Back to Basics/ Fundamentals
New Date: Sunday May 19th
Where: Hot Box yoga
Time: 2-4 pm
This workshop is perfect for people who are new to the practice of yoga as well as for more seasoned students wanting to review the basics. During the 2 hours you will be taken through the foundational postures one at a time, while receiving alignment cues and hands on adjustments to help enhance your practice. Some partnering might be involved to help each student really experience these poses in a different way, however it is not required to bring a plus one.
Come and experience your yoga practice thru each poses by having the time to play with what feels right for your body in an atmosphere were your questions are encouraged and answered.
Emphasis on breathing exercises, postural alignment to avoid injury, hands on adjustments and anatomy of the joints to safely enter, transition and exit each pose.
Teacher: Gabriela Trujillo

It isn’t often that I write book reviews (have I ever? – serious question), but it isn’t often that a truly important book like Lierre Keith’s The Vegetarian Myth pops up on my radar just begging for one.
That goes double for vegans, vegetarians, or anyone on the cusp of adopting that lifestyle. If you fit the bill, especially if you’re considering veganism/vegetarianism for moral reasons, drop what you’re doing and run to the nearest bookstore to buy this book. It’s incredibly well-written, and the author has a real knack for engaging prose, but that’s not the main reason for my endorsement. The real draw is the dual (not dueling) narratives: the transformation of a physically broken moral vegetarian into a healthier moral meat eater; and the destructive force of industrial agriculture. The “Myth” in question is the widely-held notion that vegetarianism is the best thing for our health and for our planet. On the contrary, Keith asserts that a global shift toward vegetarianism would be the absolute worst move possible. It’s vitally important. It’s definitive. It’s somewhat depressing, and it’s brutally honest. It also might be the book that changes your life.
Lierre Keith is a former vegan/vegetarian who bowed out after twenty long years of poor health and paralyzing moral paradoxes. Her original goal was to explore the question, “Life or death?” as it pertained to food. She, like most vegetarians, assumed she had a choice between the two, that it was an either/or thing. Eating tofu and beans was life, while a burger represented death. Life didn’t have to involve death – that was the weak way out, and the honorable (and difficult, and therefore meaningful) way to live was by avoiding animal products of all kinds. No blood on your hands or on your plate meant a clean moral slate.
