Let’s start by stating the obvious: food is important.
If you have a workout routine, your diet can make or break your efforts. Weight loss and muscle building are both nearly impossible if your diet is lacking.

Though I may technically be more of an early bird than a night owl, even I am not a fan of waking up bright and early. Or, at least, I wasn’t.
Now, however, I’ve changed up my morning routine, and as a result, I’ve taken the dread out of getting up. The key is having a morning routine that gets me energized, motivated, and feeling great about taking on the challenges of the day.

When Shelly Werts first checked out a yoga VHS tape from the library in Hardin County as a high schooler, she was just dabbling in something new. As a sixteen year old, the tapes provided a source of entertainment and exercise that she could do in the comfort of her home. But they also marked the beginning of her yoga practice. Shelly’s yoga practice has grown and evolved with her. Now, she shares her practice with others as one of Your Yoga’s instructors, and yoga has become one of her most important self-care tools.
