Saturday Yoga Class Update

Shawn is teaching Saturday yoga class! It's so important to keep the class going and for students to show up. If not, Yoga NW will need to fill that time with a productive class that will draw students, and the Self-Care Essentials class will be canceled. If that is the case I'm sure I can start something up when I am ready on the east side. I hope you all are excited to keep your practice going through the summer and be in a wonderful state of self-care!

Slow Cooked Cuban Pork

We spent the winter working on this recipe and I couldn't get it right until this spring!I'm so excited so share it with you! The lunar new year always brings a few tangerines into our lives and we eat very little fruit so they sit around for a long time. This year I decided to use them in our cooking to dilute the sugar rush a little bit. This is a simple dish that just needs the right amount of cooking time to make it fall apart delicious, with a citrusy tang  Slow cooking is the key so give it all day to cook. Take the time to marinade this dish overnight if you want to flavors to really pop.
