FITNESS 4 LIFE

Get rid of the all or nothing attitude.  How many times have you started a new diet, a new exercise program, or attempted to learn a new skill just to give it up a week later?

Recipe:

1 tbsp of organic coconut oil

1 tbsp of grass-fed butter

YOGA-MIND BODY SOUL

 

Triangle Pose and Extended Side Angle- (two of my favorite poses)

It’s amazing that no matter how many times you practice yoga it continues to be a challenge. It never gets easy.

It will be one of the best decisions you ever make 🙂
