It seems as we age, changes occur in our bodies. When I was young, I was one of those people who could eat anything they like, and never gain an ounce. Then I hit 30, had my youngest son, and soon I was gaining weight every year. By the time I hit 45 I had gained at least 20 pounds. I was reading a Canadian Living Magazine the other day, and the article stated that most women loose 10% of their muscle mass every decade after they turn 40. Well I believe it. When I couldn’t stand how I looked anymore, I joined weight watchers and lost 20 lbs, but it is a constant struggle to keep the weight off.
Also, as I have aged, my body aches in places that it never used to. Getting older sucks or does it. A couple of months ago, one of my good friends asked me to go to Hot Yoga with her. I didn’t really know what Hot Yoga was, but thought sure, I’ll try it. It was intense, and I didn’t think I would make it through the class, but I did, and I felt so….good after doing it. The room is hot, about 105 F, so you sweat, sweat and sweat, but this is so your body is warm and your muscles can stretch without hurting. Since then I have gone twice a week, and will continue to do so. I can sleep through the night, without any aches or pains. I have lost a little weight, but also I’m toning up, which is great. Women and Men from all ages and all sizes attend the Hot Yoga I go to. If you would like to learn more about Hot Yoga here is the link to the class I attend in Abbotsford. You should try it, you might like it!

Another new soap on our website. Acai Berry Gourmet Soap. Our nearly natural gourmet soap combines the sweet mixture of succulent Acai Berries straight from the Amazon, with top notes of raspberry, strawberry, pear and sweet pineapple. Heart notes of classic jasmine, carnation, gardenia and peach mingles with a whisper of musk at the base of the fragrance. Enriched with Shea Butter makes this soap a luxury to use.
