The body continues to heal after a yoga practise
It’s not just the time spent on the mat which is important. The body keeps healing itself after a yoga practise or any fitness class, activity. The nervous system is fully alert at this time especially the parasympathetic system which really helps to heal the body and keep it in it’s natural balance. So how can you keep offering your body benefits after a practise which will offer you side effects like more energy, more healing and more balance.
Having the right ingredients in your cupboard can make you more healthy.
It is a well known fact that being prepared and forward planning save you much time and also will help to keep you focused on your goals. So having the right ingredients in your cupboard will make you more motivated to go and make something which is good for your body rather than reaching out for the quick sugar fix.
