Sniff the air....go ahead....do it.  Can you smell Spring right around the corner?  I can, and I can't wait.  And we've got some great classes in store to keep you fit and happy as the sun approaches and temperatures begin to warm.

Coming back is Baby and Me Yoga.  Enjoy some time with other moms while working to get your body back into shape.  No need to worry about finding a sitter, because your little one is right there with you!  These classes are best suited for pre-mobile babies.

Brand new is Yoga for the Mind.  By adding this to your regime of self care, utilizing stress-reducing tools, breath work and imagery you'll learn how to stop the monkey chatter, refocus and find inner balance.

Be sure to check out all our classes at www.intoyoga.ca or www.intoyoga.ca/classes.

To keep your tummy feeling good and strong, we're showing you how to curl up like a ball and improve your digestion.

When you sweat, you lose vital electrolytes and it's important to refuel and rehydrate.  We'll explain it more here and introduce you to a new refreshing drink to help you replace those lost nutrients.

It can be hard sometimes to get men into a Yoga class.  Lance Johnson is going to tell you about his experience with Yoga, what lured him to check it out and why he stays.

For moms and dads who are preparing to meet their newborn for the first time, we know sometimes it can leave you speechless when they arrive.  So we've included an article that will give you some ideas of what to say when you greet your bundle of joy.

And of course, our monthly recipe is going leave your mouth watering.  Check it out!

We hope your enjoying our newsletter. Be sure to visit our website regularly at www.intoyoga.ca to keep up to date with classes.

Why Electrolytes Are So Important

When you sweat you lose more than just water, you lose vital electrolytes. Refueling and rehydrating after intense training is second nature for some athletes. However, not everyone realizes the importance of replenishing key electrolytes lost through perspiration, and that it can make or break performance.

Electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, are electrically charged minerals that travel through the blood and extracellular fluid. They regulate the body’s hydration, blood pH, blood pressure, recovery of damaged tissues, and nerve and muscle function. Electrolyte levels are tightly controlled within a strict concentration range by the kidneys and a variety of hormones.

While all electrolytes are important, special attention should be paid to maintaining sodium and potassium levels to protect against muscular and neurological deficits that can hinder performance.

 Five Ways Yoga is Changing My Life (From a Male's Perspective)
 

Not long ago, I thought yoga was for girls. Striking an awkward pose on a mat looked geeky -- something a big 6'6" competitive guy like me would have nothing in common with. When my wife bought a yoga mat and an instructional DVD and tried following along at home, it all looked even more boring. Was I missing something?

The mat went to the back of the closet. Still, something about it I wanted. I wanted the flexibility, the ease of motion these yogis displayed so fluently. Throughout my late teens, I grew quickly; somehow, my sciatica nerve was pinched during the growth spurts. If I sat too long, the pain became sharp, shooting down my legs. Over time, my quads tensed up to bear the pain. To relax while sitting, my muscles learned to automatically tense up. In my 20s, I made some dietary changes to bring the inflammation down, eliminating inflammatory dairy products and welcoming in anti-inflammatory spices like turmeric. Even though the pain had subsided, the tenseness remained, restricting my flexibility and range of movement. To continue reading, click here.

25 Things to Say to Your Newborn

Some religions have special prayers that are meant to be whispered in baby’s ear at the moment of birth. Most moms and dads wind up saying whatever is on their mind at that moment. It can be an incredibly moving experience, no matter how your baby joins your family, be it birth or having your baby placed in your arms for the first time after birth.

Some doctors or midwives also have traditions. This may include special wishes for your baby as you push. Some particularly inspired practitioners sing to every baby at every birth. If this is something that sounds like a tradition that your family would like to start, consider various songs that you would want to incorporate. Will you have the same song for every baby? Will you choose a song with every birth? Perhaps you will choose whatever moves you at that moment.  To find 25 things to say when greeting your newborn, click here.

Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It's a miracle, and the dance...is a celebration of that miracle."
