    This episode is also brought to you by MagicMind.

    As yoga teachers and business owners, we are often juggling a million things at once so productivity and efficiency are super important! That’s why I am very excited to be partnering with MagicMind.

    MagicMind is a productivity drink that is made of all-natural ingredients and has adaptogens to help decrease stress, nootropics that boost blood flow, and Matcha to help keep you focused.

    I am super sensitive to caffeine, which means that I can’t pound coffee all day to stay energized and productive and that’s one of the reasons that I love MagicMind. There is minimal caffeine so you can get energized without getting the caffeine jitters and then the caffeine crash.

    Whether you are someone that needs a boost of productivity in the mornings or the afternoons, MagicMind is the perfect drink! I love to use MagicMind for a quick pick-me-up during the afternoon lag and I love to make it as a Matcha Latte! It’s healthy, it tastes great, and it helps me get into my flow state.

    If you’d like to experience the benefits of increased productivity and mental energy, you can get MagicMind at www.magicmind.co/yoga and use code yoga20 for 20% off.
