Into Yoga Newsletter

October 2008 - Issue 22


Lots of activities and invites this month!  We hope many of them will appeal to you.

We've had a very good turn out for most of our classes and we will be starting some other classes later this month.  Remember to check our website at to find them.  Family Yoga at Greentree Village begins Oct 22 too!  Spaces are being held, but payments are needed to confirm your space.

When registering for classes, I strongly suggest you register early.  We had a few classes canceled last session only to have people call at the last minute wanting to register.  By then it was too late.  I dislike disappointing anyone, so please, when you register for a class, send your payment in right away.

October is a very busy month.

Oh yes, and HAPPY HALLOWE'EN!  Keep safe!

8)    Try this Pose

Hip Walk


This is always a fun one to do.  It's amazing how much it really tones up the abs, while it firms the buttocks and the legs.  And the cardio work out is great!

1.    Sit with legs outstretched, arms at sides

2.    Bending your arms, tucking your elbows at your sides, hands in front and fisted, as though you were running.

3.    Using a swinging motion of the arms, propel your body forward by slightly bending your knees and alternately lifting your buttock from the floor and moving the hip forward.

4.    Now go in reverse.

5.    Try doing this with your arms crossed instead of at your sides.

Please note: Practice at your own risk.

9)    Recipe
Pumpkin-Hazelnut Tea Cake (12 slices)

Ingredient List

3 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 cup homemade or canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup whole-wheat (whole-meal) flour
1/2 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
2 tablespoons flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts (filberts)



Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on low speed, beat together the canola oil, pumpkin puree, honey, brown sugar and eggs until well blended.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flours, flaxseed, baking powder, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and, using the electric mixer on medium speed, beat until well blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the hazelnuts evenly over the top and press down gently to lodge the nuts into the batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn the loaf out of the pan onto the rack and let cool completely. Cut into 12 slices to serve.

11)    Quips and Quotes

Meditation knows nothing of distraction. That's its grace, its beauty, its grandeur: nothing can disturb it. If your meditation can be disturbed that simply means that you are concentrating and have not yet tasted meditation. Osho ©© Osho International
