posted by Charlotte Bell on April 28, 2015 |

eyebagsHow to Choose the Best Eyebags for Your Practice Savasana is yoga’s most important asana. It is the time when your body and mind integrate the benefits of your practice.

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 27, 2015 |

northernspykaleKale Salad for Meatless Monday After decades of growing and consuming lots of kale, I’m so happy to see this vitamin- and mineral-packed leafy green finally getting its due.

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 15, 2015 |

upward bowUse a Yoga Wedge to Deepen Your Upward Bow Upward Bow (Urdva Dhanurasana) is one of the emblematic yoga asanas. “Exhilarating” is probably one of the best descriptors for Upward Bow.
