How to plan a training session:
A typical training session will consist of:
Warm Up – Gentle exercises that prepare players bodies for harder training.
Technical skill drills – These drills isolate and train a specific skill needed for players e.g. catching and throwing.
Positional drills - Players are separated into their respective positions (quaffle players, beaters, seekers) in order to train skills and situations specific to their position.
Integrated drills – Players of different positions train together and practice techniques and tactics in a more game like situation.
Scrimmages – A practice match or matches.
Cool down – These gentle exercises and stretches allow physiological activity to return to normal gradually after
strenuous exercise and allow players to recover.
Do you know what a Yoga High is?
A yoga high is that blissful, euphoric feeling a yogi experiences after a yoga practice. Just like the better-known runner's high, the physical practice of yoga releases chemicals in the brain that produce the feelings of euphoria. But a yoga high comes from more than just a physical practice triggering a chemical reaction – yoga also strengthens the mind-body connection, builds self-confidence and creates a sense of happiness and joy. ⠀

How much should you drink every day? According to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota: Studies have produced varying recommendations over the years. But your individual water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how active you are and where you live.
No single formula fits everyone. But knowing more about your body's need for fluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.
Health benefits of water
Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Your body depends on water to survive.
Every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to work properly. For example, water:
Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration and bowel movements
Keeps your temperature normal
Lubricates and cushions joints
Protects sensitive tissues
Lack of water can lead to dehydration. Photo Credit Huffingtonpost.com.au

How to stay physically active during COVID-19 self-quarantine according to the World Health Organization.
Physical activity contributes to both our physical and mental health. As many people are currently confined to their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO/Europe has developed a guide to help people integrate simple, safe ways to stay physically active in limited space. The guide also takes account of some of the physical challenges of working from home, offering tips on how to integrate movement into daily routines.
WHO recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week for adults, or a combination of both. The guidance is intended for people in self-quarantine without any symptoms or diagnosis of acute respiratory illness. It should not replace medical guidance in case of any health condition.
