Today’s post is coming to you from Leigh over at theleighryan.com. Leigh is a yoga teacher and fellow group fitness instructor. 

Mindfulness.  That word comes up a lot lately, with yoga becoming more mainstream and available and even appearing more in popular culture.

But does the physical practice of yoga have anything to do with what you eat?? It sure does.

With a consistent yoga practice, we become more in tune with the physical sensations in our body.  Some days, utkatasana (chair pose) may feel easy but maybe not the day after a leg day workout! Taking it a step further and off the mat, we also start to become more aware of how we feel, physically and mentally.

So much of how we feel – energy levels, satiety – relates to how we are fueling and feeding our bodies.  This idea of eliminating and doing a hard reset with the Whole30 will put you back in charge of your health and at the end of the 30 days, you’ll be so much more aware of how certain foods make you feel.  When you are eating the best foods for your body, you’ll find that your mind is clearer, you have more energy and overall, just feel healthier.  Coupling that with a consistent yoga practice, you’ll reap even more benefits, like reduced stress and anxiety as well as increased energy.

Taking it a step further than just WHAT we are eating, we can incorporate mindfulness in HOW we eat.  Slowing down. Chewing thoroughly.  Eating as much as it takes to be full but not OVER eat just because there is more TO eat.

I can’t wait to share some short yoga practice videos with you as you move through your Whole30 experience. By the end of 30 days, not only will you have completed the Whole30 but you’ll also develop a home yoga practice as well!

You can read more about Whole30 HERE on Leigh’s blog. We would love for you to join us for 30 days of mindful eating and movement, with support in our private Facebook group.

  1. The Whole30 sounds like something I am going to have to check out and share with my sisters. Yoga is something I have dabbled in but never stuck too. I want this is the year to be the year I really make healthy changes. Thanks for sharing the information and can’t wait for more.

  2. I keep hearing how awesome this whole 30 thing is! I really need to read more about it to see if it’s a fit for me

  3. I have heard about this whole 30 and people are really loving it! I have done yoga for a while now to simply relax in the morning and get myself moving in the right way. It helps so much setting the tone for my day.

  4. Sounds like you are off to a good start this year! Whole30 is something I want to try one day soon. I have never been very good at Yoga, but I will try that too, and hopefully I will not hurt myself with a pose gone wrong!

  5. I love that you’ve hash tagged #mindfulness I’ve been so into learning about how to center yourself with yoga and mindfulness. I’ve heard so many things about Whole 30, that I may need to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve already given up gluten and dairy so I’m already on the right track.
