P.O.W #6 Yin yoga, Algae and Wayne Dyer

“3 P’s for Optimal Performance and Health”


PHYSICAL: Yin Yoga 

Yin Yoga is great for all levels. A perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga (hatha, vinyasa)  that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

When practicing yin yoga we have the opportunity to tap into our parasympathetic nervous system (our rest and digest system) through pranayama (breathing) A slow, deep, even breath will create a relaxed nervous system, allowing for a calm mind

Initially this style of yoga may seem boring, passive, or soft but yin practice can actually be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! However 3-4 minutes is the go to hold times in most classes, unless you are extremely advanced.

You need to experience yin yoga for yourself to truly see what it is all about.

POTIONS Algae

Benefits of Chlorella

Chlorella is one of the most ancient food plants known on earth. Chlorella floats on the water’s surface soaking up sunshine and converting it into green energy power cells all day long.

Chlorella contains the highest concentration of chlorophyll (a potent green pigment) of any plant on earth.

Chlorella intake has a positive effect on blood cholesterol, blood sugar, appetite control and also has the power to remove toxins from the body.

Benefits of Spirulina

Spirulina is another ancient superfood plant containing an impressive 70% protein content!

Spirulina is also a natural source of minerals, including iron, calcium, and magnesium.

Spirulina contains high levels of B12 and plant-based protein, making it especially perfect for vegetarian and vegan diets.

Spirulina intake reduces blood cholesterol and inflammation.

Spirulina also removes accumulated toxins in the body.

PERSON: Wayne Dyer

Wayne Dyer has been someone Ive looked up to for years now. Reading his books on self improvement have motivated and inspired and I hope they can do the same for you!

“My purpose is to help people look at themselves and begin to shift their concepts,” he said. “Remember, we are not our country, our race, or religion. We are eternal spirits. Seeing ourselves as spiritual beings without label is a way to transform the world and reach a sacred place for all of humanity.”

Dyer was affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans.

His main message was “that every person has the potential to live an extraordinary life. What’s more, it’s possible for every person to manifest their deepest desires—if they honour their inner divinity and consciously choose to live from their “Highest Self.”

How are your going to live your most extraordinary life?
