The Sun and Moon Breath is an ancient yoga technique that balances your mind and body. The moon breath (left nostril) calms your nervous system while the sun breath (right nostril) perks you up. It works wonders. Best tried while seated in a meditative and comfortable position.
1. Place your right thumb over your right nostril.
2. Close your mouth, and inhale in very deeply and very slowly through your left nostril, pause holding your breath for a couple of seconds.
3. Release your thumb and switch to covering your left nostril while exhaling steadily through your right nostril, then inhale and pause again.
4. Reverse and repeat several times. 2 inhales and 2 exhales makes one Sun moon Breath.
This will cause a physiological change in your body and brain— leaving you both revitalized and relaxed at the same time.

The Romantic Cities of Naples and Sorrento are very close in Italy, both facing the blue Mediterranean Sea. Therefore, the correct answer is Ravioli alla sorrentina!
Let’s fix it together, here’s the recipe
“Our macrobiotic cuisine, which can be so very delicious, requires a creative cook who also understands the art of yin-yang arrangement. Unfortunately, modern education neglects the creative capacity to such a degree that it is rare that we meet a good cook in the Occident” -George Ohsawa, Zen Macrobiotics
FORTUNATELY, WE HAVE THE HOLLYSTIC HIDEAWAY!
…with our CREATIVE, PASSIONATE, BALANCED AND LIFE GIVING COOK, Holly Vernon
The Mediterranean cuisine is a human patrimony, inscribed since 2010 in the Unesco Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It constitutes a set of skills, knowledge, practices and traditions ranging from the landscape to the table, including the crops, harvesting, fishing, conservation, processing, preparation and, particularly, consumption of food. The Mediterranean diet is characterized by a nutritional model that has remained constant over time and space, consisting mainly of olive oil, cereals, fresh or dried fruit and vegetables, a very moderate amount of fish, dairy and meat, and many condiments and spices, all accompanied by wine or infusions, always respecting beliefs of each community. However, the Mediterranean diet (from the Greek diaita, or way of life) encompasses more than just food. It promotes social interaction, since communal meals are the cornerstone of social customs and festive events. It has given rise to a considerable body of knowledge, songs, maxims, tales and legends. The system is rooted in respect for the territory and biodiversity, and ensures the conservation and development of traditional activities and crafts linked to fishing and farming in the Mediterranean communities which Soria in Spain, Koroni in Greece, Cilento in Italy and Chefchaouen in Morocco are examples. Women play a particularly vital role in the transmission of expertise, as well as knowledge of rituals, traditional gestures and celebrations, and the safeguarding of techniques.
