    We all know Suduko and crosswords can help boost our brain power, improving our focus and memory and enhancing our concentration, but did you know practising yoga for just 20 minutes a  day can do wonders for our brain too? A recent study in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health showed that 20 minutes of being on the mat can in fact be better for our brains than jogging like crazy on a treadmill for 20 minutes. In cognitive tests, those who did yoga for this period performed faster and more correctly than the sweaty bunch.

  • You Are What You Eat

    Just as each yoga pose has certain benefits on the body and can be applied for particular prerequisites, a good 'diet' should work well for you too; supporting your system, encouraging your body to feel healthy, sleep well, have strong digestion, healthy assimilation and elimination. A balanced approach towards eating needs us to be mindful, honest and kind with ourselves.

    Traditionally, yogis were lacto - vegetarians, avoiding eggs and animal flesh including fish. Yogis encourage foods to be eaten as much in their natural form as possible, synthetic and processed foods disrupt the balance. Yogis encourage wholefoods that are free from additives or subtraction, in season and not pre-packaged.
