Build Strength in the Fitness Center With These Yoga Poses

October 30th, 2014

Yoga is an excellent way to rejuvenate your body and relax your mind. In our apartments in Anaheim with yoga studio you have plenty of room to stretch.

Here are five yoga poses you can do in the Crossing yoga studio if you want to build strength:

  • The Boat Pose improves core strength and hip flexibility. If you hold this pose for a minimum of five breaths, it will help you build core muscles, align the spine and prevent chronic back pain.
  • The Sprung-up Pose is best-performed from full lotus pose. The lift pulls every muscle in the body into the core, toning the muscles of the chest, core, thighs and arms while building physical and mental endurance.
  • Plank is usually used as a transitional pose,held for five breaths with arms straight, but holding this pose for a full minute builds core and upper body strength and relaxes the nervous system.
  • The Four-pronged Staff Posture develops shoulder alignment through the engagement of the entire shoulder girdle. When done properly, the pose improves upper body strength and builds inner determination.
  • Bakasana is one of the basic arm balance poses. The pose engages the shoulder girdle and relaxes the spine if done correctly. However, without developed core, the pose can put a lot of strain on the wrists.

Pick the Right Collar for Your Anaheim Pup

October 28th, 2014

We are fortunate to live at our pet-friendly apartments in Anaheim. Our contemporary community is a great spot for pet owners.

Dog Collars: Which type Is best for your dog?

However it is important that you pic the right collar for your dog to hang his identification tags and other important tags, as well as for training.

  • A flat collar is the standard collar for most dogs. It has a closure that easily opens via a buckle or a snap. They come in a large variety of colors and designs. When attached to your dog’s neck, you should be able to get two fingers under the collar.
  • The martingale collar is a limited-slip collar. It is good for dogs who easily slip out of their collars or for dogs who have very narrow heads, such as greyhounds. With this collar, there is a metal ring on both ends of a length of material. Another loop of material goes through both rings and a leash attaches to a ring on this loop.
  • The head collar is placed around your dog’s neck and sits high on his head, right behind his ears. There’s another strap that forms a loop around the muzzle. This collar is great for hyper, energetic dogs who are strong.
  • The choke chain has metal links and tightens around your dog’s neck when he pulls. It should sit high on a dog’s neck, just behind the ears. This collar can be dangerous to use. Consult an experienced dog trainer if you would like to use this type of collar.
  • Shock collars utilize electronic shocks and are generally used as a training devise. These type of collars can irritate your dog’s neck.

Tips to Keep Your Bike Secure at Our Anaheim Apartment

September 30th, 2014

Owning a bicycle is a great advantage in this day and age. Rising gas prices make for an expensive commute, and the internet has become a huge distraction for those of us who want to work out and can’t find the time. Owning a bike helps in many ways.

Our eco-friendly apartments in Anaheim with bicycle parking take full advantage of riding. That is why we have a few helpful tips to keep your bike secure at our apartments in Anaheim with bicycle parking.

  • This might seem obvious, but you should always lock your bicycle. Even if you are just running inside your apartment for a moment, make sure to lock up your bike. Thieves take advantage of an opportunity, and a bike without a lock is a beacon to them.
  • Locking your bike to a bike rack is another excellent way to assure that your bike stays safe. Parking in a weird or out-of-view place is another way of giving thieves the chance to strike.
  • If you use a U-Lock, make sure that you attach it to your bike by passing it through your rear wheel rim and then around a secure bike rack or post. If you keep the lock within the frame, it makes it very difficult, nearly impossible, to steal the bike by removing the rear tire.
  • Always have an extra lock, or several. Keep one at home, one at work, one in a backpack. This will lessen the chances of forgetting to have a lock when you desperately need one.
  • Remove any loose gear, such as lights or a water bottle, before leaving your bike. These are also easy targets.

No one leaves Fire and Ice hungry. It’s an all-you-can-eat meal, so start the process again with the same ingredients, or go for a brand new dish. You will be amazed at the vast number of choices you have with various styles of pasta, tomatoes, calamari, sausage, and more.

Sunday night is Salsa night at Fire and Ice. From Monday through Friday, you can get three, four, and five dollar specials during happy hour (from 4 pm to 7 pm).

Every Friday and Saturday night, live DJs will keep the music playing by the outdoor fire pit. It’s a great place for a party!

Go Green in Anaheim: Try These Substitutes for Bleach

September 26th, 2014

When you’re trying to transition to an all-green, eco-friendly home, there are many details of life that slip through the cracks.


Bleach, an item found in every home, can be replaced easily and eco-efficiently with a few additives to your detergent or even some pre-wash techniques.

The key to green apartments in Anaheim is focusing on everything, from gas and food waste to the seemingly small concept of bleach. Try these techniques to keep your clothes prim and proper, not to mention eco-friendly:

  • Add a half-cup of baking soda to your detergent for brighter, whiter whites. If you still feel the need to use bleach, toss in baking soda and cut back on your bleach use.
  • Combine six parts water with one part distilled vinegar, and soak your clothes in it overnight, then wash.
  • Using oxygen-based bleach is more eco-friendly, and if you allow clothes to soak in it overnight, you will allow it to work just as quickly as chlorine bleach.
  • For all-white loads, use a cup of hydrogen peroxide with detergent.
  • Air-dry! Hanging your clothes outside allows UV rays to both bleach and disinfect your whites.

Whether you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint or are simply ready for a change of pace in our green apartments in Anaheim, these tips will put you on the path toward a greener life.

This exhibit is currently at Bowers Museum, which is located at 2002 North Main Street. This is approximately one mile from our modern Anaheim apartments. Exhibit hours are as follows: from 10 am to 4 pm.

This exhibit happens through October 16th, and admission prices are affordable. Adults are $13 during the weekdays and $15 on the weekends. Seniors and students are $10 on weekdays and $12 on the weekends. Those who are under age 12 are free of charge.

Horses have had a tremendous impact on both the Chinese and Japanese culture. These magnificent creatures were used both in trade work and for recreational purposes. They also were important in mythology, religion, folklore, and philosophy in both of these cultures.

Most of the early pictures of Chinese horses were sculptures made from pottery, bronze, or stone. They were placed at the graves of a select few and were meant to enter the afterlife with the deceased. In Japan, the horse became a symbol of warfare and also of power and refinement.

Of all of the events at Bower Museum, you do not want to miss out on the Heavenly Horses exhibit. Make plans to go with friends or family today!
