I had noticed, though not paid much attention to this new fashion trend for women -- no longer being pressured to look thin, but to have perfect cyborg bodies as if they were top athletes. Except that they're not. To me its just another form of INTENSE pressure and control directed at women by the media and even fostered and encouraged by other women who do it, under the guise that "I will become more physically powerful and sexually appealing".

I've found this, over time, to be incredibly accurate.
"Skin inflammation like acne or redness can be reflective of your internal health. Use this face mapping method to decode what may be going on inside your body."
It's the perfect time of year for healing yogi tea, made from scratch following the traditional ancient Ayeurvedic recipe. I love drinking it to wind down after yoga, or to just find a still center before bedtime. I can't get the ingredients out here on the island, so please make it and enjoy.

This is our temporary kitchen setup. Its such a cute little shack but its going to be torn down once the big one is complete so I wanted to capture it for posterity.

I really love this quote! I stumbled on it while looking for a talented Thai Yoga Massage therapist in Boulder.
I just realised right now, after reading this how much I love my body. Finally. It's not perfect by any stretch of the media's imagination, but its mine, it's taken me all over the world, its allowed me to embrace some truly incredible human beings and it allows me the full range of intense sensations that make me feel like I'm burning with life all the time. It took me a long time to get to this point of loving my outer shell, even liking it. For 10 years, after a disturbance during my teens, I felt completely disconnected from it, most places I lived I didn't even own a mirror, and when I did see my reflection by accident, like washing my hands at a restaurant, it always surprised me that I had some sort of form... my face particularly was odd to look at...
