Yoga: The Exercise For Everyone

Yoga has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its natural healing benefits, as well as for the benefits that it provides to the mind and body. Yoga can make you more aware of your posture, alignment, and breathing, as well as make you stronger and more flexible. It is highly beneficial to those who want a leaner, tighter body.

Along with the benefits that yoga provides to the body, it can also provide a general sense of calm and relaxation, making it the perfect exercise after a long day. Yoga incorporates meditation and deep breathing, which will melt away the stress and lead to a calmer, more positive mood.

Yoga has become convenient enough for anyone to enjoy and with the large array of yoga classes available, it can also be catered to any person’s situation and fitness level. Yoga is so convenient that classes are now offered in gyms, dance studios, through videos, online tutorials, and even through Iphone apps!

By connecting your mind, body, breathing, and awareness, yoga has been shown to address all of the elements necessary to possess a healthy mind and body. Due to the deep breathing associated with yoga, yoga can provide medicinal benefits to people suffering from asthma or respiratory problems. Yoga has been shown to also provide tremendous benefits to those suffering from heart disease. It also massages all organs of the body, which will ensure optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This will allow the body to flush out all toxins, leading to more youthfulness and energy.

To get the most out of your yoga regimen, consider joining an interactive website or forum that can answer your questions and provide support on anything related to yoga and about health, nutrition, and fitness in general. In order to get the most out of your yoga routine, make sure to also maintain a healthy, nutritious diet. For valued nutritional and diet information, consider seeking the services of a registered dietitian. Many registered dietitians lend their expertise to interactive health websites. Many registered dietitians can also provide consultations via Skype.

Don’t be afraid to search online for help with your diet or exercise regimen. Yoga can be catered to any different situation or skill level. However, to get the most out of your yoga routine, consider coupling it with a healthy diet and nutritional tips for the healthiest and fittest mind and body.

Not every natural food is good for everyone says fresh water and nutrition educator Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

A widely accepted belief in the United States in recent decades has been that “Natural foods are always good for you.” Global water and nutrition advocate and educator Sharon Kleyne recently cautioned that this belief is not always true and that not all natural foods – no matter how nutritious – are good for everyone. Kleyne recently discussed individual differences in dietary and nutritional needs on her Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show.

The key to good nutrition, says Kleyne, is proactive personal education. It is especially important to carefully research, both pro and con, fad diets and very limited diets, before undertaking them.

The Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® recently aired the segment on May 25, 2015. For the live show or a podcast, go to

The syndicated radio show, hosted by Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, atmosphere, dehydration and vision. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eye and eye allergies.

The most dramatic example of individual differences in nutritional needs, according to Kleyne, can be seen in people whose ancestry originated in the Arctic. Those individuals tend to have a very high tolerance for fat and animal protein and a completely vegan diet might not be as well suited for them as the same diet would be for somebody else.

Kleyne offers the following suggestions regarding food choices:

In general, fresh, locally grown organic foods are preferable to manufactured, processed and heavily packaged foods (corn on the cob is better than Fritos). Locally grow foods are better adapted to the local seasons and don’t need to be shipped as far so they are more likely to be fresh and don’t waste fossil fuel.

In season foods are more likely to be in balance with the body’s needs than out of season foods. Thus, celery from a nearby farm stand in July is far preferable to celery imported from Chile in January.

Everyone is genetically different and some people have a greater need for certain nutrients. This can sometimes be reflected in food cravings. Bear in mind, however, that when food cravings involve salt, fat, sugar, alcohol or caffeine, they are more likely reflecting addictions rather than actual needs.

Climate, activity level, age, health and medication can also affect one’s nutritional needs, Kleyne points out.

Each individual, says Kleyne, knows their own body better than any one else could. As unique individuals, each of us must determine for ourselves if our body has a greater need for one type of food and less of a need for another type of food.

The best bet, nutritionally, Kleyne observes, is almost always to eat a wide variety of natural foods. Be especially cautious of limited diets such as all lettuce or all carbohydrate.

Water is a nutrient, Kleyne stresses, so be sure to include an adequate amount of water in your diet. The need for water varies among individuals and no two people dehydrate at the same rate or in the same way. In general, Kleyne suggests a minimum of eight glasses of pure water per day, in addition to all other fluid intake. Drinks containing alcohol, excessive sugar, caffeine or carbonation tend to be dehydrating and should not be counted as part of the daily water quotient.

Kleyne believes that consuming water in full glasses is preferable to sipping. She suggests drinking two full eight ounce glasses in upon rising and at least two more full glasses during the day.

There is nothing more important to health, Kleyne concludes, than diet and nutrition. Nutrition education should be an ongoing lifelong process for everyone. Earth is changing every day and our bodies are also changing every day.
