We celebrate International Yoga Day, commonly known as Yoga Day, on 21 June every year, since its inception in the year 2015. A combination of physical, mental and spiritual practice, yoga has been attributed mostly to India. The asanas, or poses, that yoga includes aim at attaining overall body strength and keeping it healthy and sound. On the other hand, the mental techniques include breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana) to discipline the mind. Yoga preaches ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’ and we couldn’t agree more. This Yoga Day, let us look at what’s the best way to keep fit through yoga along with the diet in order to lose weight. If you practice yoga regularly, you’d know that you need more body strength than anything in order to get your asanasright. To ensure you build a good stamina teamed with body strength, then you must allow proteins into your diet. Generally speaking, one should eat a meal that comprises good fats, proteins and carbohydrates, plus should be dense in nutrients, both before and after yoga session.
Most people don’t really like stuffing themselves with during yoga, as it can turn out to be rather uncomfortable trying to move through asanas after a meal, especially the ones that involve twists, backward bends and inversions. One should ideally eat a meal at least two to three hours before yoga practice, or you can have a small snack an hour before to give your body some time to digest.
