Balance your prana by eating well before and after yoga!

Many people in the holistic living community have had to steer clear of protein powders due to their highly processed ingredients, the use of synthetic sweeteners. For those looking for an organic, gluten-free, vegetarian protein powder, look no further than Only Protein.

Yoga is one of the best ways to workout—it balances the body and mind while also reducing stress, burning calories, and building a sense of community for regular practitioners. Yogis and yoginis will tell you, it is called the “practice of yoga” because yoga is a journey, and not a destination. It’s a form of fitness that allows for constant growth and development both physically and mentally, making it perhaps the world’s most balanced way to break a sweat.

For those interested in maintaining true balance, many will add raw diet or vegetarianism to their practice of yoga. Many more will also take on the practice of meditation, while others still will use yoga as their time to decompress and release the stress and anxiety of daily work and home life. For those who practice yoga, the word “prana” is a commonly used phrase. Prana essentially means energy or life force, and it is one of the most basic key focal points of yoga. The idea is to balance prana, and this is achieved through breathing, working through yoga poses with lucidity, not forcefulness.

A key part of balancing prana outside of the yoga studio is by ensuring that what goes into your body is made from quality ingredients, and Only Protein meets every possible standard to this end. As a non-GMO, USDA organic food source, and a soy-free source of protein, Only Protein meal replacement and protein powder are a great addition to the yoga lifestyle.
