With the chilly weather outside, this time of year layering options are really popular for yoga. Choose pieces that you can remove as you warm up once you're on the mat. Pairing a strappy bra with a tank and covering up with a long sleeve tee allows you to peel off the layers as you begin moving through your poses and start to sweat.
Workplace wellness programs are a growing trend rooted in necessity. Progressive companies are recognizing the importance of treating employees like human beings, moving away from the nose to the grindstone, work til you drop mentality, and instead supporting a healthy balance of work and personal endeavors.
You have likely seen coconut water sold in fitness centers and yoga studios where it is heavily advertised as a natural rehydration beverage. This is because the companies that produce commercially available coconut water claim it contains significantly more electrolytes than sports drinks. However, you might be unaware that many of the companies that produce coconut water have exaggerated the health benefits.
Yoga has taught me to own up to myself and who I am now. Not who I was or who I could be. I never shamed my body or hated it, but I'm glad to be at a happy relationship with it. I look at my big chubby body and am happy and content with it. I feel it is important to see bigger bodied people out there. When I first started yoga, it was very rare and uncommon to see bigger yogis practicing yoga. Now I am so ecstatic that there so many people who are trying yoga for themselves.
