General

There is always confusion between Sweet Potatoes and Yams. Which one is which?

Technically, both are Sweet Potatoes, but those with the orange flesh inside are typically referred to as Yams and those with whitish color inside are Sweet Potatoes.

I prefer Yams due to the fact that they are exceptionally high in Beta Carotene (Vitamin A). I like Yams because the darker color signifies more nutrients.

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.
