San Clemente. Our Movers and Shakers - women like Maria Brophy, Missy Will, Alana Yarbrough, Kristen Ritzau, Stephanie Fleming, Lisa Adams and Regina Piazza inspire and encourage us with their stories of success. Baby Boomer Boss, May Yacoob and Resilient Artist, Allison Adams point to the endless and varied opportunities women have to be brave and rise above. As Allison Adams' Groundbreaking Girls project and exhibit reminds us, we have a rich legacy of inspiring women to reflect upon as well. We are moved by women like Harriet Tubman who was born a slave and suffered from a brain injury, yet became an abolitionist and freed hundreds of slaves in her lifetime. Or Helen Keller who was blind and deaf yet went on to be one of the most educated, influential humanitarians of the 20th century. These women from history remind us of other modern-day world changers like Malala

In her book, I Am Malala she says, "Once, I had asked God for one or two extra inches in height, but instead he made me as tall as the sky, so high that I could not measure myself." We celebrate this long line of inspiring women, and we cherish the ones in our lives who are as tall as the sky. As we take time to celebrate, we are reminded of something extraordinary - the quality women have to embody both strength and gentleness, at

AROUND TOWN “I like the idea that a family who works and creates together, stays together, literally and spiritually,” says Crystal Green. Launched in 2013, ICD Green is a small batch skincare/herbal remedy line created from mostly organic, wild crafted ingredients. Body mists, skin toner, and face serum all refresh and repair our outsides. Tinctures and teas work from the inside, easing common ailments like stress, anxiety, and digestive issues. All products are available at ICDGreen.com and in person at the new local market, Source Pop-up, on the 1st Sunday of every month from10 am-3 pm at 117 Cabrillo St, San Clemente

FOR COFFEE CONNOISSEURS & MORE Rapport Coffee by Cafe Smith is a local delight, dedicated to serving complex and consistently delicious coffee, that promotes work done by farmers and coffee roasters. The beans they serve are roasted in L.A. at Lab Coffee, and are included in a diverse range of creative drinks. They have everything from tea macchiatos to traditional cappuccinos. They also make a syrup from Cascara—the cherry that is removed from the coffee bean before roasting—which serves as a delicious addition to sparkling water or a latte. I love afternoons at Rapport, because there is always something fabulous playing on the speakers, and a friendly barista who’s genuinely interested in how I’m doing. Its atmosphere perfectly embodies comfort and style. Check out RapportCoffeeCS.Com

EPIC! YOGA: EMPOWERING PEOPLE, INSPIRING CHANGE EPIC! is not just a surfer’s rallying cry anymore. At Epic Yoga, 1709 N.

San Clemente Lifestyle | May 2018

“THERE’S NOTHING WORSE THAN FEELING LIKE YOUR BODY IS STARTING TO BETRAY YOU,” SAYS BABY BOOMER, MAY YACOOB. Yacoob has spent the past three decades as a yoga practitioner. She trained in numerous styles and philosophies and learned how to teach yoga to older students, particularly of the boomer era. Over the last decade, she has taught yoga to mature adults at San Clemente Methodist Church. She is passionate about helping fellow boomers get the most out of their physical mobility and their intellectual and spiritual growth. For boomers interested in yoga, here are Yacoob’s tips and strategies for safe practice.

HOW TO FI N D T H E B E S T TEACHER FOR YO U Find a well-trained and experienced yoga teacher. Don’t be shy: ask your prospective instructors how long they have taught yoga and whether they have any training in working with special populations such as older adults or people with health challenges.

HOW TO STA RT PRACTI CI N G YO G A Don’t be afraid to work one on one with your instructor. Consider beginning with some individual sessions. Working one on one with a qualified yoga instructor who will tailor a practice specifically designed to address your health goals, is a great way to start practicing yoga.

