Yoga is a great complement to any runners’ regular routine. Regular running will create tightness in some areas of the body and leave other areas relatively week. Yoga can help to loosen out those tight spots and strengthen weak muscles – making you a better less injury prone runner.
Studies have shown that yoga reduces stress, improves strength and flexibility, eases pain, helps people to stick to an exercise routine and even improves running times. Below are some of the key benefits that runners can expect to experience.

6 Ways Yoga Benefits Runners

  1. Improves strength and efficiency – Builds strength evenly in muscles, joints and ligaments. Strengthening the core will help to improve the power you receive from each stride as your foot strikes the ground meaning that you will get more bang for your buck. Who doesn’t want that!
  2. Helps prevent injuries – Helps prevent injury by increasing flexibility…

Rewarding you for Referrals

Alexis Chateau

When I first started out in 2006, virtually all my business came from referrals. And I’m honoured to see colleagues and clients following that same path, more than a decade later. In fact, I’d like to reward all of you who continue to refer me, for all the hard work!

5% of Sales

This year, I’m repaying you with 5% of all income received from the clients you refer to me. This repayment will continue for the entire duration of that client’s work relationship with Alexis Chateau PR, even if you part ways with the firm.

So how does it work??

The Process

There’s no formal sales process involved. You don’t need a special link or code on your website; you don’t need to tackle long signup forms on ours; and you definitely don’t need to be an existing client.

Simply spread the word, in person, on social media……

On Muslim Women’s Day, let’s just remember they’re human too.

Thoughts everyone should read before saying all Muslim women are oppressed

Zen Scribbles

So apparently today is the first Muslim Women’s Day ever. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that until I clicked on the trending hashtag on Twitter, and then I was promptly disgusted. There are so many misconceptions, so many views depicting Muslim women as beaten-down creatures that are basically slaves to men, so much sarcasm about how it’s sooooo great to be a Muslim woman on this day.

As a Muslim woman, I have a few things to say. This rant bubbling inside me just won’t die.

I’ve never spoken about my religion on this blog, mainly because I like to keep my religious and political views out of my writing and “public persona”, but here goes nothing.

There was never a time when I wasn’t a Muslim. My parents are devout Muslims, and I grew up in a conservative household. I wore my hijab at the age of 9…

Rescued.

A beautiful story..worth reading!!

oh, darling soul.

Sunday was a beautiful spring day here.  I opened all of the windows in my house to release some of the stagnant energy and to let the sunshine in.  My two cats were curled up on the sofa in a sunbeam that had entered through the front door.  Everyone that has cats know how they love lazing about in sunbeams!  Odin had been scrapping with a neighbourhood cat and had received a scratch to his nose, so after all of that excitement he had got himself comfy on the sofa for the rest of the afternoon.  Freya lay curled up next to him but she was on alert.  She could hear all of the birds twittering away and it held her interest for quite a while.  I sat for 10 minutes or so just watching these two,and every day I am reminded how they saved my life.

This year it will…

The average consumer bases their health treatments ENTIRELY on their family physician’s recommendations. Whether these doctors are medical physicians, chiropractic physicians, naturopathic physicians or osteopathic physicians their is GOOD REASON to question the wisdom in this accepted practice. First, I truly believe most doctors (in every discipline) perform their services with the BEST INTENTIONS. Unfortunately, doctors (because of busy schedules) rely on research and information provided them. They assume this information is credible and honest and, in turn, follow the protocols established by their guidelines. The consumer then follows their doctor’s instructions believing their knowledge accurately addresses their health needs. The problem with this hierarchy of TRUST includes:

  1. the limited TRANSPARENCY of disclosure

  2. the limited (if not absent)  INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS.

The Rant I Promised You

HarsH ReaLiTy

Disclaimer: Language & Opinion

They say to never write in anger. They say “professional bloggers” leave passion at home. Well if anything this proves I am not a professional blogger and will probably never be a professional writer. I am writing this while angry.

This morning I shared this link https://www.yahoo.com/news/adopted-3-brought-us-korean-man-deported-222504748.html about a South Korean that was adopted as a child, abandoned again, separated from his sister, and then was incarcerated as an illegal immigrant once he applied for a green card. I then made the mistake we as social media users should know not to make. I read the fucking comments in the yahoo article and my blood pressure soared to heights unknown. If there had been an app available for me to punch people through the internet in the balls I would have downloaded that shit immediately. Fuck humans can be stupid.

This comment really got me.
