  1. Sadly school has taken up almost all my free time recently, but coming into the new year, these are some of the books I want to read/re-read: The Dinner by Herman Koch The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Gailbrath* / The Silkworm The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potsch Looking for Alaska by John Green Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahnuik The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi Durrow It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini*
  2. Oh, Childish Gambino and Incubus! I love listening to those artists, but I never thought of doing it while practicing yoga. Definitely! Metal is the jam for me usually, too! There is a specific "type" of yoga called BlackYoga, so if you haven't heard it yet, you should check it out. It's basically yoga set to nu-wave and ambient metal. I think it's pretty nifty because they have playlists all ready to listen to.
  3. I love coconut oil as well! I have not tried oil pulling, but it is something I keep coming around to, so I may give it a try soon. My favorite way to use coconut oil is as an eye makeup remover. I love that even if I get some on the rim of my eye it doesn't burn or hurt, and it removes even the toughest waterproof mascara! I rinse it all off and my eyes feel so supple and soft. Love, love it!
  4. Legs are feelin' like jelly today, but this is an oddly rewarding sensation! Can't say I'm not excited for the rest day tomorrow, though! ;)

  8. Hi Candace! I have been practicing yoga for about 2 years on/off and I my focus is currently on hip openers and low back stretches. I have been incorporating supta gomukhasana into my routine and have noticed that whenever I am in the pose my legs go numb. As soon as I release the pose it starts to subside. It's not always uncomfortable, but sometimes it can be. I was wondering if that is a "normal" thing that could happen (since the legs are essentially being squeezed together) and if not, is there a way to prevent it? Thanks so much!
  9. Hello all! This new year is starting off wonderfully, and I'm pumped to see my yoga practice improve. I chose to work on 3-legged dog, mostly because I need to work on core/back strength, and I have problems with my hips, so I feel that it's a pretty well-rounded choice to cover all those areas! I will be posting my "before" pose on insta and on my profile here as well. I have never participated in a challenge that had as much support as this one does! It scares me a little, and makes me want to be shy, but hopefully I can make the most of it. Cheers to the new year, and good luck to everyone.
  10. My name is Keeli Hinesley and I hail from the great state of Georgia! I have dipped my toes in the water, but I am excited to dive deep into the practice of yoga in 2015. There are great things in store for this year to come, and I want to take advantage of all that it offers me.
