Remember how Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai took Bollywood by storm, how lead actor Hrithik Roshan made fitness a fashion statement expressed in dance? This God of Dance lives, breathes and sleeps dance…his innovative dance moves captured the popular imagination and led many fans to take to dance as a way of life almost! He is arguably one of the best specimens of the perfect male body that Bollywood has seen. Another celebrity is Katrina Kaif who is an amazing dancer besides having a perfect figure.

If you are one of those people who are passionate about a healthy lifestyle, the gym is likely to be your temple. You also try to integrate elements into your life that create harmony between your mind, body and soul…to create a happier, healthier you. But come on, do admit it, it is sometimes a quite a drag to drag yourself to the gym every day isn’t it!? Why not dance instead?

Did you know that dance is one form of holistic exercise that integrates all the elements that make for an agile body in a healthy mind – cardio, muscle group workouts, floor exercises to help create flexibility, balance and strength?

Skip the Gym. Dance. It helps you

–          burn calories

–          tone your body

–          lose weight

–          relax

–          and have fun.

Most important, dance gives you peace of mind and leads to pure happiness. Take your pick, you cannot go wrong – Ballroom, Jazz, Hip-hop, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Salsa, Bollywood you name it.

Research has proved that dancing also keeps dementia and Alzheimer’s at bay, helps stave off illnesses and improves well-being and confidence, since it is a social, group activity!

You can enhance the benefits of dance by opting to have organic teas, coffees and juices, health supplements like Spirulina, Wheatgrass Powder, Whey Protein, Multivitamins , carry your dance outfits in tote bags  and so much more, all from Natural Mantra!

Calm your mind with the Shavasana (Corpse) Yoga Pose

Nurturing our bodies for optimal health is something we all strive for. But calming our mind is also very essential to maintain a mind and body balance. And Yoga is the most natural way to achieve that harmoniously.

According to Yoga Journal, the corpse pose, or Shavasana, is one of complete relaxation that can help calm you down as well as relieve mild depression and headaches.

How to do the Shavasana Pose:

Begin by sitting on the floor with bent knees and feet on the floor.
Next, lift your pelvis off the floor, and use your hands to push the pelvis toward the tailbone before coming to rest it on the floor again.
While breathing in, push through your heels to stretch out both legs. Allow your groin to relax as you make sure your feet are angled out from the spine.
Now, allow your tailbone and your torso to relax, with your hands behind the back of your head to keep it from lying down with your spine.
Finally, lay your head down, staying in this position for about five minutes.

Summer brings refreshing news & natural goodness!

ImageSummer brings refreshing news & natural goodness!

It’s summer time and you’re itching to discard your jeans for shorts! But summer can be harsh on the skin and body so it’s important that you learn to take care of yourself.

Every season needs a particular type of body care. You need to follow health care tips as per the season. During summer there is lot of heat persistent in the atmosphere, thus we need to take body care accordingly.

BODY CARE TIPS FOR SUMMER SEASON – 

Skin Care & Clothes

1. The preliminary step for protection from sun’s heat is wear clothes that cover your entire body when you go out in the sun. This protects the body from excessive heat.

2. Wear light color cotton clothes that are loose enough to provide proper aeration. Light color clothes reflect the sun’s rays and reduce their intensity and harm due to the exposure.

3. Wear the cap or tie a scarf whenever you go out in the sun.

Sun Protection

4. You need sun protection to avoid tanned and dry skin. Sun damage can happen whenever you come in contact with harmful UV rays- if you go outside, be sure to use a high SPF sunscreen and reapply it frequently and liberally.

5. Do use safe sunscreen lotions to protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays emitted from sun.

Fluids

6. In summer excessive sweating is common so you are likely to suffer from rashes, rosacea, acne on the face as well as your back, tanning, prickly heat, hair damage, skin infections and sunburn.

Increase the amount of the fluids you drink daily as body needs a lot of fluid during the summer season as the body fluids are lost due to the prominent sweating due to the heat.

Diet

7. Eat a balanced diet as digestion problems are common in the heat. Drink a lot of fresh juices and eat fruit.

Sleep

8. Sleep well to keep your health up to date. About 7 to 8 hours of sleep is necessary during the summer season as it helps all the body processes to take place properly.

Enjoy your summer holidays safely, have fun and be happy & sunny!
