With some classes started early July I'm sending this email a few days earlier than usual so you can take advantage of the reminder to register for classes.

I truly want to thank everyone who emailed me the past newsletter I was looking for last month.  It was heart warming to know so many of you not only read them, but keep them on file!  I hope I can continue to deliver the information that keeps you reading.....

Summer is finally upon us.  As you may know, July and August are slower months, and we cut many of the classes that we normally offer.  We don't offer any kids programs during the summer, however, we do still have several adult classes that may interest you.  Please be sure to check our website at http://www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our class page at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.

Our Yoga for larger bodies continues at Greentree Village.  Sadly Lisa is unable to continue teaching them, but Brenda is eager to lead you as we begin a new set for summer.  The new name for the class is Love Your Body!  Brenda is excited to see you Wednesdays from 7 - 8pm.

In this issue you can enjoy the strength and centeredness the Tree pose will bring you, then find out why Yoga is better for your memory than aerobic exercise.  Learn how your diet affects your bones.  Bake some fabulous nutritious muffins to take with you when you accompanying your family and entertain your kids at the best hot spots this summer.


Again, be sure to visit our website at www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our class page at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm to find out what's happening and where and remember to register early!!

Eating an Alkaline Diet for Bone Health

For several years, there has been discussion about the influence foods can have on the acid-alkaline balance (or pH level) of blood in the body and on health, especially bone health. The theory is that a diet consisting mostly of food metabolized to acids—such as protein, processed foods, and cereals—may increase the acidity of blood. To counteract this change in pH, alkaline calcium compounds may leach from bones making them weak and brittle.

Thus, the dietary advice would be to eat a diet high in alkaline-producing foods—such as fruits and vegetables, which are metabolized to alkaline bicarbonates—to maintain a healthy pH level and preserve bone mass and density.

To explore the ideas behind the alkaline-acid balance theory, let’s start by reviewing some science about bones.  To continue reading, click here.

Yoga Boosts Memory and Focus More Than Exercise
www.yogauonline.com

Yoga may improve brain functioning more than aerobic exercise, at least as measured immediately after workout. This is the conclusion of a new study recently published in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health.

The small study looked at 30 female college students, who didn’t practice yoga regularly, and compared them on a number of cognitive tests after they participated in a 20-minute yoga practice and jogged on a treadmill. The researchers found that cognitive performance on tests measuring memory and focus was significantly superior after the yoga practice as compared with both baseline and aerobic exercise.

Aerobic exercise is generally considered to be beneficial for brain health, so how to researchers explain the difference?
