We all have “gunk” in our body. At least that’s what I like to call it. You know what I’m talking about; the trigger point, the sensitive area, the limited range of motion. By bringing fresh movement into our body, we can find some of this gunk and literally release it. This is one of many reasons why I love incorporating a yoga practice into my daily life. Oh the benefits! Yet after this experience, how can we continue to nourish our body and mind? When thinking about what to eat, we want something that is easily digestible, soothing to the stomach, yet energizing, to satisfying. Try this post-yoga smoothie to balance your body after you’ve defunked the gunk with yoga.
