How to Apply The Right Yoga Diet There are two common but essential ways to start applying the right diet for yoga: Know the recommended foods to eat while practicing yoga. Yoga is practiced along with the right diet as this is an overall health-friendly practice. In order to go on the right diet, you need to know the right foods to incorporate in your yoga diet. The recommended foods when practicing yoga are fruits, grains like oats, wheat, and etc, unsalted nuts and seeds, herbal teas, fresh juices and water, all types of vegetables especially spices like garlic, tofu, beans, other spices like ginger, mint, etc. as well as other natural, unrefined, non-fatty foods. These are the right foods to eat because they contain natural nutrients like protein that are helpful to your body and mind and these are also foods that have healing properties that can help yoga. Know the foods you should limit and avoid while practicing yoga. If you want to apply the right and proper diet for yoga practice, you must limit the intake of cer- tain foods and avoid certain foods as well. You can do this if you know what these foods are. Foods to limit and avoid when doing yoga are meat, fish poultry and eggs, products that contain animal fats be it oil or butter, fried foods especially those that are deep fried and with the use of animal oil, refined flour and sugar and products containing these, foods that are overcooked, alcohol, drugs, cigarette, processed and canned foods, junk foods, too spicy foods, and other foods that are not considered real food. These foods contain ingredients that are not helpful to the mind and body or eating too much of these can already hamper the results that yoga can give you. How to Dress Properly What you wear during yoga can make or break the session so it is right to know how to dress properly during a toga session. -Wear light and thin clothes. In order to perform yoga comfortably, wear thin and light clothes like cotton leggings, tank top, light shirt and shorts. Do not wear heavy pants and dress because they can affect how you perform your poses and your relaxation. -Wear not-too tight and not-too-loose clothes. Not-too-tight clothes can give comfort while you are doing yoga as they do not stick too much to your body and give discomfort when sweating. However, you need to wear not-too-loose clothes so that it also wouldn’t cause accidents while you are doing your yoga poses. -Wear light and thin sweater if you are in cold climates. Since you cannot control the climate of a place, you can wear sweaters but make sure they are light and thin so they won’t give discomfort while doing yoga at the same time, you would be kept warm. -Don’t wear jewelry. During a yoga session, it pays when you stop wearing jewelry and other accessories. Jewelry and other accessories may cause accidents while doing yoga and may only cause distraction when meditating and relaxing. How to Select The Right Yoga Mat Your yoga mat can also give or take comfort away while performing yoga so it is a must to select the right yoga mat. Here’s how: –Choose a thin and light yoga mat especially if you are on the go. Thin and light yoga mats are very convenient to carry especially if you are doing yoga somewhere. -Consider the size of the mat. Choose a mat that’s just the right size for you. If you are too huge than the standard-sized yoga mat, you might consider choosing a larger mat. -Consider its stickiness. This refers to how the yoga mat sticks to the floor. It is important that the yoga mat sticks well on the floor so that it won’t come loose during your yoga poses. However, it is also important to ensure that your yoga mat really sticks on the floor and not on your body and give discomfort and distraction every time you move. -Choose a mat that’s easy to clean. This will save you from inconvenience in case the mat gets stained as you can easily get it cleaned. -Consider its traction especially when it comes in contact with your perspiration. Choose a mat that reacts well with your perspiration and won’t become slippery. This can save you from accidents brought about by wet mats due to your perspiration.

How to Know If Yoga is Perfect for You? Are you thinking about trying yoga but are unsure if it is right for you? Well, you are in luck. Yoga is an appropriate workout regimen for many people. Here are some of the things to consider if you would like to know if yoga is right for you: You want to increase your flexibility. Most people do not have much flexibility in their muscles and joints. In many cases, the older you get, the less flexibility you have in your body. Yoga is an easy and safe way to gradually increase how flexible your body is. While you probably will not notice results overnight, if you stay with the yoga routine you may see results in as little as a week. You want to reduce stress levels. Working out is a healthy way to release stress from your body. Doing yoga at the end of the day gives you something positive to focus on and you will be releasing negative energy at the same time. In addition to that, many people how built-up stress in their body. If you are overly stressed, you can hold tension in your muscles without realizing it. Holding stress in your muscles will make you tense and it will be hard to fully relax and unwind. Doing yoga can be a remedy to this. Yoga stretches will target the muscles and a healthy stretch will allow all the pent-up stress to be released. For stress, yoga stretches that focus on the neck, back and shoulder area will be especially helpful because most people hold stress in these areas, making your whole body feel uptight. If you do yoga every day, you will feel a difference after the very first session. Yoga is disability-friendly. Working out is an important part of living a healthy life. However, many people have disabilities that prevent them from doing certain things such as lifting weights, extreme cardio, or even running. The good news is that yoga can be an easy fitness routine for people who have limited motion. Because yoga is low impact, it does not cause too much stress on the joints and other body parts. Yoga is very forgiving to people who do not have perfect form and you are able to go however fast, or slow, you like. Those with disabilities should have a discussion with their doctor before starting a new fitness routine. Those with back problems will feel a difference. Having chronic back pain can directly affect your quality of life in a negative way. More than half of the population suffers from type of back problem that prevents them from living the way that they would like to on a daily basis. Doctors will prescribe pain medication but that is not the solution. Prescription pain medicine may ease the symptoms but they will not cure the problem. It is easy for a dependency to develop because synthetic medication is highly addictive in some instances. Dependency may also develop simply because this is the only thing that takes the pain away. Instead of being on pills as a way to cope with the pain, yoga offers a more natural and effective solution. While it may not work for everyone, most people with back ailments report that yoga provides them with pain relief. There are a number of reasons for this, the top reasons being that having more mobility in the joints allow for more blood flow. Scoliosis is another ailment that will benefit from the practice of yoga. Some people with scoliosis may find it difficult in the beginning because of the limited mobility that the curvature of the spine causes. However, with consistent practice, yoga will help the mobility to increase and the pain will be alleviated. Start slow and listen to your body. Pushing your body into positions that it is not ready to go into may result in injury. If you feel pain at any time, take a break and go more slowly. Children can do yoga too. Children are known for having excess energy and sometimes they need help winding down. Yoga is the perfect solution. Because of the calming nature of yoga and the slow and precise movements, yoga gives children a place to focus their extra energy in a positive way that is also beneficial to their well-being as individuals. Doing yoga in the mornings with the children is a great way to start the day. Ending the day with a simple yoga routine is the perfect way for children to release stress and get in the mood for bed. The children will find it fun and exciting to twist their body into different positions. Starting yoga early in life is a great way to shape developing bodies in the right way. If you want a better quality of life, yoga is for you! Anyone can practice yoga. Age, gender, or disabilities do not hinder your ability. While everyone will not be able to perform every pose, it is worth a try to find something simple that you can do. Being physically fit and healthy is priceless. Yoga may seem simple and easy and that is the beauty of it; no heavy equipment or special clothes are required. All you need is the willingness to put your body into new positions. It may be tough in the beginning but before you know it, you will be healthier, feeling great and looking better than ever before. Yoga is more than just a fitness routine; it is a lifestyle choice that anyone can benefit from. Practicing yoga three or four times a week is all that is needed for results.
