Bikram Yoga Retreat Mendon Vermont, Bikram Yoga Retreat Puerto Rico, Bikram Yoga Retreat Maui. Great yoga, eat amazing food, meet wonderful people... and laugh A LOT!! Bikram yoga is a beginning yoga class comprised of 26 basic hatha postures, each one practiced twice, in a warm room. The heated room will allow you to heal faster, stretch deeper, feel better without injury. Set up like a chain reaction, the series of postures is designed to continually warm you up so from the beginning to the end of class you will never go into a posture underprepared. You will work your body and mind from the inside out, fingertips to toes, bones to skin - touching on every muscle, ligament, tendon, internal organ in your body - you will feel great!  The series & class is always the same wherever you are on the planet - but you will never have the same class twice! Challenging, rewarding at every level, NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED

 

Eatting seasonally and the living is easy....

Many argue that eating locally is even better than eating organic. Check out this article  in TIME magazine: Eating Better Than Organic  and we will keep you up to date on what is ripe now - what is local now - and where to get it.

As Michael Pollan suggests " Get out of the supermarket whenever you can! You won't find any high-fructose corn syrup at the farmers market - or better at the farm!".

Today I am getting my berry on - you should too. Check out this great smoothie recipe I like to call THE PURPLE (vegan) COW ;)

THE PURPLE (vegan) COW

Servings 2
(because even if you are alone you will want more!)

  • 1/2C  Almonds, soaked in water overnight

  • (this automatically sprouts your almonds giving you 50% more protein in your shake! and allowing the almonds when made into milk be more easily digestible. Who doesn't love that?!)
  • 1.5    Bananas, frozen if you have time or think ahead
  • 2       Dates, pitted and soaked 
  • 3/4C Blueberries 
  • 2t      Spirulina  (optional)
  • 2T     Rice protein powder (optional)
  • 1T     Chia seeds
  • 3C Water, to preferred consistency


    1. Drain and rinse almonds
    2. Put almonds into a blender and puree with Water. Strain off pulp with a fine mesh bag, strainer or cheese cloth and place 2C raw almond milk back into the blender to start.
    3. Following milk, place ingredients into the blender - If you do not have time or forget to soak the dates - no problem - they will just take longer to blend. You can also sub dates or leave them out completely. I find that the sugar in the bananas is perfect for me! but as you get yourself off of refined sugar you may need the dates to sweeten things - naturally
    4. Pulse until the chunks are broken up. Then blend until smooth - adding reserved almond milk if needed to desired consistency
    5. YUM!