MY SKINCARE JOURNEY Located in San Cl

THIS IS ME. I have very sensitive skin, am prone to breakouts, have Rosacea, thyroid issues, and my skin

n e Av

reacts to just about everything.

nid aD

I was ready to ditch the prescriptions and oral med-

el M

ications. In 2011, I purged every synthetic and harmful

ar

ingredient out of my bathroom. Then thought, now what? Not finding anything that was pure, that worked, and was effective, I started to research and formulate in my kitchen. All I wanted to do was wash my face without it hurting, treat wrinkles, stop breakouts and feel good about what I was using. Purely out of desperation, I started to put things together to calm, hydrate and heal my skin. Almost immediately, I noticed a difference in my skin, my hair and how I felt. I had to share it! Over two years later, we were ready. In 2013, Qēt Botanicals (pronounced “keet”) was born with nearly 50 products. In 2015, we opened our WI Skin Studio, and in 2017 came our second here in San Clemente. We don’t formulate makeup; we develop plant-based, antioxidant-rich, nontoxic care products. We’ve received nine national beauty awards to date! If you want more guidance for safe products, go to EWG.org and click on the database titled “Skin Deep.” It’s what I started following in 2004. All of our products are ranked in their safest category, and we’re a part of their EWG Verified program. We don’t want to compromise our health for beauty products. We don’t want to just cover up damaged skin. We want to heal and reveal beautiful skin. :)  What we use on the outside counts, but what’s on the inside also matters. Peek at our website, QetBotanicals. com, and click on our January blog “My Skincare Journey” for more of these details.

What is it? Adult acne, Rosacea, eczema, overly-sensitive skin, inflammation, swollen nose, flaking skin, bumpy, painful skin.

Cheers to clean beauty! ~ Lisa

to take interest in the diversity of people, recognizing that we have more that makes us similar than different, and both of those things can connect us. As a contemporary artist, she identifies most with the Pop Art movement of the 50s and 60s, and draws constant inspiration from brave humans of the past and present. After earning her BFA from California Institute of the Arts, Allison set off on a multi-disciplinary career. She is best known for her stylized oil portraits, mostly of women. She's interested in creating distinct shapes and blocks of color but also in evoking personality and emotion, hoping to tell a story through the eyes, and create a deeper human connection between the viewer and the painting. The Groundbreaking Girls portrait project began simply as a search for inspiration. As a newly widowed parent, Allison found strength and empowerment in the stories of influential women throughout history. She aims to honor these women through their faces and remind the viewer of our long legacy as women: passionate, courageous, determined, innovative, intelligent, creative, caring, fierce. On March 24, 2018, OC Contemporary Gallery hosted an event exhibiting Allison's Groundbreaking Girls, in honor of Women's

Maria Brophy MARIA BROPHY IS A GO-GETTER. In 2009 she started a blog after working as an art consultant, and when she realized how high the demand was for that knowledge, she decided to write a book. Though Maria appears quite confident, she remembers being essentially paralyzed by insecurity. “I started and stopped it so many times...I’m glad I didn’t give in to my fear.” Also glad, are the artists who’ve had their careers saved. Her book: Art, Money, Success, was published in 2017 and has been featured on the Amazon Bestseller list. She’s currently working on her next book. Visit MariaBrophy.Com

San Clemente Lifestyle | May 2018


WANDERING THROUGH THE ARCHED DOORWAY OF ERBA IS AKIN TO CROSSING THE THRESHOLD INTO A SLICE OF HEAVEN. Essences of lavender, eucalyptus, rose and verbena whirl, waft, and permeate the senses. Erba, located at 114 Avenida del Mar, is cumulous and airy. The color white is Lisa Yates’, owner since the shops inception in 2002, most cherished color. White represents purity; it’s clean, fresh, and the neutral background of everything. In Yates’ native Italian, “erba” translates to grass, and the ethereal ambience of the shop blends seamlessly with its earthy roots. The experience of Erba really does feel like visiting a heaven on earth. The shop consists of a vast array of European bath and body products, artisan soaps and candles, eclectic jewelry, and a smattering of fun, inexpensive clothing. The displays are artistically designed and most products are available to sample. Outside the front door is a chalkboard sign that reads “Yes, you should.” Because whether it’s a gift for someone else or a treat for you, we all deserve it. “I am Erba’s biggest fan,” says Yates. “Everything in this store is something I would choose for myself, put in my home or giftwrap for someone I love.” Yates’ incentive for opening Erba evolved during a stressful period of her life. To decompress, she began receiving facials that incorporated essential oils and organic products. These facials shifted her outlook and perspective and left her feeling cleansed and renewed. Yates’ goal is to bestow her clientele with similar positive outcomes because there is no doubt that what we put on our outsides affects our insides.

