How are you doing today?  I’ve had a great, and busy, day.  Yoga as I mentioned I would be doing which was lovely.  Then, hung out with Scott and Skylar.  And, I worked on addressing my holiday cards that arrived.  They turned out great and it’s fun for me to send them out.  If there is ever an age to capture that Holiday Photo Card Magic, it’s when your kiddo is little.  I would have regretted not doing them, and even though it was a little last-minutey, it all worked outCool!

I also received my business cards that I ordered.

They turned out really nice, and captured the earthy but professional yogini vibe I was hoping for, and I’m really pleased!  Namaste for good Yoga Business Cards Karma!  Because you never know what you’re going to get with mail-order, ya know?

Yoga Today is Ardha Sirasana (Half Headstand).  Go into full headstand and then carefully lower so that your legs are parallel with the floorAbs anyone?  Holding your legs 90 degrees from your body while fighting gravity is a sure-fire way to help increase your core strength.  Core strength is so important for everything from balance to remaining injury-free and as a benefit, your abs will look better.

And please, when going up into headstand, DO NOT DONKEY KICK UP!   You need to go up slowly and with control; start in downward dog, make a crown for your head with your hands, and start to walk your toes forward, forward, til you go up, up, and away.  No kicking up into headstand as it’s a sure-fire way to fall and get injured, severely.

Have you ever injured yourself doing something athletically that you knew you probably shouldn’t be doing, and didn’t listen to that little voice inside your head, and then ended up hurt?  Or have you ever just had a random sports-related injury?  How did it happen?  How did you rehab back or get back into shape?

For me, I have had so many injuries; everything from two knee surgeries from high school basketball related injuries to overstretching my hamstrings when I knew I wasn’t warm enough in yoga and then paying the price with little twinges for the next few months.  Listening to my body, respecting my limits, and knowing when to say when are so important!  Any injuries to report or better yet, and healing-yourself-success stories out there?

Stay Tuned For Raw Vegan Gingerbread.  I’ve been holding onto this recipe for about 6 weeks and tomorrow, it’s yours…
