Yogi Tips to Weighing Less and Living Better

New York - Stress eating is not the answer to depression, sadness or chronic mood swings, and yet, it is very common for people to use food as a healing mechanism. How come? How do we fight it? What is the better solution? Donnalynn Civello says, “It is through an in-depth understanding of our relationship to food that we begin to empower ourselves to make the right choices for our personal growth and development.” New York Yoga is proud to host Donnalynn’s workshop: A Yoga Body in Balance on Wednesday, May 26th, 7:00pm – 8:30pm.

We’ve all been there. It’s been a long day, work was awful, and you’re stressed out. Do you turn to the healthy dinner plans you came up with earlier in the week or the left over chocolate cake waiting in the refrigerator? The answer’s easy right – the stressful day justifies the chocolate cake. You earned it and you’ll feel better… right? Wrong!

Stress eating, or emotional attachment to food, can exasperate the stressors you are trying to resolve. Controlling your diet can lead to a happier, healthier you, and can be a power tool for self-transformation. Better understanding our relationship with food allows us to take a closer look at emotional, mental and physical disharmony.

Our diet plays a big role in our ability to bring about balance on and off our mats. A yoga body is a clean body. Unfortunately, today's daily diet is filled with toxins that inhibit the body from achieving an optimum state of emotional, mental and physical balance which is required for any successful yoga practice. Come learn how you can get your yoga body in balance with Donnalynn at New York Yoga!
