  1. Hi all! How goes your program? I had to slow down for a couple of days due to a tedious upper back pain, but today I'm ready to start again :-) I think yoga for sciatica will be perfect!
  2. I've choosen one pose I hate (forward fold), because it's very unconfortable for me so I know I really need to work on it, and a pose I love, even if it's very challenging for me: king pidgeon
  3. Chest video done this morning! I'll do neck and shoulder poses when I'll be back home, I think they'll be a panacea to release tensions after my nine hours at the desk :-)
  4. Yeah, it's so good. My favorite is Earl Grey French Blue of Mariage Frères, a tea I received as a gift, really delicious. I have to order it somewhere! Another tea I like for breakfast, even if it's very different, is Genmaicha, a Japanese tea with toasted rice: its taste is reach and comforting, especially in winter.
  5. In rest days I've planned to do at least some harmstrings, back and shoulders stretches: they're very helpful for me to get through the day at the office
  6. OK, thanks! I'll use this ratio then
  7. I'm feeling a little ashamed, but I've just uploaded my photos. For this challenge I've choosen forward fold (the most unconfortable pose for me) and (future) king pidgeon. My practice today to warm up: 15 Minute Yoga for the Low Back & Legs and 15 Min Yoga for Chest and Shoulders. I think I'll need a lot of these in next weeks
  8. Wow! I've just tried brushing my teeth this way and it's great. Oil pulling itself makes smoother teeth, but this homemade toothpaste is fantastic, Is there a specific recipe? I've just mixed a half tsp of coconut oil with about the same quantity of backing soda. Tomorrow I'll try oil pulling with coconut oil, the taste is by far better than sesame
  9. Yes! I've started since a couple of months, using sesame oil. I'm not that devouted, but I try to do it at least 3-4 times a week.
  10. I have still to understand how will I take my pictures, but I'm so ready! Thank you so much for this plan, it's beautiful to know we're all together in this project, I can't wait for tomorrow.
  11. I'm late, but... happy birthday notlulamae!
  12. I like to add also cayenne or fresh ginger Here's a Matthew Kenney recipe I love: berries, frozen mango, young coconut meat, oranges juice, pinch of cayenne, pinch of sea salt
  13. I've started my day with a 20 minutes detox flow
  14. I'm a little bit uncertain about the pose, but I think I'll choose forward fold and I'll give a try to king pidgeon, too. I'm soooo excited about this challenge
  15. That's an awesome project Candace! I'm in, so happy and excited about it!
  16. I really like this one
  17. I really love tea, of course loose leaf, and my favourites are green, white and oolong teas. And pue-rh also, a latest discovery. I usually use a dedicated teapot for every kind of tea, to save its specific flavour, and measure temperature of water: I'm a sort of tea-maniac, indeed
  18. Pidgeon, half moon (a quite recent achievement!) and dancer's pose :-)
  19. I agree, proteins are very important in breakfast, I try to add some sources every day and I noticed this helps me coming to lunch time without starving! Something pretty different from typical Italian breakfast: cappucchino and croissant
  20. Maybe zucchini and pumpkin to start, anyway I think seasoning is the secret: in my oven version (even if almost burned!) beets were delicious, with extravergin olive oil, smoked paprika and some herbs.
  21. It's difficult to find something missing in your videos! Just a couple of ideas: a prerunning flow and a sequence to improve posture
  22. When I'll get mine one of the first things I'd like to prepare are vegetable chips, like kale, zucchini, pumpkin, beetroot. At a kitchen course I've seen some "dusts" made with ground dehydratated vegs and used to flavour and colour courses, it sounds interesting!
  23. I love breakfast! I start every morning with lemon juice and lukewarm water (before my yoga session) and then I try to change the meal every morning, here are my favourites: overnight raw porridges, homemade granola with yogurt or non dairy milk, soft boiled eggs, bread with olive oil, ricotta cheese and dukkah or zataar, avocado, pancakes, always a fresh fruit, some nuts and a cup of green tea.
  24. Yeah, you're right! I was thinking there was definitely something wrong with me! Of course there are many poses I cannot afford at the moment, like armstands, for example, but that one really frustrates me, and it isn't relaxing for sure
  25. Well, I'm not using that much those social (especially twitter), but here's my profiles
