That means there are 7 other ways to practice yoga. If you study the root of the word yoga, it means to yoke or to unite.

There are a few nuances to that, depending on the condition, but in general, eating low-glycemic foods minimizes fluctuations in blood sugar and minimizes inflammation.

I no longer feel that way and I want to share with you why just in case you could scream if you see another Facebook group.

There’s Accountability In Community…

The not so great truth about agave

I was recently having a conversation or actually inserted myself into a conversation while having my nails done at the spa about agave. One woman made the comment that she didn’t use agave because it’s so bad for you, and the person doing her nails agreed, saying, “oh no, agave is so bad for you”. Here is where I inserted myself into the conversation…
