Taking a Vacation...

Ah, vacation. It’s a beautiful thing, whether your definition of it is traveling to some exotic locale or staying put and exploring spots in your hometown. It doesn’t matter if you prefer stay-cating, going abroad, or taking a road trip complete with a tent and camping gear. 

Breaking from work and taking a breather can be done in a variety of ways. It’s no surprise then that what people state as their reasons for going on vacation vary, but with a similar common theme. Time away from work—and everything that goes with it, from emails to to-do lists to drafting proposals and attending meetings—is essential to your well-being.

Why not take a yoga vacation or yoga retreat? It’s as simple as googling “yoga retreat” in your area. Or perhaps you would like to explore the opportunity of a destination retreat to an Island or a foreign country. There are so many options! Another good source is inquiring at your local yoga studio. 🙏

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali...

The Yoga Sutra, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms, outlining the eight limbs of yoga. These "threads" (as sutra translates from Sanskrit) of wisdom offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful lIfe. Patanjali is the sage who wrote the sutras.

The truth is that nobody really knows much about Patanjali. We don't even know exactly when the sage lived. Some practitioners believe he lived around the second century BCE and also wrote significant works on Ayurveda (the ancient Indian system of medicine) and Sanskrit grammar, making him something of a Renaissance man. 

Benefits of Bridge Pose (Halasana)

Bridge Pose stimulates the abdominal organs and thyroid glands, which improves digestion and helps to regulate metabolism. Because it revitalizes the legs and stretches the shoulders, it can be a particularly rejuvenating pose for those who spend the day sitting in front of a computer or driving.

In recent years, more and more people around the world are discovering henna tattoo, an impermanent form of body art that may also be referred to as mehndi or mehandi. The term 'henna' refers to the henna plant, and the dye used in tattoos is created from the lawsome pigment within its leaves.

I love henna tattoos and get them for all the special Indian holidays, special dinners and yoga retreats.
