Asana of the month:


(Dawn- your
AHH sanna)

Dhanu ~ Bow


Strengthens the back
Stretches the chest, abdomen and hip flexors.
Improves digestion and helps to relieve constipation.
Helps to relieve menstrual cramps.

How to do this pose:
(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. Lie on your stomach with your legs straight out. Inhale.

2. As you exhale bend your knees so that your heels are close to your buttocks and reach back for your ankles. Keep the knees and feet hips width apart.

3. Think of creating a long spine by drawing the top of your head up and forward and drawing your tailbone down and back. Create length in your neck as well by creating space between your ears and your shoulders. Slide your shoulder blades down towards your hips and lengthen your neck.

4. Allow your chest to be open and instead of sinking into your hips and lower back, think of creating space there as well.

5. Breathe calm, slow breaths and stay in this pose up to 30 seconds. When you gently release this pose come into childs pose and sit back towards your heels with the forehead towards the floor.

Things that I Love and Recommend:

CD ~ AM Radio, Radioactive
AM Radio's debut CD just out July 1st has gotten rave reviews from everyone from Billboard to MTV... to me ( and not just because my big brother is in the band.)
This Pop/Rock CD is definitely a must have in your collection.
You can check them out at their website


Book ~ The Sound and the Fury by Willliam Faulkner
My favorite book of all time. A challenging read but well worth it. This book has so many levels you may also want to pick up the cliff notes to make sure that you are opening your mind to all the possibilities.

Something to Think About:

Eat Clean to Get Lean

How much food is in your food?
How much of what you eat is actually real, nutritious, unprocessed food? Summer is a great time to get back to clean food. Get rid of the processed foods and sauces and get back to food in it's natural state. Lot's of fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean proteins without all the salt, sugar and additives of processed food. Learn to prepare healthier, lighter choices that actually nourish your body instead of just satisfying your taste buds. Eliminate the salt, sugar and additives and watch the weight begin to drop.
