Maya

Nadi Shodhana is a type of yogic breath regulation, which can come in very handy when you are feeling anxious or stressed, experiencing a panic attack with heart palpitations, having difficulties falling asleep or if you are preparing for meditation or for the physical practice of yoga. It can be practiced any time during the day, whether you are on a break, waiting for the kids after dropping them off at after school activities, in bed before going to sleep or any other place you feel comfortable. It only takes up to 5 minutes to complete.

Why Yoga? What are the benefits

April 6, 2020
Maya

No matter what the question is, once you get to know yoga, it becomes the answer. It may even be the answer for stress heads battling with weight loss. Just thinking about the word “yoga” almost makes me feel instantly more relaxed. It makes me think about my personal yoga practice,and how chilled and calm I feel during and after it. At the same time, I am also very aware of other types of emotions different people associate with the practice of yoga.. “Intimidating, difficult, too challenging” are just a few that come to mind. While some people can’t touch their toes, are overweight or even uncoordinated, there is still no reason for them or anyone who can master the simple art of conscious breathing to miss out on the incredible benefits making friends with yoga can bring into their lives.

Life’s too short for bad coffee

July 6, 2016
Maya

Through my studies, observing my patients and self – experience, I eventually came to the conclusion that life’s too short to waste your time feeling guilty, follow highly restrictive diets and to not have a good time; I believe it is definitely too short for bad coffee, peeling carrots and counting calories too! Once we learn our unique ‘body language’ and give our bodies the healthy, wholesome foods they need, we eventually achieve the healthy (physically and emotionally), sexy body we desire which we need to emotionally nourish with plenty of love. Read my published article to find out how to reach your health, weight and wellness potential.

KIS Israeli Hummus

April 15, 2020
Maya

Mmmmmm… Hummus… Growing up in Israel, practically eating this stuff from birth, you’d think I’d be over hummus by now. But, to be honest, I still, to this day, get hummus cravings on a regular basis. No wonder, as this popular Israeli dip is so delicious, nutritious, filling and extremely easy to prepare. Over in Israel and some other Middle Eastern countries, ‘Hummus Dip’ (or, as Israelis call it, ‘Hummus Salad’ or ‘Spread’) can quite often be eaten as a main meal, believe it or not, along with pita pocket bread, salad, and sometimes sauteed mushrooms or lightly roasted pine nuts or falafels.‍

The other great thing about this deliciously nutritious smoothie is that it’s low reactive; it is completely dairy and wheat free, which will leave your tummy feeling satisfied but never bloated, uncomfortable or tender.
