There has been much hype about some recent marketing attempts by higher profile yoga teachers lately with respect to the use of 'Yoga for Weight Loss' as a branding tool or theme. I thought I would pipe into this conversation briefly with a little perspective on both sides of the debate.
Gravity can be defined as the agent that gives weight to objects with mass and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped. In the context of yoga, gravity provides the medium in which we can exert force, generate strength, and root against to form poses. By understanding the basic principle of 'lines' of gravity, we can be more effective in our approach to alignment, exertion, and pose formation.
Breathe in clarity and space as you flow through a series of standing poses, balances and transitions aimed at drawing attention inwards while also circulating energy throughout the body and mind.
Sourcing out high quality, vegan protein has become a mission of mine. I was delighted to discover organic, raw hemp hearts from Manitoba Harvest. Hemp is quickly becoming known as a highly sustainable plant for nutrition and consumer products (like clothing). After reviewing the overall health benefits of hemp, I am now hooked and look forward to integrating hemp hearts, hemp protein, and hemp oil into my regular nutrition plan.
