Your diet plays an enormous role in the overall strength and health of your immune system. Providing your body with healthy, organic, and nutrient rich food will help to boost your system and keep those germs at bay. One way to do that is to consume foods that are rich in: vitamin C, A, B6, D, Iron, Folate/folic acid and zinc.

Look for those vitamin rich veggies, the darker the better: kale, collards, spinach, turnip greens, swiss-chard, broccoli, mustard greens, red and green romaine lettuce and make sure you consume enough lean protein with : fish, skinless, white-meat poultry, low fat yogurt, beans, nuts.

    Hydrate! Drink plenty of water before class

    Wear cool, comfortable clothing such as biking or running shorts and fitted tank tops or sports bras.

    Don't take class on a full stomach. Eat a light snack, if needed, before class, but nothing too heavy.

    Come at least 20 minutes early before your first class for registration.

    Don't be nervous. Most new students feel a little intimidated, but after only a few classes you'll feel right at home.
