A yoga practice nourishes you in many ways. It takes you out of your mind and into your body. You can release tension, move intelligently and feel more calm, present and relaxed in your skin.
The effect of a pure cacao drink combines amazingly well with yoga. Drinking cacao before your yoga practice often sets the base for a deep and heartwarming practice.
Cacao takes your awareness into the moment and body - therefore facilitating the effect you often aim for in the yoga practice. And, the way cacao connects you to yourself in a loving way, supports a deeper practice with a warm feeling of embrace.
Tip: if cacao feels a bit heavy on your belly, moving slowly and breathing relaxed and deeply is a good way to go ;-).
In meditation we try to focus inward and silence our mind. Not by pushing, but by observing and accepting with softness. By remembering what we are doing. Connecting to deeper layers of ourselves. That's why 'trying' is a good approach. It's not about reaching a goal, just practicing is a journey in itself.
Cacao helps us to dive deeper and practice gratefulness. The focus and clarity that arises helps us in relationships, living in a state of abundance and perform better. We like to sip cacao before/during meditation or afterwards to integrate the practice.
By wishing the benefits we get from meditation and cacao to others we send positive vibes to people close to us, people we know and don't know. By going inwards and extending the practice outside of ourselves we grow even more.
