Kitchen Intuition, by Jenny Ehrlinger
I feel so fortunate to be a member of Monona Yoga’s growing community! My yoga journey
began several years ago, but in recent years it has become an important part of my life.
As a certified health coach and personal chef, wellness is very important to me. Whether it be healthy
eating, meditating or exercise, I find myself always striving for balance. I believe that healthy
eating supports the body and mind in ways similar to yoga, through interconnectedness.
When in practice, yoga reminds me that I am connected to all living things. And just as yoga
connects our breathing to our movements, eating nourishing, whole foods connects our bellies
to our brains.
It’s no secret that good nutrition supports not only your physical health but also
plays a part in good mental health. So when we care for our bodies through the foods we
choose to eat, we create strength and balance that carries over into our practice. It’s like a
double whammy of wellness! So, continue to look to the mat for balance, but don’t forget to also
look at your plate.
