I can’t believe it has been 6 months since I started making webshows (here is a link to see all of them)!   I have learned so much about videography (which is all because of my fantastic video editor) and have come a long way since my very first one, that I filmed on my iphone in my bathroom!  I still have a long way to go to get to where I would like to be.  You can follow me on YouTube to see all my webshows and other videos.

Anyhoo, so this episode is about the yogic squat and how to get your garden ready for the next growing season, which if you are in the southeast it is RIGHT NOW.

In my opinion, it is one of the most simple and powerful yoga poses for women.  It’s for women of all life stages, whether you are a child, young girl, trying to conceive, pregnant, postpartum, peri-menpausal or menopausal.

  • It strengthens your pelvic floor and all the ligaments that are in your pelvis, oh you know, doing important things like holding up your uterus and ovaries!
  • It helps with digestion, by pressing on your descending colon (your thigh presses up against the sides of your tummy) and gently massages your entire digestion system with each outward breath.
  • It opens up your pelvis and increases circulation, which increases oxygen and blood flow helping to get nutrients to the area and toxins and junk out of the area.

As for getting your garden going this segment is all about what to do once you actually have your garden bed set up.  How to amend and protect the soil, keep weeds at bay and set up rows.

And don’t forget to check out my gardening calendar free printable.  It will tell you when and what to plant to have the most success in your garden.   The garden section in the M+BL archives are also full of tons of helpful tips, so be sure to check those out too.
