Detox and Diet


Well a month ago I did mention to you that Fall is the optimal time for detoxification.
Preparing for a seasonal change can also be a fun way to de-clutter your pantry of all the extra canned goods or bygo side dishes you bought but never cooked. There are many needy food banks that will gladly take your donations especially for the holidays.

Today was a beautiful October Sunday crisp fall air and the warmth of the beautiful sun all around us.
I also promised last month that we would get more into Vinyasa Power yoga for the new season.
I took time today to challenge myself in a Power yoga sequence that I will share with you.
Please note this is NOT for beginners. My beginners continue to follow your yoga basic routines throughout October.

Body detox is a great way to purify for the introduction to winter months. My husband and I found this inexpensive awesome day spa (actually opens at 12 noon -11 p.m.) and this spa has Turkish and Swedish baths.
The rates are not expensive $35 per person for the entire time they are open that day,include gym, pool and beach use. You can return throughout the day if you decide to journey off for awhile, but you probably would want a room upstairs for the best relaxing stay $99 per night plus $15 Vallet parking, a great price on a weekend in Miami only 20 minutes from Sobe can someone spell D E A L? Especially if you are a Floridian. But no matter mark it on your bucket list if your an out of towner cause it’s a definite must do when visiting Miami Beach Florida. The Castle Beach Resort in North Miami Beach has this in it’s basement:Attraction_Review-g34439-d1569839-Reviews-Russian_and_Turkish_Baths-Miami_Beach_Florida.html

Now for a sensitive topic, Fish, how much is too much, to eat or not to eat, the experts at Havard join in:index.html

Me personally being a Kat and all I eat at least 3 cans of light chunk tuna packed in water a week.



Hobbies are good for the soul try Karma yoga today!


Hi everyone,
I wanted to share with you my contest entry for Greenleaf Dollhouse 2012 contest. This is “Kitty West” my very first dollhouse. I always had a love of all things miniature and wanted to to do a hobby that involved the practice of Karma Yoga. When I make my dollhouses they will be given to children/charity. I will keep this one in my office as a reminder that with faith and perseverance all things are possible.

Going forward after I make a dollhouse I will be donating them to children awaiting adoption through a society in Central Florida. My heart goes out to each child waiting for a “forever home” and I feel this a way to wrap my love around them and let them enjoy something made special just for them. I will be making them for boys and girls all different types.

This house was named “Kitty West” based on the architecture of the typical old school shotgun style Florida Cracker house found in Key West. After living in Key West for a year I just envisioned this project when I started out from bare wood.

Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), or the “discipline of action” is a form of yoga based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, karma yoga is the process of achieving perfection in action. Karma yoga is an intrinsic part of many derivative types of yoga, such as Natya Yoga. Karma yoga is often understood as a yoga of selfless (altruistic) service.
We are all capable of some talent whether small or large that can be of use to others. I encourage you to reach within and find your potential and do good for those around you.
