‘Yoga Woman’ words and yoga game.

Who remembers the game ‘hang man?’ Here’s the yoga version. ‘Yoga man’ or ‘yoga woman’ using yoga poses instead of random words. Drawing a yogi in mountain pose instead of a man hanging. Teaching kids about ahimsa/nonviolence while at the same time teaching them yoga poses. It’s so fun! All the kids loved it!


How to set up and do anahata pose

Here is a short video for you to see how to set up and practice anahata pose. This pose is followed by reclined butterfly. This is a great way to start a heart opening yoga practice, a great start to any good practice or to simply start your day with by getting into your heart chakra. My friend Muriel taught me this at Nosara Yoga Institute and I’m thankful because it really is a nice pose!

My first batch of DIY natural deodorant

My first official batch of DIY natural deodorant. Here’s how I made it: you’ll need coconut oil, baking soda, corn starch and essential oils. I took 1/4 cup of baking soda & 1/4 cup corn starch and mixed it into a bowl. Then I added 6 tablespoons of coconut oil. Mash it together with a fork until completely mixed. I then added a few small drops of lavender oil and a few small drops of tea tree oil. Voila! I am storing my batch in this glass jar. My boho hippie self has no problem slabbing it onto my pits. #diy #naturaldeodorant

So much random goodness

Made my morning smoothie ahead of time. This deliciousness had leftovers that I could enjoy tonight. So much random goodness in this one, especially since I added a scoop of some sweet potatoes that I boiled earlier and had added cinnamon to them. Recipe: avocado, a few slices of mangoe, some pineapple, a kiwi. a scoop of sweet potatoes and coconut water. Yea!!


A recipe for a SIMPLE natural deodorant

I am psyched about this new simple recipe that I experimented with tonight. It’s a very simple and reliable way to deodorize.
First of all, you aren’t going to find many toxic free deodorants on the shelf at the local drug store. There are only a few that I actually trust, which to be honest, I’d rather smell than wear a cancer causing deodorant. But really, I don’t want to stink, so instead I choose to eat good foods that aren’t going to leave me reeking. The same digestive system that digests my food also digests the creams and beauty products that I put on my skin.
I’d rather not eat poison so I try and go as organic as possible. If I am supposed to be in the kitchen cooking, shouldn’t I be in the bathroom mixing up creams too?
So I’ve now got this deodorant to try. All it takes is baking soda, coconut oil and lavender essential oil.
Check out the Simple recipe below and slab it on each arm pit.
