March Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

March’s pose is Peacock Pose as shown here by Bae.

Monty suggests combining this pose with Child’s Pose.

Upon release from Peacock Pose bring yourself into table top or sitting on your heels with knees hip distance apart.  From table top sink back onto your heels, or from kneeling fold forward, both ending with your torso on your thighs.  Do not let the back of your neck compress as you reach forward with your arms, palms facing down.  Broaden upper back and release all tension with deep breathing.  Rest in this pose as long as you want.  To release you can either walk your hands up to seated or table top or gently roll to one side and come to seated.

Here is Peacock Pose done by a human and Child’s Pose.

Mom and her friends who practice Yoga together are not able to do Peacock Pose yet but they all do a mean Child’s Pose!

February Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

image

February’s pose is Warrior I Pose as shown here by Yogi.

Monty suggests combining this pose with Mountain Pose and a pose he calls Blind Dog’s Swaying Mountain Pose or another slightly more challenging pose he calls Blind Dog’s Swaying Tree Pose.

image

Blind Dog’s Swaying Mountain Pose:  From Warrior I step into Mountain Pose, close your eyes and move your breath and your focus to your feet.  Begin to gently sway in very small movements, take notice of your balance and feel the shifting of your weight in your feet as you sway.  Keep movements small.  Open your eyes and step alternate leg back into Warrior I.

Blind Dog’s Swaying Tree Pose:  From Warrior I step into Mountain Pose.  Shift weight into left leg and move into Tree Pose keeping the ball of the right foot on the ground.  Close your eyes and sway as if in a gentle breeze.  Keep movements small.  Open your eyes and move into Mountain Pose.  Shift weight to right leg and move into Tree Pose keeping the ball of the left foot on the ground.  Close your eyes and sway in the gentle breeze.  Open your eyes and move into Mountain Pose and when ready step alternate leg back into Warrior I.

Aids in balance, my Mom and her friend practice simple standing poses with their eyes closed and are now able to catch themselves when slipping on ice.  Decreases those nasty winter falls.

January Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

image

Easy crossed leg pose.

Monty suggests combining with stomach grinds.

image

Place one hand on each knee.  Gently engage core.  Make a small slow steady circle around your center with your belly button or top of head.  Focus on steady breath.  After a minute switch directions (clockwise and counterclockwise).  Then switch your legs (other leg on top) and repeat.

May aid in digestion and realign organs in your core, great for circulation too!

Making dog food tonight

Ground bison and wild Atlantic salmon.
imageFree range chicken cooked in the pressure cooker until the bones were soft  and safe for my doggies to eat, about one and half hours.

image

Organic carrots kale and spinach and fresh peaches from the Western Slope of Colorado.
imageBrown rice, red rice and amaranth grain.

Oops, forgot to take a picture of some eggs I scrambled and added and oatmeal soak up some of the excess liquid.

Whew!  I think I have time for peanut butter jelly sandwich and a glass of wine, yay!

Stocking up for our Nephews (and Mom’s bad Math)

Hi, Rommy, Roscoe and Monty here, regular guest bloggers on sanseilife.

Our story? Our sister Haley, her husband Matt, and their three kids Buster, Remmy and Ranger are coming for a visit!

Haley and Matt are humans but thank goodness their kids are canines!

Mom is stocking up with food for us.    She’s going to have to go back to the store again because this is not clearly not enough.

She also has a problem with math.  Two boxes of dog treats at 20 pounds each, do you see the problem here?

Well the canines out there will  be able to figure it out quickly but for you humans we will have to spell it out.

Six doggies divided into 40 pounds of dog treats does not come out to and easily calculated division.

We clearly need 20 more pounds of dog treats!

60 pounds of dog treats divided by six dogs equals 10 pounds of dog treats per dog, a very easily calculated division of treats.

Sigh, poor Mom, she is soooooo mentally challenged.

Our story? We have a secret dog toy stash! Well we guess since we blogged about it it’s not a secret anymore is it?

Our sister Haley, her husband Matt, and their three kids Buster, Remmy and Ranger are coming for a visit!

We want our nephews to have a great time so we are collecting toys in anticipation of their visit.
