What Do You Remember?
On Memorial Day we commemorate the men and women who have died in the line of duty for our country. While many of my grandparents and elders, who I hold in the highest regard, served our country, I do not have the direct experience of losing someone in the line of duty. Therefore, I broaden the scope of remembrance to the men and women who I have lost in my life.
Just as on Mother's Day, I commemorate MY mother, but also the many other women in my life who have given me guidance. These are the people who have inspired me to be a better woman, sister, wife, and friend. We remember people we have lost, but also what was special about them and try to bring that aspect forth. Who inspires YOU?
In Yoga, we commemorate our lineage of teachers - YOUR Teachers and Your TEACHER'S Teachers. How far back in your lineage can you trace? You may have many teachers to memorialize. Be grateful for what you have received and take time EVERY DAY to honor it.
One of my FIRST yoga teachers lives in Pokhara, NEPAL. When I studied with her, she introduced me to the concept of Karma Yoga and we practiced it every day. iHanuman continues to practice Karma Yoga through the sales of our Downloads. For the next 365 days, 5% of EVERY sale will be directed to one of our trusted non-profit organizations in Nepal, The Seva Foundation.
Thank you for your continued support.

Spring Cleaning: Liver and Gallbladder
Have You Eaten Your Greens?: Spring surrounds us for a little while longer with the turbulence of its season. In the southeast, we have had extreme temperature fluctuations with wind and rain, but everything is growing green everywhere. Indulge in the abundance of this season and eat a plethora of green leafy vegetables. Whether it is the dandelion leaves, chickweed, violets or spring onions in your yard or the green lettuces and mustards at your local farmer's market, green leafy vegetables cleanse and alkalinize the blood and provide the fiber to gently scrub out your digestive track. Soon it will be too hot for those vegetables to grow so take advantage of their natural abundance now!
