    Hi, I try to live as chemical free as I can and swear by a brand called Lily Lolo. They don't cost the earth and their products are good quality. I use their powder eyeshadow as a liquid liner (A-MAZING!) and their mineral foundation/blush. Their mascara isn't bad either!

    I know this is meant to be the place than men ask the questions but I'd like to ask a question to you men!
     
    How did you get into yoga? And what would you advise on how to get my other half to join in on a yoga session??!
     
    Feel free to ignore a woman trampling in your territory!

    Some ideas for getting your guy into yoga: 
     
    What's his resistance to it? If it's a "yoga is for women" response,  he may feel insecure about the setting, his body, or ability.  If he feels yoga will lower his status as a "man," then it's likely an ego issue, and introducing it in a non-public setting may be effective. The idea that yoga has anything to do with gender is strange and I'm curious if this mindset is shared outside of Western culture.
      Is he active in other areas? I love yoga and all of it's benefits, but even with that, I've struggled to do it consistently because of lifestyle choices. So if he's not already an active human, that could prove challenging.  A low impact meditation style practice would be a nice primer.   You could also offer to do something he’s interested in that you’ve been resistant to try.  That alone could open him up to the possibility of reciprocating.

    Thanks to those that recommended Orphan Black. I'm now addicted. Really intriguing
     
    Those who haven't watched Friday Night Lights should check it out. Yes it's set around American Football, but I'm not even a huge American football fan and love it!

    Haha. Thanks for all your advice guys! He's not big into sports, but used to play a lot of football and I think he'd really appreciate the discipline of yoga.
     
    Might start him on one of Candace's youtube videos and go from there.
     
    I'll let you know how I get on...

    I like my classes with a flow instead of stopping and starting. Drives me made to get into unrelated poses. Getting in a flow gets you nice and warm and transition from each pose into the next.
     
    I made the mistake of loving the sub teacher we had which killed of my love for the class I was doing. The sub only taught as back up and didn't teach anywhere else

    One of my favorites today - a new series called YBC Reader Yoga Journey. Today's is by Angie (I believe she is @angieeatspeace here on the forum). Today she shares her yoga journey, and how yoga helped her cope after her father tragically lost his life. Thank you so much for sharing, Angie. http://yogabycandace.com/blog/yoga-journey-how-yoga-helped-me-heal#disqus_thread
     
    PS - If any of you would like to share your yoga journey,

    notlulamae, I hope you're okay and that your injury isn't serious. Happy belated birthday!
     
    Mana, so happy and excited for you, woohoo! Keep up your awesome practice! =)
     
    I'm feeling okay today...just finished the yin yoga practice video. I used a rolled up fleece blanket and an even thicker fleece blanket as my bolster. I'm not sure if I got the full benefits of the practice because I felt a little lumpy in places. That's what I get for using two blankets I suppose haha.

    Hey everyone! I've had a busy birthday week visiting London and Amsterdam and am now home with some sort of knee injury... Not good. It's really bummed me out. I'm off to visit the doctors in a couple of days.
     
    Any advice?
