First day of school break is almost done. Some friendly passersby left us with hot charcoal so we made a fire. We toasted sandwiches we brought with us for a picnic, and 4hours passed just like that! Tomorrow's another adventure. Days off school are awesome! I love having them with me all day. It reminds me of the good old days, before schools and kindergartens. We would spent all day hiking, exploring, not carrying a damn about the time. Ugh... Time flies so fast and they change so quickly. Enjoy what you have, ya'll!
BIZ Walk & Talk series starts next Tuesday. Join us if you a business owner or someone who's thinking about starting a business. Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite smoothie and let's walk and chat about ideas, achievements, even problems you're facing right now. I'd like to switch locations now and then; but as of right now we will start from Coyote Creek Trail in #morganhill
A local business is closing! Monc in the Vineyard Town Center has leather goods, luggage, men & women’s clothes and fashion jewelry and all of it is 70% Off! I spotted some good 4th of July accessories for next year’s parade. #morganhill#morganhilllife
Very spontaneously my family ended on @thorsonarena this past Sunday. And here are snippets from this awesomeness. More on the blog (link in bio)
I've been on a different planet for the last two weeks. Lots and lots of new things happening. Lots and lots new adventures are being planned... But I had to stop by and say Happy Holidays to all of you. Thank you for this year, that's for sure!
This time of year can be hectic, emotional and overwhelming. Taking time to find your breath and relax your mind and body is a great way to let the chaos slide off your shoulders and let in the joyful parts of the season. This beginner pose improves posture and Pranayama (breath) with an added benefit to stretch and tone your inner thighs and ankles. Best of all, you can do this anywhere at any time, making it a wonderful asana to regain balance, focus and calmness whenever you need.
You can sit with your legs crossed or in half or full lotus. Make sure to sit strong through your spine, pulling the crown of your head up and having a comfortable engagement with your core. With your hands open and welcoming on your knees, pull your shoulders up and back to open your heart and lungs. Relax your shoulders while keeping this openness. Find a comfortable and intentional breath through your nose. If you are feeling particularly stressed, bring in your ujjayi breath with this asana. Not only will your ujjiayi breath bring greater calm and balance, it will increase your oxygen and warm your body.
