Weekend Link Love [on a Tuesday…] – 09.20.2011

Thank you for all the well wishes on my big announcement! Again, I can’t wait to share what I learn here on the blog.

Here are my belated weekend links:

Do you have any links of love?


This evening I took an advanced yoga class at my studio and it was great. I had one last night as well but tonight’s was one of the best classes I’ve ever taken. It was one of those nights where everyone was into it; everyone was breathing; everyone was sweating within the first five minutes. I pushed myself and managed to practice getting into poses that I don’t usually get to do in the regular classes. Like full pigeon! I didn’t even know it existed.


I’m thinking I might do a “pose of the week” feature here – this week’s pose (and by “pose of the week” I really just mean what pose I am into that day) has got to be Supta Baddha Konasana.

supta baddha konasana Weekend Link Love [on a Tuesday...] – 09.20.2011


It’s incredibly relaxing for your hips, if you can just let go. If you need extra support, use blankets like in the picture. It’s a good counter pose to bridge, and it’s perfect for leading into savasana.


Have a great night!

    Congrats on the yoga adventure!

    HEAB is my go-to blogger gal for recipes. I swear our tastebuds were separated at birth. Her sauces are awesome. I also love her hubby’s almond butter chili. Perhaps you can sub in meat-free crumbles or beans to keep it veggie? I highly recommend it!

      @Mimi: I actually eat meat these days, but I still haven’t tried her chili!! I will have to make that soon.

    Full Pigeon one of my favorites. Feels so good, and I hope you like the HEABLet bars. Heablet isn’t into them so much anymore. All she wants now are salmon cakes. :)

    Socca is awesome. I use Mark Bittman’s recipe. One warning: it tends to make a lot of smoke and EVERY TIME I make it, I set off my fire alarm.
