Hello everyone! I'm a passive vegetarian (meaning I'm not into the militant "everyone must be vegetarian" concept). I decided to become a vegtrian when I was 13. I love the feeling, the food, the reconnection to the earth it provides for me. Some of my favorite foods include rice noodle dishes, hemp shakes, fruits, tea, and green salads with cheese.



I've never been drawn to the vegan lifestyle personally, however i use only eggs produced by the wonderful chickens that reside in my backyard (the girls) and buy only organic dairy products and local honey.



My other interest include freelance art as well, of course, yoga. I embrace yoga as a personal lifestyle and greatly love it. In September I will be living in an Ashram for a month while I receive my teacher training certification.



I believe the body is a temple and therefore don't believe in weighing it down with animal flesh.



Love!

Welcome! I just noticed your signature... one of my co-workers had a bracelet with that inscription (in Sanskrit or Hindi characters).

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.

It's a fairly popular mantra and for good reason. It means "I honer the god within myself".

Awesome! What style of yoga will you be studying? I'm going to the Sivananda Ashram in Montreal for Sivananda style Hatha yoga. My own instructoer is Ashtanga trained however. I enjoy both practices. ^.^

Sounds cool! I'm into hatha and kundalini, though I don't have as much experience with kundalini as I'd like.
