A chef’s wife/ yoga teacher’s guide on how NOT to make an “asana” out of yourself… off the mat and in the kitchen!
Namaste Yummy Yogini Readers. Today I am asking for your help after my husband Andy was in a very serious and traumatic scooter accident on Monday night and has been in the CCU at Marian Hospital in Santa Maria, California since. To make a long story short, the police think there was a huge eucalyptus branch lying in the road from the storm on Sunday and he likely hit that and was thrown off the scooter. He was wearing his helmet but the impact made the helmet fall off and his face was badly bruised and fractured as a result. He has no brain, neck or spine inquires and the doctors tell me he’s very very lucky to be alive. We have no idea how long Andy was on the side of the road until someone noticed him and called 911. So if you’re out there and you saved him, you have the best karma coming your way! read more…
