Summary

Summary

Optimal weight is achieved when we tend to ourselves holistically. In order to lose weight, we need to develop a "lean consciousness" and think, move, and eat accordingly. In order to heal well and to stay energetic, we must nurture our immunity and vitality through specific movement and specific foods. Similarly, relaxation is more than just a state of mind; it's a combination of the right thoughts, actions, and nutrition.

The first book to combine yoga poses and recipes, YogaLean will help us learn to listen to our whole selves and teach us to feed both our bodies and our minds with the best "ingredients." Whether you are interested in losing weight and revitalizing metabolism, improving immunity or energy levels, or generally feeling clean, clear, and light, internationally-recognized Yoga and Wellness instructor Beth Shaw provides advice, poses, and delicious recipes that will infuse the body temple with vibrant health.
