As the days grow short and temperatures begin to drop, that outdoor exercise routine may seem less appealing. So along with returning to the neighborhood gym for your daily workout, try adding a yoga routine to help keep fit, relaxed and toned. Nearly every lakeshore town has at least one yoga studio offering sessions year round. Visit our Yoga Studio page and see if there is a yoga teacher somewhere near you. Whether you're looking for classes on Hatha Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Kundalini or Power Yoga, no doubt the lakeshore has a studio tailor made for you. And when the temperature warms up again, you'll be ready for the area's many beach yoga sessions held either at sunrise or sunset. Namaste.
Food, Glorious Food:
Before we know it, it will be time for choosing our Thanksgiving turkeys and pulling out family recipes for holiday cookies. Until then, a great way to get ready for the cold weather headed our way is to start to enjoy the foods and flavors of autumn. Cranberries, butternut squash, sweet potatoes and mulled apple cider are delicious ingredients for any harvest meal. This month's LEL Recipe page offers a sample menu that will jumpstart the season. We hope the tasty recipes below will help make the loss of summer's berries and sweet corn a little easier to bear.

Don't forget to read the Calendar of Events for October and November. There's always something happening on the lakeshore.
