Hello love :) I actually have no idea what the crust is made of, it was from a local restaurant and they don’t list the ingredients on the menu. The toppings: tomatoes, artichoke hearts, onions, mushrooms and basil.
I also want to try the gluten-free pizza at a restaurant down the street from me.. they use quinoa crust and I’ve heard great things!
Yes! At Zilker Botanical Garden
Both, simultaneously. My first ever yoga experience was in a class, but a lot of the more advanced poses were self-taught. I also read a few books to better understand the spiritual and anatomical aspects of yoga, which I found to be highly valuable to my practice as a whole.
I don’t have a ‘home’ studio at the moment, but I try to go to a local donation-based studio at least twice a week. When I can’t make it to a class, I use YogaGlo (and my space heater).
Youtube and YogaGlo are great resources for beginners. If that’s all you have available to you (whether because of financial or time constraints), then go for it!
What I recommend to my friends, though, is to first learn basic yoga poses using the Internet (YogaJournal, YogaGlo Beginner Center, Youtube ‘sun salutation’). Once you’re more familiar, go to a class and the teacher can adjust your body as needed.
In my opinion, that really is the best way because then you’re more prepared. I went to my first yoga class completely blind and I remember it being pretty intimidating.
I’ve been doing backbends since I was 11 (cheerleading), but I learned inversions only recently. Because I taught myself, it took a few months of trial and error to really get the hang of them.
If you’re interested in learning how to get upside down, I highly recommend that you find a workshop or an advanced yoga class where you can get one-on-one instruction from an experienced teacher. It’s really important to build a safe, solid foundation for your inversion practice.. and it’s hard to do so using only the Internet. (Though it is possible!). Here’s what happened in my case:
I just barely got my handstand down a couple of weeks ago. In the year that I’ve been practicing handstands, I could never seem to stay balanced and it drove me crazy! But after all of the frustration, I finally had a breakthrough. And guess where it happened… in yoga class. My teacher fixed my shoulders in downward facing dog and then told me to use the same positioning in a handstand, and that ONE piece of advice was all I needed.
Most corn pasta is gluten-free, but I prefer the following: quinoa, flax, or brown rice. I’ve compared nutrition labels and have found that these are usually superior to corn.
ALSO: You should always look for organic corn pasta, tortillas, etc.. because most (if not, all) conventional corn is genetically modified.
Yes yes, I would love to.. just need to learn a few things about making videos :)
