International Yoga Day 2021 will be celebrated worldwide on June 21. The day is designed to raise awareness of the many benefits of practicing yoga for people around the world, according to the United Nations. Practicing yoga certainly has a number of health benefits, including mental and physical relaxation, and building strength and flexibility. When yoga practice is combined with healthy food intake, it can work wonders! On International Yoga Day, learn how to stay fit with yoga and what to consume before and after yoga sessions.

Yoga is ideally practiced early in the morning and on an empty stomach. However, one can consider grabbing fresh fruits and nuts before hitting the mat. It is also recommended to allow 2-3 hours between the meal and the session; This will help your body function better when you are doing the asanas.

After the session, our bodies may begin to crave food, but we are not allowed to eat right away. We have to give our body about 30 minutes to acclimate again. Then you can opt for healthy foods like a banana and oat smoothie, moong dal paneer chili or an egg wrap. A very important factor is to stay hydrated at all times.
