Dining Rooms Are for Yoga

Why you should be practicing yoga at home. A few years ago, I discovered hot yoga and it completely changed my life (if you didn’t click on that link and you suffer from headaches, I highly suggest you read it). So, when I found out Yoga Innovations had an upcoming yoga teacher training program, I was beyond excited! Don’t worry PR clients, I’m not making a career change, I just want to deepen my own practice, expand my knowledge, and help others find how yoga can help them. As part of the teacher training program, we have to complete an at home yoga practice each week and then journal about it. Well, when I was writing in my journal about my first home practice effort, I thought, what a wonderful blog post this would make, so here we are!

Fall into Relaxation

This week has been the most stressful few days I’ve had in a long time. Between the pressure of starting up a new business, an ongoing family situation with my teenage sister, and not having time in my days to do the simplest things like going to the food store, life has been just a bit crazy lately.

Because the truth is, once you realize you need to de-stress, it’s already too late. I have to get better about making time for me everyday, not just on days where I’m ready to pull my hair out! Here’s a few little ways I’ve decided to treat myself to relaxation this week right at home: 1.) My Julep Maven Beauty Box Every month when the mailman delivers

Add it all up and you’ll find that women spend approximately 135 days, 3726 hours, 223560 minutes, and 13,413,600 seconds in their lifetime getting ready. THAT’S A LONG TIME! Why do we do it? Who do we do it for? What exactly is it that makes us give up this much of our lives prepping our appearance? I hadn’t taken this time into consideration either until I started coordinating a client’s involvement in a recent event. Meet the Body Love Tour, hosted by Lindsey Smith and Amie Olson of Promoting Natural Health, where “each event is designed to give women the freedom to express themselves and be who they are.” The mission: changing the way women feel about themselves and their bodies. “One by one we
