A year after the first International Day of Yoga was celebrated the world over, yoga enthusiasts were back again Tuesday morning lunging forward, raising and stretching their arms, and slowly inhaling and exhaling.
The day was introduced when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi successfully lobbied the United Nations to dedicate 24 hours to the ancient discipline in September 2013.
The benefits of yoga are established, but if you eat correctly after your workout, you will stretch those benefits even further. Every morning when you get out of bed, you should stretch. Setting the tone for the day, you are setting a precedent of discipline.
Once that routine is established, you won’t be able to imagine your days without yoga!
High protein foods are very important to keep your muscles from being too sore after your yoga workout. Lean proteins like boneless skinless chicken breast or tuna are great, healthy options. You might be surprised where you can find protein.
2 tablespoons of peanut butter has 8 grams of protein.
