3)   Try this Pose

 

BOAT (Navasana)

 

 

As you strengthen your abdominal muscles, you can help eliminate backaches.  Here's a good asana (posture) to help do that.  The Boat pose also improves digestion, and promotes grace and balance.  Hopefully the water will be calm for you. 

1.    Sit with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor.
2.    Bring your hands under your bent knees to clasp the back of the thighs. Inhale.
3.    Exhaling, pull your tummy in and lift your feet slightly off of the floor.
4.    Inhaling, lengthen your spine and lift your chest upward.
5.    Try to raise the lower portion of your legs keeping them together to bring the shins level with the ceiling.
6.    Hold posture and breathe.
7.    Inhale. Exhaling, slowly lower your legs.

Please note: Do this posture at your own risk.


4)    The 15th Annual Wellness Show

www.thewellnessshow.com is one of the finest trade shows that hits Vancouver once a year.  Focusing on all aspects of health and vital living, come see what they have to offer March 2, 3, & 4, 2007 at the Trade and Convention Center in Vancouver.


5)    Recipe

Red Pepper Stew (4 - 6 servings)
published in Good Food by Dr. Gabe Mirkin and Diana Mirkin

1/2 cup red lentils
1/2 cup small white beans
2 onions, chopped
3 cups bouillon
6 medium or 4 large red bell peppers,
cut in 1/2 chunks
1 teaspoon oregano or marjoram
1/2 teaspoon thyme
pinch of cayenne, or to taste
1 cup white wine
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
freshly ground black pepper to taste
cooked whole grains (optional)
plain yogurt for garnish (optional)

Soak the lentils and beans in water overnight. Drain and set aside. Combine the onions and bouillon in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, while you chop the peppers (5-10 minutes). Add the peppers, spices, wine, tomato paste, and the soaked lentils and beans. Return to boiling, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about an hour or until the beans are tender. Stir occasionally and add more bouillon if needed. When ready to serve, stir in the parsley and black pepper. Serve over whole grains or as a soupy-stew, topped with a spoonful of yogurt if desired.


6)    Cleanse with a Friend

As you probably know, I've partnered with a fabulous company that offers nutritional cleansing at the cellular level.  This means that your body is fortified with all the nutrients it needs while scouring out the impurities.  All the internal systems of the body are cleansed synergistically and together.  Instead of focusing on one area at a time, these products sweep the blood, the liver, the colon, etc simultaneously.  The results I'm seeing in family, friends and others has been quite remarkable.

I know some of you are hesitant to try cleansing for various reasons.  You can check the FAQ below for some of them.  But I urge you to put your trepidation aside, pair up with a friend, and do it together.  There's nothing like having someone to motivate and to motivate you.  Pick a partner, take the plunge, and call me for more information, or to set yourself on the road to better health.

FAQ

Q:    Will these products give me diarrhea?
A:    No.  They will clean the impurities from your colon but it is unlikely you will find a difference in your frequency or consistency in your bowel movements.

Q:    Will I be hungry as I cleanse?
A:    You are never totally without food.  Most people are quite comfortable.  Some even find they feel full.

Q:    What are the ingredients?
A:    You can find the whole list of products and ingredients at http://www.cleanseyourbody.isagenix.com.  Click on the CLEANSE or NUTRITION links.  Then click on the products you are interested in.  At the bottom of each page is a link for all the ingredients.

Q:    What if I'm on medications?
A:    While you do your cleanse, ask your healthcare provider to monitor you throughout the process.

Q:    What's the cost?
A:    It depends on what you purchase.  You can pay retail prices or purchase a membership for $36 which allows you to purchase at wholesale prices which is about a 30% difference in cost.  All prices are in US dollars.

Q:    How is the product shipped?
A:    The products are shipped by courier

Q:    Where do the products come from?
A:    Chandler, Arizona

Q:    Is there duty I have to pay for it to come across the border?
A:    No.  However there there are taxes and shipping which are calculated into your final purchase total when ordering.

A:    You can place your first order directly with me by calling 604-421-9872 or emailing me at info@intoyoga.ca.  Then you will be set up with a wholesale account so you can purchase your own products thereafter.


7)    Income Opportunity

I am looking for positive people who are interested in teaming with me to bring the benefits of nutritional cleansing to others.  If you are interested in improving the health and financial status of yourself and others, and have fun doing it, I would embrace the opportunity to discuss your options.  It's easy, simple and rewarding.  Contact me anytime at info@intoyoga.ca.


8)    Bone Density Clinic

If you haven't signed up for our Bone Density Cllinic to be offered in North Burnaby at our Revs Health Club location sometime during Spring 2007 yet, make sure you do so quickly.  The date is still to be determined but it will be held on either a Saturday or Sunday.

Using ultrasound on the radius of the forearm, the procedure is quick (about 10 minutes), painless (no needles) and very accurate. The results are immediate, easily understood, and you can take them directly to your doctor.  Because this test is by ultrasound, it is even safe during pregnancy.  The cost will be under $40 (gst extra).

The company we will be using is OsteoGuard.  They use the very latest equipment and their testers are highly trained experienced professionals.  You can check them online at www.OsteoGuard.com.

If you are interested in participating, please make sure you contact me early at info@intoyoga.ca.  My list is already growing.


9)    Quips & Quotes

When I have been truly searching for my treasure, every day has been luminous, because I've known that every hour was a part of the dream that I would find it. When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I've discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for me to achieve. ~Paulo Coelho
