Quote of the Month

"If we can end the swing of thoughts collected by memories in the past, and the ones that have been shaped through fantasy and projected by imagination into the future, we will find silence. Invite silence, welcome silence, and slowly silence will become a part of you."

Recipe of the month


~ Mixed Berry Muffins ~

1 & 1/4 cup Spelt Flour
1/4 cup Flax Seed Meal
1/4 cup Soy Flour
1/4 cup Corn Meal
1/3 cup Turbinado Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda

Whisk the above ingredients together. You can substitute
regular flour for any of the above flours if you don't have them.

1 cup Soy Milk
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
3 Egg Whites

Mix the above three ingredients. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and mix only until blended.

Fold in 2 cups total of raspberries/ blackberries/ blueberries. (If out of season you can use frozen. They actually have a frozen mix of berries in the stores.)

Pre-heat oven to 400.

Spray muffin tins lightly with oil to prevent sticking. Spoon mixture into pan and fill each cup only 3/4 full. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.

Asana of the month:

Bound Angle Pose
Baddha Konasana

(BAH - Da - Cone- AHH- Sahnna)

Baddha ~ Bound
Kona ~ Angle


Stretches the groin, inner thighs and medial aspects of the knees..
Stimulates digestive system, circulation, reproductive glands, bladder and kidneys.
Relieves anxiety, menstrual and menopausal symptoms and sciatica.

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. Sit on the floor. Bend your knees and bring the soles of the feet together. Gently bring the heels closer to your body as you allow your knees to gently ease down toward the floor. If you have trouble bringing your knees downward you may sit on a folded blanket or towel to raise your pelvis, or you may put a folded blanket under each raised knee for support.

2. Inhale. As you exhale, allow your navel and lower ribs to gently move closer to your feet. As you do this visualize your pelvis and spine moving together. With each inhale lift out of the pose slightly and with each exhale allow that breath to take you through any resistance and deeper into the pose. Use your breath as a guide.

3. Hold yourself in this position as long as your body wants- up to 3 minutes and continue to breathe slowly.

Things that I Love and Recommend:

CD ~ Sting: Sacred Love
Sting is always great! This one is no exception.

Book ~ Awakening the Spine by Vanda Scaravelli
More than a yoga book. A tool for life, a way to rethink your thoughts on movement and on life itself. An easy book to read, filled with beauty. A must have for everyone.

Something to Think About:

Vanda Scaravelli on sight ~

We should be able to look from the back of our head, following the channel that reaches the skull.This will not only give us a wider and enlarged field of vision and a better perspective where the sides will be included, but our eyes will be able to rest and gain benefit.
