Happy Tuesday & welcome to Day 3 & our last day of Balancing poses for the #ckyogachallenge! Which one’s been your favorite? Don’t worry, we kick off Day 4 with Core (rhyming is fun!)
Today’s pose is one of the most beautiful, elegant, and challenging balancing poses in my humble opinion. When done correctly, this pose takes strength, stamina, flexibility and of course, balance.
My girl Katie will give a beautifully described run-down of this pose over on her Mamaste Yoga page, so go check her out.
For the nutritional nugget for Day 3 of the Balancing portion of this challenge, I’m listing a number of balancing tips for your internal goings on.
- Balancing your PH levels can be done through a diet of leafy greens, essential vitamins, and low glycemic fruits. PH levels are important for digestive health, skin wellness and if your levels are off, inflammation can occur. Vitamins B-12, B-6 and folic acid can help maintain your PH, along with eating alkalizing foods.
- Balance your digestive track first thing in the morning by consuming two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (raw). In the raw form, apple cider vinegar gives you a quick energy boost, gets your digestive track going, and is an alkalizing agent.
- Balance the absorption of calcium with magnesium. Without magnesium, calcium isn’t fully utilized.
- Balancing recovery of your body from a nutritional perspective is often missed. You need to replenish the essential nutrients, protein, and vitamins you lose when you sweat and workout. Electrolytes, sodium, water, to name a few.
