I am NOT flexible, can I still do Yoga Bird?
Absolutely! – And you will benefit greatly from it! It is a myth that you must be flexible to get started. That’s kind of like saying you need to be a marathon runner in order to jog a mile. Come as you are, this fitness journey is about you and where you are at. We all begin at the beginning. And remember that your ability to do a pose is also affected by your skeletal structure, the length of your limbs, or any injuries you may have had or have. Practicing Yoga Bird is more about the whole mind, body, spirit connection, not how flexible you are.
THE HEALTHIEST FAST FOOD
I’m on a kick again with my favorite fast food! And what might that be, you ask? A delicious green smoothie, of course! Take the YOGA BIRD GREEN SMOOTHIE CHALLENGE by replacing your breakfast or lunch with a green smoothie for 10 days. Once you have all your favorite fruits and greens in your fridge, smoothies are quick, healthy and EASY to make! Yoga Bird’s green smoothie chart is here to help you mix and match your favorite ingredients. The 2/3 to 1/3 is the general ratio that I use! So, if I use 2 cups of fruit then I would use 1 cup of greens. Drinking one green smoothie a day, will make you happy from the inside out!
After the 10 days are over, hopefully you’ll have started a new habit of considering a green smoothie instead of your regular breakfast or lunch. Each smoothie packs quite a punch of vitamins and minerals. And you can add other boosters too, like protein power, chia seeds or even rolled oats (they really fill you up!).
One of my simple favorites is strawberries, blueberries, frozen peaches and kale (stems removed)! I add a little coconut milk if it’s too thick and a tablespoon of honey depending on how sweet my fruit was. Then, just blend away!
If you come up with a favorite combination, please share it with us in the comments below. 🙂
Happy Blending! #beyourownbird
