The perfect match: Which food for which Asana?


yoga pose

Bridge Pose -
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana

The Bridge pose is a great front hip joints opener while also it strengthens your spine, opens chest, and improves your spinal flexibility in addition to stimulating your thyroid. This pose brings many benefits to your body, such as relief from stress, anxiety, insomnia and it helps you with your depression.

PAIR it with - Avocado contains tryptophan, folate AND omega-3. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that helps combat inflammation in the brain and also helps regulate our brain's neurotransmitters.. We recommend the Lemur Leap Frog from HOME - Eat to Live.

the downward dog yoga pose
Downward-facing Dog -
Adho Mukha Shvanasana

Downward-facing Dog pose lengthens and decompresses the spine, stretches the hamstrings, strengthens your arms, flushes your brain with fresh oxygen and calms your mind.

PAIR it with - fresh fish, which contains Omega 3 to help power your mind for a busy day. We recommend the Baked Sustainable Wild Caught Teriyaki Halibut Salad Rice Bowl from Supafood.

the Warrior Yoga pose

Warrior II - Virabhadrasana II

The Warrior II is great for those of you who have had a hectic day at work and just need to relax your body and mind. It strengthens the muscles of your knees and feet, it stretches your shoulders and spine, and it improves your focus.

PAIR it with - Kale, which contain lots of vitamin K which helps to strengthen muscle. We recommend the Organic Kale Salad from Locofama.

Triangle-yoga-pose
Triangle - Trikonasana

The Triangle improves the flexibility of your spine; it helps with the alignment of your shoulders; it relieves back pain and stiffness in the neck area.

PAIR it with - fresh berries, which contain anthocyanins, antioxidant compounds that fight inflammation. We recommend the Acai Bowl from Mana! Fast Slow Food.
