Why You Should Practice Yoga This Holiday Season

‘Tis the season for presents, Black Friday crowds, family time...and yoga? It may not be your first thought, but the holiday season is actually the perfect time to incorporate yoga into your routine. There are many ways hot yoga and barre fitness can help you feel like your best self as the holiday season approaches.

Beat Holiday Stress

We all know how stressful the holidays can be. There are gifts to buy, families to entertain, homes to clean and lots of decorations to be hung. Yoga is the perfect solution to help you stay calm during the hectic holiday season.

Yoga incorporates practices such as meditation, deep breathing and stretching that are great for helping you to reduce stress. A yoga practice also provides time for you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and instead focus on yourself and your needs. Consider attending a class between holiday parties or shopping trips to get some much needed relaxation.

Ward Off Cold & Flu Season

With the fun of the holidays also comes the much-dreaded cold and flu season. Make sure you don’t end up in bed with a nasty virus this year by taking proactive steps to strengthen your immune system. Yoga is a form of exercise and relieves stress, both of which makes it a great immune-boosting practice.

No one wants to miss special family time because of an illness. Hot yoga and barre classes are a great way to help strengthen your immune system this holiday season, and our classes are accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

Celebrate Your Body

The holidays can be a joyous celebration, but can also bring up body insecurities for many of us. It’s easy to feel guilty for indulging in decadent foods, even though there’s nothing wrong with celebrating. Show your body some love this holiday season and give thanks to it’s strength by taking time for your yoga practice.

Yoga and barre are both wonderful ways to get moving and connect with your body. Spending some time in a yoga class honoring yourself or getting sweaty with a barre session can do wonders for your confidence this holiday season and help you feel your best year round.

Restore Your Energy

Between all the stress, shopping, and socializing, it’s pretty easy to get burnt out during the holidays. A regular yoga practice is a great way to boost your energy levels. Not only is exercise in general proven to increase energy, but yoga in particular can help manage your stress so that you won’t get burnt out.

It can be hard to say no to the demands of loved ones and work during this time of year. However, it’s essential to take time out for yourself during the holidays in order to be your best self. Scheduling regular yoga and barre sessions is the perfect way to make sure you have a dedicated time reserved just for you and your well-being.

Celebrate Presence Instead of Presents

Yoga can help you stay mindful and focused during the chaotic holiday season. When you have so many errands to run, parties to attend, and family obligations, you may find yourself just going through the motions to complete everything on your to-do list. Taking time to go to a yoga class can reestablish your mind-body connection, and allow you to be present in that moment. Carrying this presence throughout the holiday chaos will help you better connect with those around you, and allow you to fully enjoy the holiday season with loved ones and friends.
