How to (Finally!) Find Your Shoulder Width for Yoga - UPDATED

UPDATED We are constantly learning new stuff!  So, after working with yogis and yoginis from far and wide, short and tall, young and old, big and little, we have noticed something interesting....

My 10 Favourite Gluten, Dairy, and Egg Free Sauces and Dressings

I LOVE extra sauce! This always causes me stress when I eat in a restaurant. I am always worried when I order, that they either won’t understand or won’t remember that I need extra sauce on the side in case there is not enough in the dish. I am kind of a cross between Sally from “When Harry Met Sally” and Rainman. So, when I developed intolerances to gluten, dairy, and eggs, my sauce loving days were in peril. Goodbye Hollandaise and Béarnaise. Goodbye, extra mayo. Goodbye almost every rich, creamy, delicious sauce that ever existed! Or so I thought….there was no way I was going to eat anything sauce-less. NO way! For me, it is more like having food...
