My Diet Belifs

I want to introduce this topic of well-being as having to do a lot with what you eat. I find that many yogis are vegans and vegetarians…I am not one of them. I believe in a well-balanced diet in order to be the healthiest and best you. This does not mean that I find either of those diets bad or good it’s just not what I have chosen for my life.

When it comes to diets many people start to follow the “fad Diets” these are the no carb diets, paleo, juice cleanses and many more. The issue with these are you loose the weight, but then gain it back very quickly. This is why I believe in a balanced diet. Theres a reason that we eat every type of food and why we need it to be healthy. Losing weight, gaining weight, and maintaining is an equation of calories in and out.

I will soon be posting on how I manage my weight and why you need certain foods in your diet like fat. I will also be writing about a juice cleanse or two, not as a method for losing weight but as a way to actually clean out the body from all the garbage and toxins are bodies are forced to digest!

Peace & Love

Why Blog?

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to give you all a little excerpt about why I have begun to create this blog. There are many reasons why I wanted to blog in the first place including being a resume booster(LOL!). But, if I was to do it for solely that reason it would just be about me not about yoga.

I have been practicing yoga on and off, a few classes here and there for the last 5 years. Recently, my passion has grown for yoga in a whole new way. Since I started college 3 years ago I found my stress levels were unusually high, and I found myself displacing that energy on those who surrounded me.

With the use of yoga I have now been able to learn to let go instead and live in the moment. Most people do not understand that yoga can bring you this, and I always try to describe it as a “mental state.” The only people who ever understand are the people who are regularly practicing. This isn’t something that happens after practicing once it’s a constant journey on learning more about yourself and becoming one with your true self.

Now I find myself practicing at the studio at least once a week depending on how busy I am with school. During summer break I went 5 days a week and that was the turning point for me. I now am on a hunt to become a yoga teacher. Currently I am signed up for Yoga Cara’s YTT in New Zealand(more on this to come!)

I hope you find all the different aspects of a yogi lifestyle as interesting as I do. I will be posting more on ways to improve your lifestyle with yoga, your practice and my overall journey!

Peace & Love
