An Introduction to Organic Food

14 Nov

In recent years organic foods have become very popular, demonstrating the interest of many people for positive change in food and also the distrust about the safety of conventional food. If there is no use of fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides in any stage of production or in the soil where they are grown, then these foods and vegetables are considered “organic”.

For some, the word “organic” means nutritious. For others organic food means cleaner and safer ones. There are some people who believe “organic” are those foods produced without causing pollution or harming the air, land and water.

Actually the positive characteristics that are attributed to organic products are difficult to establish as there is no general regulation.

Time of day to practise Pranayama

1 Nov

Traditionally pranayama is done early in the morning, before other activities. Classically, just before sunrise. Early, even if not precisely at dawn, is idea time in which we can be free from most daily interruptions. Another important note is that  our  minds are  less cluttered with the events and preoccupations of the day. Our body may be a little stiff, but potentially neutral.

Pranayama at this time offers a clear start to the day, a moment to be self reflective and to set up good patterns of breath and mindfulness for the next 24 hours. It gives us an idea of how we actually are, as it helps us become aware of the effects of our activities the day before and to undo any remaining imbalances. During a session of pranayama we may notice, for example, that we feel a bit jangled from too much coffee the previous day, are heavy in the body from slow digestion or are full of leftover thoughts that are still worrying us. Taking 15 or 20 minutes for pranayma can help us regain equilibrium. It also enables the body to function more efficiently on an organic level by opening the chest and lungs, stimulating the diaphragm and facilitating digestion and elimination. Continue reading

Water yoga is low impact and gentle on the muscles and joints, making it perfect for the elderly, pregnant women and people with injuries or chronic conditions. Moving through various ranges of motion while submerged in water provides low-impact resistance to your muscles and may help alleviate symptoms of certain medical conditions, including arthritis, osteoporosis and tendonitis.

Doctors often recommend them for people with joint injuries, infections or surgeries as a way to stay fit and shorten recovery time. The soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water make it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. Water supports joints to encourage free movement, and may also act as resistance to help build muscle strength.

It provides resistance, which strengthens muscles and boosts cardio intensity. Water provides 12 times the resistance of air, so as you walk, you’re really strengthening and building muscle.
