Exercise of the month:

Virabhadrasana III
(Warrior 3 Pose)


  • Strengthens the abdominals, spinal stabilizers, gluteals, legs, shoulder stabilizers and ankles.
  • Trains the body to balance & hold strong posture.

How to do this exercise:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, neck problems or are pregnant)

1. Stand with feet together, arms down to the sides. Zip the abs. Lunge the left leg back with the left toes toward the left. Back leg is straight.

2. Front leg is bent with the knee over the ankle, toes are forward. Lift the back leg and lengthen the toes toward the wall behind you. As you lift the leg, fold forward at the hips so that the body is one straight line from the head to the lifted toes.

3. Open the chest, keep the scapulae neutral and keep as much space between the shoulders and ears and you can while you reach the arms forward.

5. Hold this pose from 15 seconds to 2 minutes, while the breath remains calm and fluid. Let your breath be your guide as to how long to stay in warrior 3.

Things that I Love and Recommend:

A Time to Love
Stevie Wonder

The CD we've been waiting for for 10 years. As usual, filled with beautiful ballods, great funk and a couple of duets - one with India Arie, two with his daughter Iesha (the inspiration for "Isn't She Lovely")

Something to Think About:

As we are in the month of Thanksgiving - Today name 1 thing you are grateful for and every day before you get out of bed add 1 more thing to that list. By the end of the month you will be staying in bed a little longer in the morning to make it through the long list of things you are grateful for.
