3-Part Yoga Breath

We’ve been doing 3-Part Full Yoga Breath, Ujjayi Pranayama, at the beginning of class. Some of the benefits of this breath are:
Improves circulation and heart
Strengthens immunity
Increases stamina and lung capacity
Purifies your system
Helps soothe respiratory problems

This breath can be done throughout your day, and it is ok to do it while standing or sitting.


Miner’s Lettuce and Ladyfinger Dudleya

Miner’s Lettuce is both easy to grow and to harvest in the wild. It will be a delicious addition to your spring salads.

Also, Ladyfinger Dudleya is looking beautifully plump from our recent rains and is sending up new flower stalks. It can be eaten raw or lightly cooked. You can grow it in a container or in a dry shady or semi-shady area.

Both of these are available from Coastal Sage Gardening. (And they are offering free packets of seeds throughout the month of March.)
