As the days continue to become colder as we move through the winter months, I truly believe that Restorative Yoga is the best practice for the winter months in order to slow down, rest and recover! I personally have found myself to be more focused and effective when I have a Restorative practice. So... we wanted to share with you a mini sequence that you can add to your days (even in the comfort of your own bed)!
What you Need:
Feel free to hold each pose anywhere from 5-20 minutes depending on how much time you have, and how you like the posture!
We have also linked an image to each posture for those that are more visual learners!
As you close your practice come to seated or laying on your back and check in with yourself. Scan through your whole body and check in on how each body part feels! Hopefully you feel a little more calm, relaxed and rejuvenated to continue on your day - or find some continued relaxation as you head to bed!
"Receive the breath, receive the weight of the body, receive the moment.
Give up ambition, give up movement, give up fear... and rest."
-Judith Hanson Lasater
We love to warm up over the winter, and this soup from 40 Aprons is AMAZING! Give it a try and warm up with us this January!
On the stove top....
Chocolate Chow Mein Clusters
Chocolate and peanuts are two of my favourite treats, and the combination in this recipe, along with butterscotch, gives this holiday treat a special flavour. My grandma - and my mom made these for Christmas every year, and this year I made a batch for myself and friends! They are so easy to do - and you can enjoy them anytime!
Make a batch - and let us know what you think!
