It is always good to switch Yoga teacher every now and then so that you get to hear and learn different things. My usual Sunday class was replaced by Xiang, a male teacher with huge belly. lol. We don’t always get the chance to see ugly teacher, don’t we? Alright, albeit his huge belly, he is as flexible like any one of us. Forward bend, headstand, split…. no problem at all but he did claim that the huge belly does blocking his way in forward bending. Back to the class, it’s the usual Sunday afternoon where people would prefer to stay home for nap rather than working out. The classes consist of three yogis only.
End of the class, Xiang explained a few theory to us like the benefit of yoga. It helps to increase flexibility and increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons.Â It is important to always practice counter pose for every asana.Â Failing which, the muscle will get harden.Â Once it is harden, there is no way to make it flexible again.Â Just look at the guy in the gym – 6 packs and huge muscle.Â But then, these people is not able to remove their shirt or even reaching out to scratch their back.Â Good thing I always love Yoga.
Friends and relatives has been envy as how I could go on a holiday in Las Vegas so often. Well, I can tell you that I am not a rich man wife so I have to learn not to live like one. Las vegas hotels doesn’t come cheapÂ especially if you are a walk in customer.Â I always do my bookings on line.Â That way, you get to compare prices and at the same time, grab a deal or two.
Many years back, we bought a brand new 1.3 national made car under our tight budget even though we know the car is literally under power. To boost up the power, instead of changing a bigger engines which weight more and and more expensive, we opt for supercharger i.e. a device that add more power by forcing more air into the combustion chamber which give your car a greater horsepower.
Sanskrit: Parivrtta Upavistha Konasana
Don’t get mixed up with ‘revolved’ and the non-revolved version of this asana. Basically, with Side Seated Angle Pose, one just stretches the upper body and lean forward down as far as possible towards one leg. With the Revolved Side Seated Angle Pose, from a seated position regardless if you bend one of the knee or not, lean your body side way towards the outstretched leg. It gives you a different type of stretches. With the ‘revolved’ version, one have to be very flexible on the shoulder and the other stretches more on the hip. Try both the asana and you will know which category you are from. Basically, I am more flexible on the shoulder than the hip. From this, I would prefer the Revolved side seated angle pose than the other one.
With the cost of living going up that it almost touches the ceiling, I think it is now time earn some side income. What we earn is not enough to make ends meet. The Bosses is not giving us a pay raise because the petrol hike has affected everyone. The only solution now is probably looking for a small business for sale so that I can be my own boss.
Many months back while i was blog hopping, I stumble upon yoga books by Dharma Mittra.Â Incase you were wondering who the heck he is, Dharma Mittra is the yoga guru best known for creating the “Master Yoga Chart of 908 posture”.Â His work on the poster inspired me tremendously.Â The first time I set my eye on the poster, I was flabbergasted seeing him meticulously photographed himself in 1300 yoga posture.Â His more recent book titled “Asana: 608 Yoga Poses” was published in 2003.Â I’m dying to get hold of that!
I don’t usually take words for grantedÂ especially when it comes to health food or diet pills.Â Every company claim their product is the best but how true is it and how you can find out the truth?Â Don’t just read the testimonial on their website.Â You wouldn’t know if they are fiction.Â I rely a lot on Sybervision and also CBS for product review.Â You get the truth, nothing but the truth.Â Take Miracleburn for example.Â Â Who do you want to believe?Â Their ‘official’ website or public reviewer website.Â It is up to the consumer now.
During our last holiday to the pat zoo, the Kids was so thrill to go on the pony ride.Â My 8 years old sat on a pony all by herself and since my 3 years was too young to ride by herself, I decided to hop on the horse with her. I was excited as this is my first time on riding on a horse.Â When the horse started to move, I can tell you, that is the most uncomfortable rides I’ve ever ride on.Â I think they should invest in a better quality saddles.
A cup of drink albeit any type of drinks will not be as healthy as the one you make at home, or at least they are free from excessive sugar and fat free ingredients.Â Just as much as I love smoothies, I made them at home quite often too using the finest ingredients.
This is MY way of making a cup of healthy Strawberry milk shake/smoothie:
Frozen some strawberry flavoured milk in an ice tray. Frozen a cup of low fat yoghurt too. Once set, place them in a blender with 6 pieces of fresh strawberries. No sugar add, please! Blend ingredients till smooth.
Garnish with strawberry and serve immediately.Â You can be a bit creative by adding banana + strawberries.Â They taste great too.
Ever since MIL passed away from colon cancer, Hubby has been spending more than 30 minutes each day sitting on the toilet bowl waiting for some ‘magical’ to happen. That frustrate me a lot as I think he is spending too much time hogging the loo all to himself. Maybe I should get Hubby to go for a colon cleanse.
