YOGA BEYOND WORDS with Cara-Lynne 
Kiss and Tell...
Remember the days when the words Office Christmas Party were synonymous with awkward gift exchanges, loosened inhibitions and sometimes surprising romantic trysts that lead to water cooler gossip.

*Oh, how I miss you Dunder Mifflen

Nowadays, the water cooler is the world wide web.  Every day the world gets smaller and smaller.  Social media is abundant in our lives.  You can literally post your life events (big and small) on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat instantly.  And then they are out there...

TEA TIDBITS with Tea by G

This month's tea tidbit spotlights the Japanese tea  Genmaicha !

The 'G' is pronounced like the 'g' in 'Goat'.  Also known as 'roasted rice tea' or 'popcorn tea', it is a blend of green tea with roasted rice.  The roasted rice adds a  nutty flavour to the liquor and was originally drunk by the poorer populations of Japan.  The rice was used as a filler to bring down the price of the tea, making it the 'people's tea'.  Sometimes you will see the odd rice has popped, giving it that 'popcorn' look.

As with most Chinese and some Japanese tea, there is always a legend attached.  I love this part about tea!...
