Summer has left us and Fall has welcomed us with a big roar!  It seems lots of people are happy to be indoors right now, as many of our classes are almost full.  With people registering early for classes, it has made a remarkable difference in what we've been able to offer you.  We attribute our success to you!

Later this month, we'll be offering some new series of classes, so be sure to check in at www.intoyoga.ca and visit our "classes" pages.  Let's keep the momentum of full classes going!

This month's newsletter offers you a deep back bend with the Bow Pose.  This is more of an intermediate asana, so challenge yourself, but be gentle.  Along with building the immune system find out four other very important reasons to be taking  Vitamin C daily.  Want to improve your flexibility?  You can, but don't expect to go from stiff to supple overnight. Falafels anyone?  Why not eat a few while learning some sign language to communicate not only with friends, but your baby.

But first, check out our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm, and call the location of your choice to register!
 



Bow Pose (Dhanurasana)
 

Instructions:

1.  Lay on your stomach with your legs straight and arms by your sides.

2.  Bend both knees and reach back with your hands to grasp the inner edges of your feet or ankles.

3.  Inhale deeply.

4.  Exhaling, push your heels away from your buttocks, lifting your thighs, head and chest away from the floor. Keep your neck in line with your spine.

5,  Hold posture and breathe.

6.  Inhale. Exhaling release and relax.

Four Reasons Why Vitamin C is Important

When the cough, sniffles, and aches start, many people will load up on extra vitamin C. Helping boost the immune system is a familiar benefit of the vitamin. But do you know what else vitamin C is good for? Or how much vitamin C you need?

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that it doesn’t build up in body tissues for later use like fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). Rather, the body uses vitamin C when it needs it and then flushes the rest out. The benefit of this is that there is very little risk of toxicity from supplementation. However, that also means we have to constantly supply the body with vitamin C to reach effective concentrations to reap the health benefits it can provide.

Improve Your Flexibility with Yoga
www.yoga.about.com


If you ask people why they exercise, most will stay to stay healthy, keep fit, or because it makes them feel good. Not a lot will mention flexibility, but it's a key part of maintaining your health and avoiding injury, especially as you age.

The stretching you do in yoga is a great way to improve your flexibility. It's a commonly held misconception that you have to already be flexible to do yoga. In fact, the opposite is true: doing yoga regularly is a sure way to become more flexible. If that's your goal, here are some poses that target major muscles groups that tend to get tight from sitting for long periods or even from other types of exercise, like running.

Staying in the poses for several minutes is the way to get a good stretch. Many times you can feel several different phases of opening as you stay in a pose for longer. Don't expect overnight changes, however. For best results, do your stretches daily. Click here for poses to give you some options to fit your current level of flexibility.

Falafels (36 Balls)
www.vegetariantimes.com

 

The most time-consuming step in this recipe is soaking the chickpeas for 24 hours. After that, the falafel balls come together quickly and easily. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, tahini, hot sauce, and a minty yogurt sauce, such as Cucumber Raita from vegetariantimes.com.

Ingredients

1 cup dried chickpeas, rinsed and sorted

1/2 tsp. plus 1/3 tsp. baking soda, divided

1 small leek, white and light green part cut into 4 or 5 pieces

1 cup fresh parsley leaves

3 cloves garlic, peeled

3 cloves garlic, peeled

1 Tbs. lemon juice

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

3–4 drops hot sauce, optional

Preparation

1. Place chickpeas and 1/2 tsp. baking soda in large bowl, and cover with 3 to 4 cups water. Soak chickpeas 24 hours. Drain.

2. Place chickpeas, remaining 1/3 tsp. baking soda, leek, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, salt, pepper, and hot sauce (if using) in bowl of food processor. Process 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until chunky paste forms.

3. Shape 1 Tbs. chickpea mixture into compact ball, pressing out any excess moisture, and place on plate. Repeat with remaining mixture.

4. Heat oil to 350°F in large skillet over medium heat. Add 12 falafel balls, and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned on bottoms. Roll, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until golden brown all over. Transfer to paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining falafel balls.
