SPRING DETOX YOGA & FOOD RECIPE BY NATHALIE RASING

INCLUDING A SPECIAL SPRING RECIPE TO KEEP THE BLADDER & KIDNEYS HEALTHY

The health of our kidneys is important to filter fluids and keep our body clean from waste and toxins. The bladder you want to keep strong and functioning well over the years for obvious reasons. Twists Asanas are the right one, the twisting action gives the abdominal organs a thorough massage and squeezes the kidneys, while the intensifying blood flow to and from the kidneys rejuvenates them. As groin opening poses keep the bladder in good shape and help keep its elasticity. You want to create space in the lower abdomen and tone the muscles supporting the bladder. The spreading action of the legs and relaxing of the groin area like in Baddha Konasana and Upavista Konasana, does just that. And to increase the effect you can do them in inverted poses. That way the whole abdomen relaxes and the pressure in the organs felt from being upright is relieved.

5 Reasons East Bali is the place to Eat, Pray & Love

By Annemarijn Kalfsterman

So, you want some peace of mind? Time to get out of your head and indulge yourself in nature? East of Bali contains some of the most picturesque and least visited beaches on the whole island. It’s also the perfect spot for diving, yoga and meditation. Here are 5 reasons why you need to look no further:

1. Peace and quietness guaranteed!

The minute you’re driving the East Coast Road into Candidasa, passed the fisherman’s town of Sanur, peace and quietness is calling you. Not only do you find less people in this region, it also encompasses the most beautiful beaches of Bali, for instance White Sand Beach (Pantai Pasir Putih) and Blue Lagoon.
