November Acro Yoga Jam & Sunset Acro Video

This is Brandon and I on November 11th enjoying an amazing sunset. Come learn tricks like these at our Acro Yoga Jam and Social.

Join us on Friday November 21st at One Yoga Victoria for the November Acro Yoga Jam & Social. The jam starts at 8:30pm and goes until 10:00pm and there is a $5 drop-in fee. I will guide everyone through about 15-20 minutes of flow to get you in your body and connected to your breath. From then it will be jam time where you can either take control and get practicing with some new friends or I will cover the basics and provide some examples of some poses and transitions to try. No partner necessary. Come meet some new friends and learn some new tricks. We will most likely head over to the Bent Mast for some social time afterwards for those who are interested. Maximum capacity is 35 people so arrive early to get a spot.

Oat-free, gluten-free, grain-free, vegan granola!

gluten free, oat free, vegan  granola

Ingredients:

Three heaping tablespoons of coconut oil
One quarter cup natural organic maple syrup
One teaspoon organic vanilla
Five cups of chopped nuts of your choice (I used an equal mixture of sliced almonds, chopped raw cashews, chopped raw pecans, and whole hazelnuts)
One quarter cup of flaxseeds
Two tablespoons of chia seeds
One third a cup of raw unsweetened organic coconut flakes
One cup of dried fruit of your choice (I used a mixture of golden raisins, unsweetened cranberries, and chopped dates)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large pot melt the coconut oil on very low heat. Add in the maple syrup and vanilla and stir. Add the nut mixture, flaxseeds and chia seed and stir to coat the nuts and seeds in the coconut oil and maple syrup. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the nut/seed mixture evenly onto the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the the nuts are becoming evenly golden and toasted. Take the granola out of the oven and mix in the dried fruit. Place back in the oven for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Eat on yogurt, in milk, as a salad topper, or on its own! Makes about 7-8 servings.

Spice it up by adding cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cacao etc. into the coconut oil mix. Other nut/seed ideas: Walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds. Other fruit ideas: chopped dried apricots, sliced dried apple, chopped dried mango, dried coconut chunks.
