GOT MILK?

There are a multitude of rationalizations the mind will concoct to continue with horrible lifestyle habits. Milk – whether it is raw and/or natural, comes from grass fed cows or organic – is created to support the body of calves, not human babies or human adults. Just because some groups of people in Africa adopted a reliance on the milk of a cow because they were confronted with hardship and lack of choices in their environment, doesn’t mean the practice should be continued in 2016.All milk contains queso-morphines that, as the name implies, are addictive.

The function of chronological time is not to allow you to age and deteriorate.

You will gain ability and flexibility as you practice. You don’t have to feel embarrassed because you “can’t” do a particular technique. Whatever you can do will improve your life and might save you from that heart attack, stroke or cancer that you are more likely to die prematurely from if you do not make at least small changes.

Why do we practice Rule of Four Breathing? Because it is in complete alignment with the way that energy moves in the body.• The power in the practice of Yoga is rooted in the movement of energy, life-force, Ankh, Shu, etc., through the energy channels of the body.• Every other aspect of the practice is subordinate to the movement and circulation of energy.• In fact your ability to simply live is dependent upon the continued flow of energy. Neither your heart, lungs, nerves, endocrine system, liver nor anything else will not operate without the presence of life-force that is generated by the breath.• Your ability to be healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually is dependent upon the quality of the precis...
