Just some yoga pics

Lovely half bind bow pose!

Still my favorite place to practice.

Rare peacock moment

The pose I expect to work on for another 5 years!

Cleanse no more!

Kind of glad to be done with my juice cleanse! It was only 3 days long and to be honest, it was much easier than I thought. I've done juice cleanses on my own before the craze of juice companies and packaged cleanses and I have to say I like the 5 juices a day + 1 smoothie format. Doing it on my own I think I would try to drink every hour or two and I would probably have about 6-8 juices depending but no smoothie. I felt more full with the smoothie and I honestly only needed the 4 juices + smoothie. I have 3 left over so I am half cleansing now. It seems to work out for me to have most of my calories early, since I get up early and work out in the mornings. By the time I get to dinner I'm ok with skipping it sometimes or replacing it with a juice, fruit or small salad. Planning on having a yummy salad today with avocado in it. My body wants more fat though some of my love grace. shakes had almonds or coconut oil in it. Maybe meat will happen in my diet in a few days! Excited for that. But really using this opportunity to not dive into a box of cookies or something crazy. :)

Hitting reset on my body

Ananda helps me reset my spirit, trying out this juice cleanse to reset my poor diet habits! I am on day 2 of a 3 day cleanse by love grace. It includes 5 juices a day with one smoothie. I think there are enough calories to keep me going even while working out. I think I'm doing pretty good. Day 1 was definitely easier than I thought! I even skipped one of my juices. Hoping to keep with it today. I only found myself aggravated when I watched the food network and they were talking about SPAM! ACK. Now I feel like everything smells like SPAM or salty nitrate-y processed meats...kinda yummy...BUT I had my love grace. green protein smoothie and am looking forward to my next juice in 2 hours!

Playing with primal

I have been introduced to this idea of crawling by one of the best personal trainer's ever (Coach Fury) When babies first begin to crawl its not just an amazing development for their bodies, muscles and joints but also the connections they're making with movement and their brain function. As adults we've strayed so far of the great purposes of crawling which are -connecting movements to our thinking and also playing!!!!! We walk around so stuck in our heads and egos. We sometimes forget to play. Crawl with me...this month...Wednesdays at noon at Jai Yoga Arts! An exploration in Lila! The dance between karma and dharma -learning how to enjoy it.
