Happy New Year everyone! I want to apologize for not sending out a newsletter and yoga video last week. Kayla, Scott and I are back in Austin, Texas for the holidays and we have totally been absorbed in reconnecting with family, friends and food.
Travelling around the world for the past six months has made arriving back home kind of surreal. It’s almost like we never left. Except, since we rented out our home, we are living with my parents for two weeks. It reminds me of coming home from college over winter break.
Immediately, upon touching down in Austin, we headed strait for our favorite local hamburger joint, P. Terry’s, and enjoyed the finest food America has to offer. Kayla literally sighed as she breathed in the familiar smell of her favorite meal there, grilled cheese and french fries.
Since being home, we have been in a food frenzy, hopping from one beloved restaurant to the other. Within the first 24-hours we covered BBQ, Tex-Mex and Asian. Sprinkle in gatherings with family and friends and holiday festivities, it has been a non-stop flurry of indulgences since we arrived.
I don’t know about you, but my body isn’t used to such decadence for days on end. And after a while it begins to rebel with signs of indigestion. And if I don’t address the issue, my mood starts to go south pretty fast.
Surprisingly, 90% of your serotonin is made in your gut, not your brain. That means happy belly, happy life. So in preparation for the New Year, I thought I would offer a yoga class that stimulates healthy digestion, so you can “flush out” the old with a different form of release and start fresh and light.
This week’s 21-minute gentle yoga class, Yoga for Digestion, is all about moving all the junk out of your body. Through twists, side bending and squeezing the organs, this sequence will enhance digestion, release toxins and stagnant energy and get things moving in the right direction.
Yoga with Meditation Mutha is for everyBODY. Join me in this opportunity to cleanse the body, spirit and mood in more ways than one!
