Finding a balance
With all the obligations and stresses that life presents us with, it’s important to consider rituals and practices that promote well-being and balance in our lives. Yoga has become a popular form of exercise and an outlet for many people. There are various types of yoga that range in focus and philosophy- from Bikram, Hatha, and Vinyasa. My friend Angela Beaver recently became a certified yoga instructor in Atlanta, specializing in Hatha yoga. This particular type of yoga focuses on posture, breathing, and meditation. Aside from physical exercise, yoga encourages stress relief, increased energy, better sleep, good circulation, muscle relief, and much more. You can find her site and information by clicking here. I also really love these yoga mats created by wallpaper designer Jill Malek shown above, which are biodegradable and come in a range of patterns. Stay stylish while you get your yoga on.
