3 Yoga Moves for a Hangover (Too Much Summer Partying)

Posted by Guest Blogger

Jul 25, 2014 9:36:00 AM

Everyone’s spirits are high in the summer and sometimes it’s easy to indulge in too many spirits! Summer BBQs and pool parties often involve ice-cold alcoholic beverages. Also, many weddings take place in the summer and it can be difficult not to have fun drinking and dancing the night away. I’ve never been one to drink too much, and for the past 10 months haven’t been drinking at all! I can relate, though, to feeling out of sorts the next day after having an extra glass of wine or two when there’s something special to celebrate.  

If you overindulge in one too many cocktails and wake up feeling not so great the next day, you can combat your hangover with some simple yoga moves. Resist the urge to indulge in a heavy meal and pop a Tylenol. The best thing you can do, is eat a breakfast high in fiber (oatmeal or sprouted wheat toast) and good quality protein (hard boiled egg instead of greasy bacon), drink a hydrating coconut water along with your coffee or tea, and move the body to sweat out the alcohol.

The Self Love Myth

Posted by Guest Blogger

Jul 8, 2014 8:30:00 AM

As if a breakup isn’t hard enough, there’s always some underlying self-doubt that happens in the period that follows.

Personally, I’ve found that my greatest strengths have come from my biggest failures…so there’s a strange sense of compliance with the darkness that ensues. I’ve been lucky enough in most of my breakup history to be able to acknowledge and respect one another as the end rolls around.

Connect & Calibrate: Rituals

Posted by Guest Blogger

I want rituals. I believe I was opening Gabby Bernstein's new book to a page, or perhaps it was in my recent Astrological Chart reading or maybe at Acupuncture, but somewhere I got in my head the notion to have rituals.  I started to envision a sweet morning with coffee and a candle lit while waking up slow maybe to some hippie altar, or a meditation pillow and some gong noises with fresh flowers every day at 2pm or perhaps a lavender oil moment before bed and some breath work.

How did you first learn about Juil?

I became aware of the Juil company online, a couple of years back. I recall seeing the ever-inspiring Kathryn Budig rocking her pair of Juil Heras. They looked amazing, and when I researched further, I was pulled in instantly by the company’s philosophy.

Gina Caputo – Boulder, CO based yoga teacher and Juil ambassador

Hometown: Moraga, California

Current town: Boulder, Colorado

What do you never leave the house without? Polarized sunglasses! At least 2 pairs on hand at all times!

Where is your favorite place to sport Juil footwear? And what have your experiences been?! I love wearing them as I walk around yoga festivals like Wanderlust. For one thing, they are so easy to slip on and off going in and out of amazing classes. These festivals are at the most beautiful locations so when you’re not in class, you’re strolling amongst so many yogis on grass, wood, dirt, concrete, everything just taking in the surroundings! They serve the dual purpose of keeping you energetically connected to the earth below as well as mentally grounded in peace and calm, which is nice so you don’t get overstimulated or overwhelmed – especially if you’re teaching!!

Water!

Where is your favorite place to sport Juil footwear? And what have your experiences been?!

I live in Juil sandals, because as a yoga teacher, the connection through the feet to the earth is very important. Wearing Juil sandals is the next best thing to being barefoot. So when we are on retreat in charged places, like the volcanic island of Santorini, Juil sandals are perfect because they are elegant, travel well, and connect me to the current of the power spots of the world.

What are the first three words that come to your mind
