Since it is St. Patrick’s Day I was feeling a big green. First thing that comes to mind is my favorite morning, midday, nighttime, anything treat…green tea. I have tried so many brands of green tea but this one is by far my favorite. Tazo Zen Green Tea to me is heaven in a cup.

I first got a cup of Zen at Starbucks. Believe it or not I hated it. Then, my mom brought it home and I gave it another shot. I left the tea bag in for the duration of the time I drank it and it tasted delicious! It is a mix of lemongrass and spearmint.

My favorite site All Women Stalk had an article titled 9 Amazing Facts About Green Tea. After reading that article I was convinced to drink green tea every day!

They listed 9 facts:

1.It Helps Lower Cholesteral

2.It May Help Prevent Cancer

3.It May Help Prevent Heart Disease

4.It Can Help Prevent Stroke

5.It Helps Stave Off Dementia

6.It May Help Control Weight

7.It’s Power Comes From….Antioxidants

Check out All Women Stalk’s article and try out Tazo’s Zen Green Tea.

P.S. Dont be led astray from the urine yellow color the tea is. It’s normal!

If you follow my twitter @healthyhabitsbk you would know I tried yoga for the first time this week. I was petrified of going and looking silly since I never practiced yoga before. But, I felt the completely opposite. Yoga not only is relaxing it is fun and really easy.

I found Yoga Inspired online. It’s a small studio in Pitman, NJ ran by Denise Ashcraft.

My first class I went to was called Evening Blend Yoga and the instructor was Malini Patel. She was excellent. It was really nice and comforting that she made sure the beginners, like myself, didn’t feel out of place or awkward doing different moves. She gave a great piece of advice, that was to listen to your body. If a movement hurts simply don’t do it! That made a huge different in knowing my limits in yoga.

I enjoyed the class so much I signed up for two weeks of unlimited classes. I signed up for my second class for today. It was called Sunday Reboot Yoga. I had to wake up early to go but it was so worth it. Taking a yoga class was such a great start to my day and I am so glad I did it. Today the instructor’s name was Laura Maron. She was also great at catering to the beginners strength as well as the more advanced students in the practice.

I would strongly recommend to try yoga at Yoga Inspired! The have plenty of classes to take at a variety of times. Yoga Inspired is featured in Pitman, NJ at 51 South Broad Street. It is in the old bank next to Guillermo’s Restaurant. I really enjoyed it and hope you do too.

Namaste.
