I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace.

This week I am in Madison–I have a few appointments and I am gathering a little research in the archives for the current chapter I am working on.  While I am here, I am keeping up my exercise and eating my favorite paleo-friendly foods!  For the third time in two weeks, I made Jicama Slaw!  LOL It is so yummy.  This time I added green and red peppers to this festival of flavors!  I am also getting really good at roasting chicken.  For some reason the thought of roasting an entire of chicken scared me a little bit.  Now, its no biggie.  And, each time I make one, it gets better and better!  Yesterday, I seasoned the chicken with garlic powder, pepper, and a little natural sea salt.  I popped it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 1 hour.  This yielded a really juicy, flavorful chicken.  So, for the next couple of days, I will be eating my roast chicken and jicama slaw! 

Ok, on to the real topic of this post: YOGA!

I am so excited that I am in town to take a yoga class with one of my favorite practitioners: Laura Flanagan.  Last summer before I moved back home to Chicago, I took a series of Body Rolling classes with Laura and they were excellent.  Body Rolling is a practice that elongates your muscles, giving you space between your bones so that you are less inflamed, less tense, etc.  I began Body Rolling to compensate for the toll that boot camp was taking on my joints and muscles.  All I can say is that if you are doing rigourous, heavy working out, Body Rolling is an excellent addition to your regime.  And, Laura is a wonderful teacher.  Her spirit and energy is divine.  Check out her schedule to try out Body Rolling.

So, tonight, I am going to Yoga at 7pm.  I am really excited and looking forward to the space of meditation that practicing yoga provides.  After I took my first yoga class with Laura last summer, I promised that I would begin my own yoga practice.  After reading Eat, Pray, Love, I was even more committed, but unfortunately, I did not start my own practice because it was difficult to find a “Laura” in Chicago!  Now that I am moving back to Madison, I am so excited about continuing with Laura.

Namaste:
The Divine in me recognizes and honors, the Divine in you.
The spirit within me bows to the spirit within you.
I greet that place where you and I are one.
I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace.

  1. I was thinking this week that fresh radishes would make a nice addition to the slaw. Try it. Body rolling…I will look into it. Enjoy your stay in Madison!

  2. ummm… i miss madison? i can’t believe i’m saying that, but you’re post definitely made me think that. (had to do a double take…) it’s a great city to find “laura”s and other great classes for the “mody” (that’s mind & body). :)
