Happy New Year from KL Yoga

happy new year

A Happy New Year to all you readers out there! May 2008 be a wonderful year for you!

I have decided to kick off the new year with a new look! With a little help from my friend kitkat, KL Yoga has moved from WordPress 1.5 to Wordress 2.3.

Thanks Kitkat for your tips & this fantastic Colorful WordPress Theme!

For those of you who have resolved to be more healthy in 2008, here’s a little humour to encourage you…

A young man at a new year party turns towards his friend and asks for a cigarette.
‘I thought you made a new year resolution to quit smoking’ his mate says.
‘I’m in the process of quitting’ the man says back.
‘Right now, I am in the middle of phase one’ he continues.
‘What’s phase one?’
‘I’ve quit buying’

Eat Well, Sleep Well, Excercise Well! A Blessed 2008 :)

KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Posted by admin on 20 Dec 07 - 16 Comments

I received a rather disturbing email from a friend yesterday on everybody’s favorite ayam goreng KFC.

Yes, I’m a yoga fan but I DO indulge in “good” food sometimes.

Read the below article and decide for yourself OK?

*********START OF ARTICLE *********

KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire , they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?

Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the “FRIED” food issue.

Age and Flexibility – Can Yoga Help?

Posted by admin on 17 Nov 07 - 3 Comments

How Aging Affects Flexibility

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.
~Author Unknown

I have often wondered if we keep practicing yoga, will we be able to maintain or improve our flexibility as we age?

So I decided to do some quick research on the web, and generally the conclusion is that the older we become, the longer it will take to develop flexibility. Hopefully, we all become more patient when we get older.

age and flexibilityWith appropriate training, flexibility can be developed at all ages, although this does not suggest that flexibility can be developed at the same rate by everyone.

One of the reasons we become less flexible as we get older is a result of certain changes that take place in our connective tissues.

Practice Yoga with Compassion

Practice Yoga with Compassion

While thinking of what to write next, I came across Keeyit’s blog today and noticed this wonderful tagline:

  • Yesterday is History
  • Tomorrow is Mystery
  • Today is a Gift
  • That’s why we call it Present

It is so easy to take people for granted. When we judge people according to our own bias, we do not allow ourselves the opportunity to receive the Gift which that person has to offer.

Yoga gift

Here is a story which I received in an email yesterday. I hope you are inspired to receive that Gift from those whom you may take for granted.

A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li found that she couldn’t get along at all with her mother-in-law.

Yoga health food: Petai

Posted by admin on 13 Nov 07 - 4 Comments

Petai is one of those food you either love or hate. If you love it, that’s fantastic. If not, an article by Dr Aminuddin AHK of the Medical Faculty of UKM Kuala Lumpur (Dept of Physiology) may convince you to give it a try again. Like yoga, petai has many health benefits:

Energy Boost
Petai contains the natural sugars sucrose, fructose and glucose and provides a natural an sustained boost in energy level. According to the article, just 2 servings of petai provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. Also snacking on petai between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Yoga food, petai

Petai is high in fiber and can help restore normal bowel movement without the need to use laxatives.

According to a survey of people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating petai. This could be because petai contains tryptophan, a protein which the body converts into serotonin. Serotonin is believed to help you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
