Vegan Mac 'n Cheese & Yoga Breath for Intuition
Being creative requires two essential components: curiosity and courage. Being curious stems from a desire to understand the world and to explore how it might be if you walked a different route to work one day, wore your hair up, instead of down or decided you'd throw some spicy peppers into that tried-and-true family recipe. You also need a bit of courage, because stepping outside of the box has the risk of failure built right into it. That's where developing your intuition through meditation can be applied to minimize risk, as you'll be more in the flow. The practice of yoga and specific pranayam (breathing exercises) can foster a clearer vision of who you are and the courage to express yourself in a creative and fulfilling life.
You're going to love this delicious (we've tried and love-love it) Gluten-Free Vegan Mac 'n Cheese that Melissa has cooked up, using the secret "cheesy" ingredient of nutritional yeast. But before you dig into that bowl of healthy comfort food, sit down for a few minutes to practice the "Two Stroke Breath for Stimulating the Pituitary" with Camilla. You'll be floating over to the table afterward, energized and ready to enjoy your meal.
