Ballygowan have my back! They have recently launched their latest product Sparklingly Fruity - a fruit flavoured natural mineral water. Being the health conscious yogi that I am, I am delighted to have a tasty, low sugar content alternative to regular water. Mild dehydration can begin to compromise your health and stifle the effectiveness of your workout. Keeping on top of your water intake increases your metabolic rate, expands mental clarity and helps deliver nutrients to your muscles quickening the post-workout recovery process. So, naturally I am delighted to have this low calorie, healthier alternative to regular fizzy drinks, which I always steer clear of! Ballygowan are making it that bit easier to stay hydrated during my busy days teaching and working out. And not only is it great to have with you on the go, it's the perfect go-to for guests - all you need is some fancy glasses and garnish of your choice!
Being an avid yoga practitioner and teacher I have noticed the extreme effect that being dehydrated can have on your practice. For example, some of the things that I notice in my clients when they have a low water intake is tiredness, dizziness, they’re not sweating enough, and/or their muscles are cramping. All of these side effects are extremely distracting and can leave you unmotivated during your time in the studio. The mental part of the practice is what I encourage most in my classes. To be able to face the challenging poses and sequences one must be strong mentally and be completely present. I am delighted to have a tasty drink like Ballygowan's Sparklingly Fruity to keep my hydrated before and after my practice - now I can master those #yogagoals.
