The cold and the rain, changeable weather, and snow and ice can all weaken the body’s defenses. Nothing better than a nice hot cup of tea when we come home from a day spent in winter’s chill!
On our blog, we introduce several of our ayurvedic herbal and spiced teas that are ideal companions for the cold season.
There is also a special yoga exercise associated with each tea to see you through the winter days.
Singing, speaking, swallowing, tasting. Our throat has a lot to cope with. This soothing, fruity sweet tea is our way of saying thank you to our throats. Liquorice and mullein combined with sweet cinnamon, orange peel and fennel make this delicious, soothing tea enjoyable throughout the day.
Simple Yoga for Balancing and Strengthening the Body
Be on hands and knees. Raise left leg and right arm (keep straight). Hold for 3 minutes. Inhale and raise opposite arm and leg. Hold for 2.5 minutes.
Breath is essential to all life. The eucalyptus in YOGI TEA® Breathe Deep gives us the impression that our whole chest is opening from within, allowing prana to expand deeper inside us. We can breathe again. Thyme and basil combined with warming cinnamon and ginger stimulate and add delicious flavour.
Easy Yoga to Open the Lungs
Stand up straight with your legs slightly apart. Inhale fully while raising your arms up straight over your head and lean back slightly. Exhale fully as you bend forward from the waist, bringing your arms towards the ground and your upper torso towards your legs. This posture is called uttanasana. Continue this smooth movement for 1-3 minutes. Then stand up straight with the arms relaxed by your sides, take a few deep breaths and relax.
In our next post, we will show you which YOGI TEA®s enhance your sense of wellbeing.
Snuggle up and enjoy!
