Five Things You Can Do In-between Classes to Get Way Better Results From Your Yoga and Martial Arts.

Number 5. The Neti pot
Ever since we started teaching Yoga and Martial arts classes in Edmonton over 30 years ago we have always understood that the entire point of this work is to be as healthy as we possibly can. The more healthy we are the more benefit we get from our time in class and the faster we progress. We get an amazing positive feedback loop when classes support our lives and our lives support our progress in classes. 
Let’s start with the Neti pot, from the Yoga tradition, just because it’s so easy and so very good.
Have you ever seen one of these Aladdin’s lamp-looking things? You can find them for cheap in your local whole foods store, yoga supply store, pharmacy, or, of course, online. 
If it’s a new idea to you it might seem bizarre or “gross” - I remember thinking “what on earth am I doing?” the first time I tried it, but now it’s just part of my daily routine. I consider it essential hygiene, like brushing my teeth, and I love it - so refreshing! I do it at least twice a day.
I’m willing to bet you’ll feel the same way, and if you suffer from allergies or respiratory or sinus issues or if you live with animals or work in less than clean air you might find this simple practice to be pivotal for your health. 
I can’t overstate the value of the breath in Yoga and Karate so when you come to class with your nasal passages open and clear you get much more benefit. And if you’re breathing better you’re living better! 
See you in class!
