          What a great video from Andrea Potter. I used to eat kitchari all the time. Yum I forgot how much I loved it. NZ is heading into autumn. I might try a kitchari cleanse in the winter. Sounds really nourishing.

              Ryan Leier is amazing. I have no idea how he did that with his stomach.

              • I agree! I want to try it!

                Hi, I am on Day 10 of a 20 Day Juice fast and thought adding the Yoga Detox challenge would be a nice way to finish off the second half of the cleanse.

                • Hi @Majulily
                  Sounds interesting. As long as it feels right for your body!

                  I am doing this challenge because I am writing an assignment on insomina and I want to gently adjust my sleep cycles to improve my energy levels and help me get up earlier so I can have a daily practice of yoga in the mornings. I live in a busy household and early, early morning (4-5am) is my only time to practice.

                      Uni is nearly finished for the year. Its my 7th year of fulltime study. I'm frazzled, tired and a little unmotivated to do ANYTHING. So I signed up for 3 programs. Sounds a little nuts? I'm doing an assignment on insomina and stress and your resources are really good. I also happen to need to improve my sleep. I love when there's a cross-over in personal goals and academic requirements- very efficient. Its also a good way to motivate me into increasing my training. I am still managing about 3 sessions of taiji each week and I am much less frazzled or tired since going vegan, 80% raw, organic wholefood and gluten free. I need some yoga.

                            Hi Juliette,
                            It's just that when I hear that someone is having extreme pain when bending forward even slightly it really concerns me! For those in this sort of circumstance I definitely hope for that person to be able to work with someone deeply qualified and hands on so that they can assess and modify safely as needed.
                            Hope that answers your question, and I hope you feel better!

                            I was down on myself for missing out on yoga practice. It can really get away from me. I have 3 days at uni where I leave home at 7.30am and get home at 8.30pm. Topped off with a young family and suddenly my health isn't pushed to the side, its actually completely disappeared from site. It was my husbands birthday, we are spring cleaning, there are assignments to do, lunches to make, small and frustratingly complex pirate ships to assemble....... hang on didn't I commit to practicing Yoga on a daily basis to help me with all this? Why are the words 'Yoga Challenge' dancing around the peripherals of my memory?

                            • Thanks Liliput. Its not a lack of others giving me space to practice, its me committing the space available to practice. There is always some reason not to train, the irony is training makes everything else easier. I was fighting my body clock and trying to impose my idea of when I should be training. 'A more spiritual time'. I wanted to train early in the morning before everyone gets up, except we get up at 6am. I was trying to make myself go to bed at 8pm which just isn't working so I could get up really early to train instead of just practicing at night before bed.

                            • Oh yes, that irony is almost torture, isn't it? :-) I tried to practice before the 6 AM wake-up too for a while. It ended up not working so great for my body, and I spent the whole time stressing about whether the kids would be up earlier than usual... I've had to juggle my practice time around quite a bit lately, but I'm enjoying needing to step out of my box a little with it. I hope you can find a solution that works for you... Namaste.

                              Ear ache. Gentle yoga seems to be helping. So is the hot water bottle I am about to make.

                                      Hard day for yoga practice. Really sore, very stiff. Lots of slow, gentle yoga and the spine exercise again.

                                          I need to upload a photo except there aren't many of me. I've lost 25kgs in the last 2 years and was really shy of the camera during that time. A picture of me in some awesome yoga pose is a long way off though.

                                          • Congratulations on your weight loss! Well done! I had the same problem with posting a photo - there are none of me. So I just took one with the computer the other day. I'd call it one more step for me being comfortable with who I am and where I'm at right now.

                                          • Hi liliput - Thanks, lots of weight loss really messed with my perception of self. I still hold up clothes and think they are too small only to find them too big on! I'll try the computer photo out tomorrow. It's a great idea.
