the beat at a concert; the types of moments that make us feel alive and allow us to escape the heaviness that can accompany the experience of traversing this world inside a Black body. Being forced to stay indoors and watch the world turn inside out has left many of us breathless and scrambling for an outlet — something that could hold our pain and trauma; something that could not only be a source of joy, but also one of healing.

In a world that constantly tells Black women that we aren’t worthy of joy or healing (see: life-altering pay disparities and potentially deadly medical biases), there are very few places that can offer much-needed solace. However, nature — the one

Parking lot wedding reserves space in each other’s heart

YOUNGSVILLE, N.C. — Carrie Grace McQuaid and John Michael Simpson exchanged vows on Sept. 27 missing some of the trappings of a traditional wedding.

The bride didn’t get a dance with her dad, nor the groom with his mother. There was no dinner banquet for 250 guests. Some loved ones had to watch via Zoom.

The whole affair took place in a parking lot.

And yet, it was the perfect start for a couple’s matrimonial adventure: proof that, even in a pandemic, love finds a way.

“Super cute. Very Carrie,” guest Judy Strickland said at the end of the ceremony, which she and most of the others in attendance watched through their windshields. “If anybody could do this, Carrie is the one who could make it happen.”

Marrying in a parking lot was not Carrie’s original plan. But it hasn’t been a good year for plans.

Commander of Boeing’s First Manned Flight to Space Pulls Out to Attend Daughter’s Wedding

Astronaut Chris Ferguson, who was expected to serve as the commander of Boeing’s first test flight to space next year, announced he’ll be giving up the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity due to “several commitments” he cannot afford to miss.

In a video posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Ferguson, 59, revealed the news, calling the decision “difficult and personal,” but reassured his followers that he remains “deeply committed to human spaceflight.”

Though the astronaut remained mostly general in his explanation — only saying that the decision was due to prioritizing his family and important commitments — a spokesperson at Boeing confirms to PEOPLE that one of those commitments included his daughter’s wedding.

“I want to share with you a difficult and personal decision I’ve had to make,” he said in the clip. “I have chosen to step aside as commander of the crewed flight test, scheduled

Fills is bringing Berliner-style doughnuts to original Blue Star Donuts space

Back in early March, I found myself talking on the phone with Katherine Benvenuti, a recent Portland transplant with an impressive resume including some of California’s top restaurants and bakeries. The interview was supposed to be for a story about the new bakery Benvenuti was opening next to Bar King, the then-upcoming restaurant at the former home of Trifecta. But a delay pushed the opening back into late March, and by then, coronavirus cases were surging and Gov. Kate Brown had issued a ban on in-person dining across the state. I put the interview to rest in the small graveyard of stories I was working on just before the pandemic upended everything.

Flash forward to this week, and I’m on the phone with Benvenuti again. Only this time, we aren’t talking about the Bakery at Bar King, which opened its handsome cafe at 726 S.E. Sixth Ave. in August after

Astronaut chooses daughter’s wedding over space test flight | National News

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The commander of Boeing’s first astronaut flight has pulled himself off the crew so he’s on Earth — not at the International Space Station — for his daughter’s wedding next year.

It’s the second crew switch for Boeing’s Starliner capsule, grounded until the end of this year or early next because of software problems encountered during the first test flight last December.

Boeing astronaut Chris Ferguson announced his decision Wednesday. Last year, NASA astronaut Eric Boe stepped aside from the first Starliner crew for medical reasons. Both were replaced by experienced space station astronauts.

These Two Fashion Resale Web Sites Want To Occupy More Space In Your Closet

With more than 14,000 stores expected to close this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially cruel to physical retailers.
