Hi friends! Today I want to discuss Yoga & weights

Yes! LOVE ALL THE AMAZINGNESS in this BEAUTIFUL WORLD!!! 

Happy Earth Day!!!

I'm so excited to share one of my wellness tips for my RADIATE & GLOW tip of the day!!

It's alllll about WHY I Practice Yoga With Arm & Leg Weights!

If you want to take your yoga practice to the next level, I highly recommend using arm and/or leg weights. 

I'm a practicing yogi for the past 9 years, 5 of which I've been using arm/leg weights. And I LOVE IT! I began with 1 lb arm weights and 1 lb leg weights. I underestimated how just one extra pound on the limb changed the dynamics of my yoga practice. I gradually built up to 3-5 per arm and 2-6 per leg. Some days I can use more than others, but no matter what, I listen to my body! I'll even go as far as using 6-10 lb weighted vest 2-3x/week, and that definitely helps build controlled strength. Of course, I also enjoy sessions without weights, providing gratitude for the free-flowing, unrestricted motion of my body. 

Why you may ask??

Here are 4 reasons:

  1. Using arm and leg weights allows for better sustained muscle engagement. It's similar to using weights with kickboxing or cardio classes. Or how the FASTEST man in the world Ussain Bolt (and many other athletes), train with weights attached! Its the same concept just extended to the practice of Yoga, with weights attached to limbs. This most definitely requires increased awareness, while cultivating subtle muscle control. 
  2. Build strength, while toning. This includes core, shoulders, hands, forearms, leg, -and glute strength! It's a full body workout, especially if you incorporate core strengthening floor work!
  3. Promotes increased flexibility- once you learn to keep the muscle engaged, its challenging to learn to slowly release an engaged muscle to feel the stretch. Beware though! This process takes time and must be done carefully to avoid overstretching! 
  4. It forces you to go SLOW and take your time. Acknowledge the strength of each muscle and which muscles are more engaged and easily fatigued. As with anything, it gets better with time and practice. 

Okay! So now you know the awesome reasons to use ways, here's HOW to incorporate them into your practice!

As with anything, start slow! Build up gradually!

  1. Start with 1 lb weights either around your wrists or ankles. 
  2. Every 2-4 weeks, you can try increasing the weight. Understand that some days it will be harder than others. Most importantly, Listen to your body. Meet your body where its at. And have TONS OF FUN! :) 

Try it out and be sure to let me know what you think! I look forward to hearing how it can take your practice and wellness to the next level!

I also back up and explain a bit about free radicals!!

Hi friends!

Check out my mini DIY MATCHA GREEN TEA FACE MASK with raw cacao featured in @mindbodygreen awhile back!  

You'll LOVE IT!! 

https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-12442/diy-rejuvenate-your-skin-with-this-green-tea-mask.html


So we all know about the wonderful benefits of green tea—

It has tons of polyphenols that provide protection from UV rays and have potent anti-inflammatory effects.

More recently, polyphenols in green tea have been shown to decrease sebum production and this decreases the development of acne.

What about Theobroma Cacao (or cacao)? Love my cacao!!! Talk about some amazing superfood! Filled with Flavonoids + Polyphenols that do wonders for your body, mind & SKIN! 

I like to create own organic skin care products and I know that SO DO many of you! --> I hope you enjoy!

DIY Matcha Green Tea Mask

Fun fact: Essentially you only need matcha green tea, but I added some extra boosts. Organic ingredients preferred.

Ingredients

  • Matcha green tea
  • Drop of essential oils (I used lavender and lemongrass)
  • Rose water (from tea bag) 
  • Fresh coconut water (can use regular water)
  • Honey
  • Cacao powder (also packed with polyphenols)
  • Turmeric powder (anti-inflammatory effects are potent)

Preparation

  1. Mix in a bowl until you reach the desire consistency. (Must be thick enough to apply.)
  2. Apply on your face and neck. Let sit for 20 minutes.
    NOW COMES THE FUN PART!
  3. Play soothing music, meditate, etc. Relax and let the rejuvenating effects take place! (Cucumbers over your eyes are good touch.)
  4. Gently rinse your skin with a warm towel. (Don't rub.)
  5. Apply a moisturizer. (I used a resveratrol serum, and Vitamin C + Vitamin E are also good choices.)

And voila! Fresh, healthy clear beautiful skin!!

Repeat at least once a week.
