Eat Like a Yogi

Yoga is a beautiful practice defined in the Sutras as "the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind," or simply, bringing the mind into focus and quieting the distractions that keep us from seeing and experiencing life clearly and gracefully. Yoga teaches us to connect deeply with our own body, our own nature, our own Self. The wisdom is within us. When we're able to tap into the wisdom of the body and spirit, all our decisions align with our highest Self. That includes our food choices.

It's a practice of tapping into the wisdom of your body, which is always telling you what it needs for optimal health, we

Eye Yoga for Improved Vision

Have you ever heard of the Bates Method? It’s new to me and I’m fascinated. The general idea (and I’m totally paraphrasing) is that contrary to popular belief, our eyesight CAN improve— naturally and drastically. The Bates Method has brought many, many people with bad eyesight (prescriptions in the negatives, stigmatism, poor eyesight since elementary school, etc.) back to total 20/20 vision. So cool right?!
