Did I hear you say you could share a recipe for golden milk?  I grow several different kinds of turmeric and am on the lookout for ways to incorporate them daily.  
Another wonderful session today! Namaste.

That was a very helpful cue to not bring the hands onto your back in pyramid pose if nursing a lower back issue.

Loving your original sequencing, your gentle guidance, and Ayurvedic wisdom!
I use to have a lot of back problems and am super sensitive around forward bends without support. Thanks for catching that cue and taking good care of yourself.

This seemed so gentle at the time, and yet a few hours later I am feeling secret little muscles that clearly got a great workout! Thank you Melina, for these creative practices!
Right?! I've noticed when doing familiar poses with a new prop or arm position, I too tend to wake up places I haven't felt before. Sounds like that has happened to you too? I hope you'll continue to visit this practice and see what new pathways open from your exploration.
