General

Elderberry is more popular in Europe especially in places like Austria, Germany and Switzerland. But elderberries can be found throughout Europe and even into the Middle East. Elderberries have played a significant role throughout the ages in folk medicine especially when it comes to cleansing the body. Hippocrates, the "father of medicine", said the elder tree is a "medicine chest".

Elderberries have a naturally rich purple color, and like other berries, their rich color is an indicator of the nutritional benefits they can provide our bodies.

Depending on where you live in the world, this berry may or may not be available to you as it is not readily found in most grocery stores. If elderberries are something that interest you, then chances are you will probably most likely need to buy it in a supplement form from your local health food store.

Hatha Yoga

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.

Unlike flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.

Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.

If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.

Follow me on Facebook and watch my videos on YouTube.