OPEN HOUSE

(CON TI N U ED)

WANDERING THROUGH THE ARCHED DOORWAY OF ERBA IS AKIN TO CROSSING THE THRESHOLD INTO A SLICE OF HEAVEN.

Yates adheres to the principle of shop local, shop small. She lives here in town, is a SCHS graduate, and for many years was a single mom raising three boys. Working in a neighborhood venue that she loved and believed in also enabled her to remain devoted to raising her children as a close knit family unit. Facts like these keep Yates eternally grateful and inspire her to give back to a community that has always supported her. “When I’m buying at trade shows, I enjoy encouraging people’s dreams,” says Yates. “My first and foremost criteria are quality and integrity. Then I ask myself, ‘Would I want it, and does it represent love, beauty, and kindness?’ If I answer yes to these questions then I buy it for the shop regardless if it’s an established brand or not.” Numerous regular clients often refer to Erba as a one stop, one shop treasure hunt or a quaint niche filled with every day luxuries. Occasionally, novice first timers, both male and female, stroll in off the street at a loss as to what to purchase for their special someone. Yates only requires a brief description or a few traits about the recipient then viola…she streamlines a unique gift meant just for them. Whether it is an invigorating eucalyptus room spray, a lavender honey body cream or a piece of jewelry from Spain, her products are handheld works of art. And time and time again, all of these customers return to applaud her successful intuition. As an owner Yates is open, available and approachable; being a four-time cancer survivor has imbued her with limitless compassion. “I have so much love and gratitude in my heart,” says Yates. “When people come in and want to find a gift that expresses that, they can always find it here.” 30

WILL YOUR KNEE PAIN END IN A

TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT? ARTICLE MICHELLE OCELNIK, MA, ATC, CSCS

ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN IN ADULTS OVER 50 IS OSTEOARTHRITIS OR “OA,” A DEGENERATIVE DISEASE WHERE THE CARTILAGE IN A JOINT WEARS DOWN, CAUSING PAIN, STIFFNESS AND DISABILITY.  At greatest risk are those who are overweight, sedentary, have a family history of osteoarthritis and anyone with a prior knee injury or surgery. Women are more susceptible than men. Common treatments include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), weight loss, physical therapy and pain medications.  When symptoms get severe and limit quality of life, physicians recommend a total knee replacement.  The surgery is not without risks and costs.  Serious complications, including heart attack, blood clots, nerve damage, infection and even death occurs in 5.6% of patients. The surgery requires 2-3 days in the hospital and up to one year in rehabilitation.  Additionally, your results may vary.  Between 14% and 53% of patients have some level of persistent knee pain after surgery.  So, what are the alternatives? One option is the BioniCare Knee System, which stimulates the knee with a clinically proven, unique signal delivered using electrodes placed on the knee and thigh. BioniCare was shown to reduce pain, improve function, reduce joint stiffness and reduce medications in multiple clinical studies.  Unlike knee replacement, there are no significant risks or side effects of using BioniCare. Additionally, BioniCare can be used along with other conservative treatments, such as stem cell procedures and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections. Most important, when BioniCare is used for 2250 hours or more, the effect is equal to a total knee replacement. Will your knee pain end in a total knee replacement? It doesn’t have to! 34
