Dance of the Warrior

As few weeks ago, we had a substitute teacher in yoga class. He had us do a series of poses where we moved from one warrior position to another to another then back to the first one. And so on.

The Dance of the Warrior, he called it.

The dictionary defines warrior as “one who is engaged in or experienced in battle.”

The battle in yoga, I suppose, is with the anxious, unstable, and not-so-Zen side of myself.

Can I learn to stay centered in the face of fear?
Can I find my balance when life seems to be throwing me in loops?
Can I take action with insight and compassion?

In other words, can I find the way of the peaceful warrior?

As I moved through the series, my muscles trembled, my body wobbled, and my breath labored. At least, part of the time it was like that. At other times, I was calm(er) and stead(ier) and moving in rhythm. Slowly, I’m learning the dance.

Vaginal Flagyl and Alcohol – Do Not Mix

As a rule of thumb, it is always not an advice to take alcoholic beverages while you are taking medications. If you are asked by your doctor to take flagyl, you should never combine vaginal flagyl and alcohol during the course of the treatment. So far, there has been no solid proof that alcohol can indeed do dangerous side effects when combined with flagyl because there has been no sufficient studies that can support this. However, it has been known that alcohol can magnify the potential side effects of the drug because it will make the liver work harder to eliminate the substances from the body, and this can delay the process of alcohol is taken. Once you are on the process of treatment, you should never take vaginal flagyl and alcohol together. Read more…
