Yoga is one of the best things you can possibly do for your body. Regular yoga practice can positively affect digestion, circulation, respiration and lung capacity, heart health, posture and core strength, bone density, body composition, and joint health and flexibility; it can help the body process toxins out of its systems; it can promote regular appetite and sleep rhythms; it can improve mental health, neurological function and focus; and it can help relieve chronic pain. Best of all, a yoga practice can be modified to benefit any individual body and any range of abilities. Although there’s no such thing as a true cure-all, yoga is possibly one of the best ways we can get close to it. This month’s giveaway features yoga gear to help someone find their flow!

  • One Zenergy yoga mat with harness, gray.
  • One YogaPulse DVD box set. (Disclaimer: Please be advised that this box set does offer “yoga for weight loss”. While I do not support weight loss as a primary goal and therefore would not subscribe to this yoga philosophy, I am still going to pass this product along because I have no reason to keep it.)

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh. More than 1,100 people were killed. As detailed in this story, some progress has been made in improving conditions for Bangladeshi factory workers, but there is still a long way to go, particularly as large American retailers like Target and Wal-Mart haven’t signed on to the international inspection agreement. (They say they’re doing their own inspections.)
The victims’ fund also remains critically underfunded as many brands that bought clothes from the factory—including JC Penney and Benetton—have failed to make contributions.

So I’m sitting here reading this with my roommates and I’m just laughing because someone actually believes this is true when one of them says
"I hope he drowns in period blood."

TINY TURTLE INVESTIGATORS: THE CASE OF THE LARGE STRAWBERRY

Are there things you see in characters that you just say, “Uh, not for me.” ?

“Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.”
