Basil can be bought from your local grocery store, usually in plastic contains to keep the Basil fresh. But you can also grow Basil yourself.
Due to the fact that Basil is a green juice, you will find it beneficial to have no more than about ¼ of your juice consisting of green juice.
I enjoy adding a few leaves of fresh Basil every now and then to my juice. I like to wrap the Basil leaves in another leaf to help the juicer extract the juice more easily.

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.
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.
