Friends, yoga, and food

March 24, 2010

After my rough day a few days ago I vented a little to one of my best friends before I went to sleep. It’s good to get things off your chest and tell someone who knows what you’re going through and can be there for endless support. I went to bed and things turned around the next day. When I came home during my lunch break I saw a bouquet of flowers at the door. My best friend Ali had them delivered to me the very next day.


Her card read “Wanted to send a little sunshine your way”.

It’s friends like these that make the world go around. Reaching out to a loved one when they need it and showing that you care. I don’t know where i’d be without my girls and I know that i’m extremely lucky to have such a great group of friends. Love you Ali, you have no idea how much you touched my heart.

My good friend and yoga teacher Camille is hosting another day retreat on May 1. It consists of 2 yoga classes, one hard class ( you won’t believe how sore you’ll be after), a vegetarian lunch, and a yin yoga class accompanied by a live musician.

Camille asked me if I’d like to do a food workshop after lunch and before the yin yoga class. She said she could give me a half hour to do/say whatever i’d like. I’m stumped. I’m not sure exactly what i’d like to do, or what would even interest people. If any of you lovely readers have any suggestions or ideas for me i’d really appreciate all your help. I’m thinking about showing them how to make green smoothies? Show them some of my favorite healthy eats and how to incorporate them into your diet? I love that Camille has asked me to be a part of her workshop and am excited that i’ll get to share with others what has worked for me and what I am passionate about.

If you are a Baltimore local, or live close I highly recommend going to her retreat. She’s amazing. I’ll be designing her flyers so i’ll let you know when there’s additional information.

    You’re right- friends as special as your friend Ali truly do make the world go around! I hope you are having a better day today!

    The flowers are so sweet.

    Maybe do something on quick and easy healthy meals. I know that a lot of people will go to a fast food restaurant or whatever because it’s easier. Although, people attending a yoga workshop probably wouldn’t do that.

    It’s absolutely amazing when friends do something special for you like that – how sweet! Also, I am definitely interested in yoga retreat on May 1st. Keep me posted. As for the food workshop, maybe you can pick 4- 5 healthy, easy items that we could all incorporate into our diets for a healthier diet. LOVE the green smoothie idea because every single person wrinkles their nose when I tell them there is spinach in it. BUT, everyone who has tried it, loves it!

    Wow!! How you got that partners yoga picture i don’t know, but i had NO idea you could do partners yoga!!!! How fabulous.

    What a fabulous opportunity to speak at a yoga retreat. I think you’d do AWESOME. Definitely show ’em green smoothies and talk about how they’re good for your health! Win ’em over with some of the dishes you’ve created and how you strive to maintain balance in life/through blogging/eating/yoga! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ll charm ’em all girlie, i know it!!

    That’s awesome that you’ll be a part of the retreat! I think chatting about the green smoothies is a good idea. I drink one everyday and love it!

    It’s so awesome to have friends like that in your life. The yoga retreat sounds cool. I can truly say that I have never done yoga before. I think it’s time I give it a try.
