[Recipe] "Perfect for Valentine's Day" Smoothie

These beauties are from Iowa.

In time, learned about The Nourish to Flourish Society and experienced the Reset firsthand and ended up sharing her experience with Jaime...who became a Resetter...who ended up sharing this experience with Kim...who is also now a Resetter.

Did you get all that? 

In our language, we call it the Ripple Effect. You have a positive experience. It changes you. You share your experience with others. It changes them. It spreads and spreads and spreads.

In the hour and 15 minute class you might do only 4 resting poses, which means that once you settle in, you stay there for a bit and focus on centering breath. (or start snoring like I did last time I went - but that's another story for another day...)

Something the teacher said in one of my classes was so simple and profound. As she was telling us how to use the props to get into the pose she kept repeating:

How's your New Year Resolution going?

Do you find that the 'magic' of January 1 wears off pretty quickly? It never seems to be too long after those New Year's Eve bubbles have fizzled out and the after-party glitter has been cleaned up, that our best-of-intentions New Year's resolutions fade.  

It's not because we have a lack of willpower or because we aren't awesome women; it's just that while making a resolution may light you up, that
