General

Kumquats contain a lot of vitamin C, but 80% of the vitamin C in kumquats is actually found within the peel itself.

Kumquats are members of the citrus family which include oranges, limes, lemons, etc.

A kumquat is relatively small considering it is about the size of a cherry.

You can eat the whole kumquat although some people do not like the seeds.

The kumquat growing season is from November until March.

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.
