I have been spending a lot of time thinking about the relationship between coffee, yoga and flexibility. I used to think yoga was all about stretching and flexibility. Most yoga poses demonstrate rather than develop flexibility. If you are stiff, you don’t need yoga. You need to stretch! A good stretching exercise is like how you managing weight loss with the consumption of diet pill. You have got to ‘eat right’ and not ‘eat less’. It is the same as ‘stretch right’ and the accompanying factor would be taking nutritional food.

Try to cut down on this food or maybe nil:

  1. Coffee – they contained caffeine that causes our senses to be over stimulated.
  2. Mucus producers – Dairy products, white rice, white sugar, refined bread, refined grains, honey

This are the two food which I know to gave you that stiff body. There should be more if you want to add on to my list.

Practise this healthy diet for flexibility:

  1. Replace dairy products with soya milk and brown sugar instead of white sugar.
  2. Drink more juices instead of can drinks, etc…
  3. Green stuff are good for you for example spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass
  4. Vitamin C

Ever wonder why yoga teachers are so flexible? I didn’t know this but without proper stretching exercises and proper nutrients, you can do yoga poses all day long and yet still be stiff as a board… now that is super depressing!
