Bikram: Lock The Knee

Bikram yoga. Have you ever tried it?
It's a type of yoga that was developed by Bikram Choudhury in the early 70's. Classes run exactly 90 minutes and consist of a set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. The room is heated to approximately 105°F with 40% humidity. It's the original hot yoga. :)
I started my practice at Maine Bikram Yoga January 2010 and instantly fell in love with it. 

Last June I completed a 60 day challenge and I have to tell you...I felt amazing! Sadly, my practice has fallen apart over the last year. A lot of personal stuff got in the way of making it to class and honestly even if I did manage to get myself to the studio, I spent most of the 90 minute class stuck in my head. Not the best place to be sometimes, right? 

But just like my girl Nina Simone says "It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me ooooooooh
and I'm feeling good"  A few weeks ago the owners/teachers at my yoga studio asked me if I would like to watch the kids class on Saturday mornings. The trade-off? FREE YOGA!
An unlimited monthly membership can be kind of spendy (especially for a newly single mom like me) so this seems like the perfect opportunity for me to get back on the mat. :) 

Feeling Good

birds flying high
you know how I feel
sun in the sky
you know how I feel
reeds drifting on by
you know how I feel
it's a new dawn
it's a new day
it's a new life for me
and I'm feeling good ....

Mr. & Mrs. Kate Moss

I have a SERIOUS crush on Kate Moss' wedding dress.
dress by John Galliano

suit by Yves Saint Laurent
Isn't is lovely? It was designed by John Galliano and said to be inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald
I think it's the perfect combination of simple and special. 

Kate married longtime boyfriend, The Kills frontman, Jamie Hince on Friday, July 1st.

Photographs taken by Mario Testino will be featured in the September issue of Vogue.  More wedding deets available here.

I love this idea! The online boutique Totokaelo offers a hand picked selection of clothes & accessories from both young and established designers AND they also host a private online community.

Here are some of my picks ...

So through Totokaelo, you have access to people who share an interest in the same designers. If you’re wondering how a particular item fits, looking for new music, or need a hotel recommendation for an upcoming trip, you can turn to a community with similar tastes to your own. Brillz!
