5-Minute Golden Milk Recipe

Here’s a quick step by step recipe on how to make your very own Turmeric Tea aka “Golden Milk” 💁🏻‍♀️


What exactly is Golden Milk & Are there any benefits?

  • This warm drink which is packed with Turmeric has been valued for its medicinal properties in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine for centuries!

  • Some of the benefits include: aiding in weight loss, improving heart health, supports digestion, immune function and liver function

  • Turmeric (Curcumin) is known as the “Spice of Life” —Many chronic diseases have inflammation at their root (Read more here)

  • I’ve enjoyed this best right before going to bed—as it also aids with relaxation and helps boost the immune system while sleeping 😌 💤


What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups of milk of your choice (coconut*, almond, oat...)

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

  • A pinch of black pepper

  • Tiny piece of freshly peeled ginger root

*Optional Ingredients: pinch of cayenne pepper & 1 teaspoon of raw honey/maple syrup

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Blend your choice of milk and ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth

  2. Pour into a small saucepan and heat for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until hot (do not boil)

  3. Sip & Enjoy 😌

Boogie Down Yoga

This past Sunday True Image Yoga held a Free sesh at the Bronx Brewery! 

Huge shout to: The Bronx Brewery, @pixbybanx for the photos below, @djrbi & @djnarco for the music, @addicteddesigns for the merchandise and online store (more info below), @stevelucin for the promo flyers, @guazabara.earthstrong for the Kombucha, @jelynn01 for the natural skin food, and @dotty_x for the breathtaking Buddha painting she completed during our class.

The backyard space was ideal with its infamous mural. Participants walked through the Brewery's tap room and enjoyed a Free 60 minute Yoga session held by yours truly. I had some friends assist me in making this a unique experience. 


Started class with collective breaths (Pranayama) Alternate Nostril Breathing.

Three good reasons for practicing this Pranayama:

1. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system and reduces blood pressure.

2. It enhances respiratory functions: increases respiratory strength and endurance.

3. It improve attention and fine-motor coordination/performance.
