We hope you arrived home safe and sound with a few new ideas on how to improve your health. Below you will find our literature again as well as some new stuff to support the classes and knowledge that ultimately we learned from others and merely passed on. Remember that in the quest for a healthier life there are no principles (#1) and our recommendations are only just that, recommendations. Ultimately your body will always have the best answer. Observe it and care for it. It’s your best friend.
If you have questions please let us know. Sometimes our recommendations sink in and questions arises with time. We are happy to help as much as we can, by email, chats and booked Skype calls at cristina.olive.retreat.
Also…We love hearing from you, see how you are doing, whether you follow our recommendations or not, we always care and appreciate your choices and how you chose to live this amazing thing we call life, a miracle (⌗3) and a process (⌗2).

Ashtanga Yoga Book
The Asanas described step by step in this book are for your technique and the study of Yoga, but remember that Yoga (like anything else) is about your practice. All practice is better than no practice and it's not about a perfect postures, it's what happens in you aiming and trying to get there. So rather than reaching your toes, feel what happens on your way there.
Vegan Kitchen Pantry List
Use your creativity to find the combos you like. If you combine - grains/beans/rice - you are more than safe on the amino acid (protein) intake.
Nuts and seeds for the fats and for more protein. Have some raw (green leaves is a must) and some cooked veggies, fruits, and don't forget the spices and herbs that I call medicine, for the micro nutrients. Concentrate on the micro-nutrients, we seldom get to little of the macros.
Here are the Pranayamas you learned (I know, the picture is lousy, but believe me, it’s better than a video of me doing them ;).
The numbers in the image correspond to the maximum amount of breaths you do when you have practiced for a while.
To start with you do as many as you have time for and feel good doing to.
It's always better to do something than nothing. These amazing breathing techniques are taught by many great schools.
Your body is your best friend, so get to know it again and love it. It always pardons you and as soon as you take care of this best friend, you will discover it is the best doctor and pharmacy available to heal you.
Good luck, take great care and hopefully our paths will cross again in another amazing cycle of Karmentum before they spiral away into other's paths on its journey through the universe.
Always here for you
