It is a beautiful start to the weekend here…I hope it is where you are too!
I figured I needed some spinach greens in my life again this morning…
I drank the green monster outdoors to wake up my body…
In this dazzling GM = 1 cup hemp milk, 2 small bunches of spinach, 1 tbsp maple butter, 1/2 frozen banana, 7 strawberries, 1 tbsp chia seeds. (awesome combo!!!!!)
Much better. What would I do without Green Monsters in my life!?
and some flowers for you to enjoy…
Cheer me up buttercup…
Yoga As Therapy?
In last night’s How To Beat PMS post, I forgot to mention that I have been using yoga stretches to help my back pain. In particular, I love the Cobra and Camel poses for my lower back. They feel so soothing!
One of my favourite yoga websites, Yoga Journal, has a fantastic therapeutic guide for all kinds of ailments such as:
- Back Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Mild Depression
It is pretty exciting to think that certain kinds of yoga poses could help with all of that!
What’s your take on yoga used as a therapeutic tool? Have you ever tried it or targeted specific ailments with certain poses? What are your favourite poses?
We’re off to the Farmer’s Market….see you later with the recap! Have a fabulous day.
I have been reading your blog for a while, and I just noticed that I haven’t seen pics of Sketchie for a while–did I miss a post? Is he still around? :)
haha yup he is!
My upper back kills at work – sitting at a desk – blech. I’m always trying to work it out by walking at breaks. The best thing for it is yoga though.
I like to get to class early and take a yoga block and stick it between my shoulder blades on the medium setting. I lay back on it and put my feet together in baddha konasana. It feels so good to open my heart up and just stay there for a few breaths. I usually let my head fall back but it also feels good to suport your head with a blanket, pillow, or another block.
