Yoga is the gift of India to the world, thought to be the union of the Soul with God. Yoga equips one with a sound mind, peaceful spirit, healthy body and cures diseases. It does all of this in various ways.

October was Lupus Awareness month and I handed off some information to my Lupus Warriors that they could use for the months and years ahead.

The main areas that Yoga benefits everyone including persons with Lupus, are improved Flexibility and Mobility, Physical Energy, Pain Management, Stress Management, Mood and Coping, Cardiovascular and Respiratory Efficiency, Circulation, Strength and Stamina.

Other than relieving symptoms of Lupus, Yoga also helps with Insomnia, Strengthens the Immune system, Improves the Digestive process and Calms Anxiety.

Therefore Yoga helps to achieve and maintain an overall Healthy Lifestyle.

Lupus Awareness should go beyond the month of October and I would like my Readers to achieve and maintain a Healthy Lifestyle, so I found Yoga Practices in Jamaica that I recommend near you.

Pedal and Wheel Fitness has Reopened!

Pedal and Wheel Fitness, the Certified Spinning Facility that was previously located in Barbican Business Centre is back! It has reopened at a location that is by Appointment Only.

School is now in session! Classes started on Tuesday and payment is due at the beginning of each term. Term 1 ends on December 15 and focuses on Aerobic training, in particular, strength, endurance and muscular endurance. Classes run from Monday to Friday each week at either 5:30am or 9:00am in the mornings and at 6:30pm on some evenings. Some of the experienced team of instructors that you may have been familiar with from the Barbican location are back as well and you can expect their usual hands-on guidance. Drop-in classes cost $3000JMD, but packages are available for the term depending on the amount of classes you choose to do each week. The more you spin, the less you pay!

Owner, Joanne Adams had a showing of the new space last Saturday and I can’t wait to do a class! She has coloured lighting that changes according to the zone you are in and the room is cool with the scent of lavender. It’s fully blocked in from the outdoors with a projected screen to show how you are riding and more!

Gentlemen, if you have an important football match or sporting event to watch, you have no excuses because it will be blown up for you on the screen while you ride.

Are you ready to Wheel and Come Again?! Get your Spinning on with Pedal and Wheel Fitness!

How Dairy Products Can Help You Lose Weight

Photo: en.wikipedia.org

Many persons rely on Quinoa, Oats and other good sources of Carbs/Fibre to lose weight. 

However, Dairy products contain both Protein and Calcium that not only help with bone and muscle mass but with weight loss as well because the by-products of Calcium help to break down fat.

Stick to the healthy Dairy products though, such as Skimmed Milk, Fat-free Cheese slices, 90/100 calorie Greek Yogurt etc.

Enjoy your Dairy!
