Todays post is a guest post written by Lindsay McCusky. Lindsay is a Moksha Yoga teacher here in Montreal, as well as a restorative yoga teacher.
Last year Lindsay created an awesome smoothie challenge within the Moksha community. This year we are teaming up to bring you the Health is Happiness 30 Day Smoothie Challenge. I am very excited to be working with Lindsay on promoting the challenge. If you are into yoga there is another great challenge happening in the month of May called Grow Your Yoga.
Maybe you are up for both!?
May 1st we begin our 30 day yoga challenge at Moksha yoga West Island, NDG and Montreal. In addition to the 30 day challenge, we also have another campaign running called Grow Your Yoga; a campaign designed to help “grow your yoga” on and off your mat while raising money to support the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.
Often we think that yoga can only be practiced in a studio when in reality you can practice yoga absolutely anywhere you choose! I passionately believe Yoga is more about the inner connection to self in any given moment or situation. On that note, I know that being intimately connected to yourself helps you become more aware of your body and your health. During the 30 Day Challenge, you are “challenged” to make it onto your mat for 30 days. During those 30 days, you can experience some incredible changes which is why Kieran and I have decided to partner up. Together, we would like to support and help you with what you are putting in your body.
I created a smoothie challenge last year and felt amazing after the 30 days and also got great feedback. I know when I am tired I don’t always make optimal food choices or if I am in a rush I might grab something to eat which in the end physically and mentally lowers my energy . Throughout the years I have struggled with an eating disorder and know that I am not alone. I know how important is it to “nourish your soul”. I strongly believe it starts with what you put in your body. Proper nutrition is key to a healthy and happy life, hence “Health is Happiness” – good one Kieran!!! Truthfully, the combination of yoga and smoothies has helped transform my health. So let’s get together this month and support one another to live a Healthier and Happier life!!!
With the smoothie support page on FB, Kieran and I will be here to help along the way with recipes and tips. Let’s do this, come sweat it up at Moksha yoga. I am crazy excited for this. We are confident only good things can come out of taking care of your health, surrounding yourself with positive people, and coming together as a loving community to help make the world a better place!
