This is one of my favorite summer side dishes, and it can be made in only minutes! Make sure to try this out soon, while summertime tomatoes are still around. It could serve as an appetizer, a side salad, or I've even thrown it on top of chicken nachos. It's so easy, tasty, and healthy...
Recently I made a purchase that I'm so excited about, it’s ridiculous. Wool Dryer Balls... yep.
I haven't been in the habit of using fabric softener or dryer sheets in years. It’s just personal preference, but I don’t really like to use anything that I don’t have to use. What I do like to do, is to put a couple drops of lavender essential oil on a damp washcloth and place it in the dryer to give sheets and towels a nice scent. I do that instead of dryer sheets.
But now, I've discovered these wool dryer balls and that's all I use anymore. They're so practical... read on for why I now can't live without them.
My previous post on How To Set Up A Home Yoga Practice was a list of tips to help you thoughtfully plan out a space to practice in and how to implement it as a routine.
Consider this Starting a Home Practice, Part 2. As I wrote in my last post, the biggest obstacle I hear people mention to having a home yoga practice is simply: "I don’t know what to do." I also wrote that it’s best to attend a class with a trained instructor who can help you. Sometimes, though, life just gets busy and you’ll want to do your own thing. This list of poses is for those of you who are familiar with the basics of yoga. It's not an instructional piece on specific poses, or a how-to, but more of a guideline of poses that are done routinely in basic classes. I've put them together in a flowing format, meaning one pose naturally flows into the other for cohesiveness.
Here’s a little gift to you… an easy, familiar sequence of poses that you can do on your own.
But, seriously, don’t stop coming to class, ok?
