Find out why you (and everybody you know) needs yoga!
Here at Kulae, we love yoga just as much as the next person. But let’s face it, no matter how big of a yogi you are, sometimes it’s good to shake things up a little. In fact, trying a new fitness class can work parts of the body that you don’t normally use during your asanas, making your yoga practice that much stronger when you return to the mat.
There’s nothing like Kulae’s Elite Hybrid yoga mat towel to keep you dry and slip-free during your hot yoga class. It absorbs moisture like no other, and is completely machine washable. But how do you keep it looking good class after class, and wash after wash? Here are a few tips:
So you’ve decided to embark on a new adventure and try yoga, which is great. But first you need a mat. There are so many choices available, how do you even know where to begin? Here are a few tips to help you sort through the options and find the perfect yoga mat for you.
Essential oils and yoga are a natural combination, and using them during your practice can enhance your performance, calm your mind, and relax your muscles. All it takes is a little information and a willing nose to find the right combination for you.
So what exactly are essential oils?
Essential oils are botanical extracts collected from flowers, herbs, trees and other plants and are commonly used for healing or aromatherapy. Herbalists and others interested in natural medicine have been using essential oils to treat common ailments for many years, and they can be wonderful when used correctly. Essential oils are very concentrated, and should not be used undiluted directly on the skin. Always consult a doctor, certified herbalist, or an aromatherapist before attempting to use them.
Looking to invigorate your yoga practice? Or maybe you’re new to yoga and looking for some advice on how to start. Or perhaps you’re an old pro and you just need a little motivation to reconnect to the essence of your practice. Wherever you are on your yoga journey, check out these six books for some inspiration.
When in Rome.........
Here I am in Rome visiting my husband's family. My way of eating is very strange to them. They drown all vegetables in olive oil while cooking them within an inch of their lives, put cheese on everything and eat tons of carbs (like I needed to mention that last part).
When I first met my husband and I would offer to cook at Christamstime but they would never let me. I am sure they thought "what does this skinny American girl know about cooking?". Since I have been coming here for 7 years now and cooking my own food they have tried a few things. Turns out they actually enjoy my food "senza olio" but still think eating raw vegetables and eggs for breakfast is "strano".
This morning I made my usual Protein Pancakes but added chocolate vegan protein to appeal to the Italians.
Here is the recipe for 6:
12 egg whites
2 cups of oats
2 scoops of chocolate protein
1/2 cup of almond milk
Mix it all up in the blender and cook in a non-stick pan.
Each pancake has: protein 11 gms, carbohydrates 25 gms and fat 3 gms.
If you are in my Shape Up program this would be perfect for breakfast with a side of 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt. It is 1 fruit, 1 starchy carb and 1 lean protein.
