Nutritional Tips: In the Heat of Summer

Summertime Nutrition Made Easy!

We all may be thinking about that hot summer bod and being bathing suit ready, but more importantly we have to understand that Summer is a unique time of year where are bodies have very specific needs. The heat of summer along with our activities call for extra hydration, extra light food and extra recovery. Here are some of our go-to nutrition and health tips and tricks:

  • WATER | Drink more than you think is enough. Utilize an extra large water bottle. Add flavor such as cucumbers, strawberry and fresh mint, lemon or lime. Be sure to ice it up to help cool you down.
  • FRUIT | Fruit has water in it! Enjoy cold, fresh fruit over sugary snack alternatives. The antioxidants will help to keep you healthy and keep your skin glowing after all of that sun!
  • SALADS | Enjoy fresh salads that incorporate a diverse array of ingredients. Include greens, nuts, veggies, berries and cheese if you like! The nutrients will help to keep your body happy without weighing you down.
  • DRINK YOUR MEALS | Smoothies are an incredible way to stay hydrated, cool off and get a lot of nutrition in one serving. Try different smoothies so that you don’t get bored. This week, make tropical smoothies, green smoothies next week, and berry smoothies the week after.

Mindfulness Tips

Finding Your Zen

Zen is…

Now take a deep breath and feel your life force and feel how beautiful it is to be alive.


All levels Vinyasa Flow

Meditation brings wisdome.

When we meditate through yoga, our bodies get to connect with our minds and spirits.

This sacred connection allows us to be more in tune with our truth and our path. We can experience life in many ways, that is our freedom. With yoga, we an experience life from a place of connectedness, inner peace and alignment. A life experienced in this way, is a life with less friction and stress. It is a practice and we will ebb and flow through it. It will take commitment to achieve this. The commitment does not have to look one way at all times. Your practice will change as your life changes and as your body changes. There will be times where relaxation yoga is the key part of your practice and other times where vinyasa is your go to. The more you learn and experience, the more you will see that yoga is here to help you through this beautiful journey of life.
