If summer has left you stressed from road trips, keeping up with your kids and back-to-school errands, then you’re in luck. September is National Yoga Awareness Month, and the perfect opportunity for you to start a new, healthy lifestyle. As you may already know, yoga has several benefits, such as a toner body, sharper mind, less anxiety, hormonal balance and more restful sleeps — I could go on and on, really.
So, here’s your challenge. Try a few classes a week at your local yoga studio. Many places offer free or discounted classes in honor of Yoga Awareness Month. When you find the right class and instructor for you, keep it up and I’m confident you’ll feel like a new person by the time the holidays roll around. And if you just can’t get enough, follow these tips to get the same benefits in your own home.
Designate a Tranquil Area
You don’t need that much space to practice yoga. Find an area in your home — away from everyday stress triggers — even if it’s your attic.
