Tuesday I had the pleasure of conducting a cooking demo and tasting of protein rich post workout foods for Equinox Gym members. The initiative is to help members think more about how their diet affects their training and overall health. Showing simple ways to integrate healthy eating for busy city living. I will be at the flagship location on 63rd and Lexington doing cooking demos on a monthly basis so if you missed this one, stay tuned for the next one. For all of those interested in the recipes, here they are. Now get cookin'

In the Autumn I find it a nice time to draw energy down into our lower body, strengthening our legs, the arches of our feet, arms, and grounding us into the season. I like to teach lunges and have students pulse down deeper into the lunge. Try it.
Start in Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog). Exhale and step your right foot forward between your hands, aligning your knee over the heel. Keep your left leg strong and firm.
Inhale and raise your torso to upright. At the same time, sweep your arms wide to the sides and raise them overhead, palms facing.
Be careful not to overarch the lower back. Lengthen your tailbone toward the floor and reach back through your left heel. This will bring the shoulder blades deeper into the back and help support your chest. Look up toward your thumbs.
Be sure not to press the front ribs forward. Draw them down and into the torso. Lift the arms from the lower back ribs, reaching through your little fingers. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute.
Then exhale, release the torso to the right thigh, sweep your hands back onto the floor, and, with another exhale, step your right foot back and return to Down Dog. Hold for a few breaths and repeat with the left foot forward for the same length of time.
