We’ve all been there, especially when we first began practicing yoga. You’re in a packed vinyasa flow class and you’re feeling all but present. Instead of focusing on your breath and postures, you find yourself sneakily checking out your peers form and getting caught up in the dangerous game of comparison.
To set the scene: You’ve just broken a healthy sweat at your favourite weekly Pilates class and your body is practically begging you for some sustenance to replace all the calories you just burned.
Well, I’ve got the perfect vegan smoothie recipe to ease your post-Pilates hunger pangs. It’s packed with protein, healthy fats, and minerals, so that you’ll certainly be satiated once you’ve had your first glass!
When my students arrive at yoga, I’ll typically ask them if they have any unique concerns that they would like me to focus on during the class. Unfortunately, back pain is all too common of a complaint reported to yoga teachers, and I hear it all the time.

This month’s vegan spotlight is all about the wondrous restaurant known as Live Organic Food Bar. With one location in the Annex, the other nestled in Liberty Village, and a variety of freshly packaged products sold in downtown grocers – Live Organic Food Bar has effectively taken the city by storm.
