Bharat Chauhan New Delhi,
If you haven’t been practicing yoga or have never tried it, now is the time to
consider doing it. And it’s not just because of its physical benefits such as muscle
conditioning, weight loss, increased stamina, and flexibility. Yoga is also great in
de-stressing you, helping you achieve optimum mental health and inner peace.
Yoga strengthens your immune system, helps you have better posture, relieve pain,
and improve your sleep. While there are already many benefits to practicing yoga,
infusing it with a Yog Maya Chai will magnify its benefits.
Similar to yoga, yog maya chai has many health benefits and can help you
detoxify and reduce your stress and anxiety. Rich in natural antioxidants, tea
boosts your metabolism, your immune system, and reduces inflammation. Plus, its
aroma and taste, and the soothing feeling when your sipping tea makes it a perfect
match to your pre- and post-yoga practice.
Some of the well-known benefits of combining tea and yoga practice are:
▪ It helps relieve stress since it’s a mind-body practice.
▪ It helps with pain management as it increases the healing process for those
with chronic pain, muscle soreness, and stiffness.
▪ It helps improve your sleep patterns as both yoga and tea have a calming
effect and sleep-inducing benefits.
▪ It strengthens your immune system as yoga and tea promote circulation, as
well as it stimulates the four main physiological systems which are
interconnected to the immune system: digestive, circulatory, endocrine and
And now, with your newfound awareness of the benefits of combining the two, here
are four yoga-tea combinations you must try.
Yog maya chai has all the below herb which gives individual benefit to us
Active yoga practice and black tea in yog maya chai
If you’re planning to do a Power Yoga, a vigorous Vinyasa, or Ashtanga, then
drinking black tea before your workout is a great idea. Since you would want to
have better focus and sustained energy during an active yoga—black tea should be
your pick-me-up drink before your session. Particularly, if you often feel
light-headed after a vigorous Vinyasa practice, the caffeine in black tea can help a
lot as it improves your circulation.
Black tea is not just a caffeinated tea, it improves circulation, and stamina helps
burn calories, and reduces cardiovascular problems. To reap its full benefits, limit
drinking it with milk and sugar.
Hot yoga practice and mint in yog maya chai
Hot yoga practice like Bikram usually requires a room to be typically heated at a
temperature of 95-105 degrees. This is to promote flexibility, detoxifies muscles
and organs, as well as prevents injury. Or if you’re practicing yoga during a hot
summer class, the perfect match for hot yoga practice is mint tea.
Sipping a cup of mint tea after sweating a lot after your hot yoga class can help you
transition back to the real world by calming and cooling your senses. Mint tea
activates the cold-sensitive receptors of your body’s cells thereby bringing a cooling
sensation. There’s a variety of mint teas you can try, such as peppermint tea, mint
hibiscus, and mint chai.
Meditative yoga and green tea in yog maya chai
Meditative yoga practice like Hatha or Kundalini assists you to achieve a calm and
meditative mindset. These yoga practices often involve long-held poses, chanting,
and meditation. To better cultivate calmness and improve your focus, it helps to sip
a cup of green tea before or after your session.
Steeping some loose leaf green tea is a go-to brews for yogis before meditation
session because this tea is rich in healthy polyphones and catechism. These
immune-boosting antioxidants found in green tea fight heart disease, certain types
of cancer, and inflammatory diseases. A freshly brewed cup of this tea will surely
enhance your focus and concentration thus assisting you in getting the best out of
your meditative yoga session.
Healing yoga practice and ginger tea in yog maya chai
Healing yoga practice such as Iyengar focuses on the alignment of your body, injury
recovery, and joint health. This practice requires you to have a slow and deliberate
pace, and more long-held poses. This type of healing yoga is perfect for
rehabilitating underused or injured joints, which is why it’s perfect to pair it with
herbal teas like ginger tea.
Ginger tea, as well as turmeric, are great anti-inflammatory herbs. The slightly
spicy taste of ginger helps you to chill as it brings a cooling and soothing sensation
too. Other pain-relieving and healing herbal teas you can try are cinnamon,
chamomile, and lavender tea.
Yoga & Yog Maya chai effect on body
Yoga and tea are the perfect pairing, and have historically been used together to
promote health and well-being. Some yoga studios even serve hot tea following
each yoga session! Drinking tea first thing in the morning is such a lovely, warming
ritual (especially if you live somewhere that’s a bit chilly) and helps to promote
good digestion and gut health.
We’re constantly rediscovering old traditions when it comes to living a healthy life
— the most popular being yoga and tea. Both have been used for thousands of
years to improve and restore health all around the world. If you’re constantly
suffering from fatigue, back pain, headaches and stress, your body is trying to tell
you something. It’s telling you to step back, relax, and start over.
If you want to give your life and body a hard reset without spending a fortune,
consider adding Yog maya chai (35 herbs & spices) and a form of yoga to your life.
By combining the two into your everyday routine, you’ll bring balance, energy, and
longevity to your life in just a few short weeks!
