With all of the commotion going on in the past few months, it’s been really important for me to keep my body AND mind in shape. New fitness routines have been my saving grace, and recently I’ve gotten into Yoga, which has been pretty fun since I have a strong dance background. Someone once told me that they strongly believed that people who do yoga are more kind. I believe this is because you are working on connecting with yourself and continuously reaching for self-improvement which tends to build confidence.
I’ve been travelling A LOT lately, and that really takes a toll on the ‘ol system, so Yoga has been a super effective way to keep myself in shape while also giving my head a little break and as tacky as it sounds, keep me grounded. It’s become much needed me time that keeps me energized, refreshed and ready to tackle those wedding plans!
If you don’t have a full hour to dedicate to yoga, take 10 – 15 minutes after your work out to do the classic yoga poses to stretch your muscles. I promise that you won’t be as sore the next day and it is the perfect transition between a good work out and the next part of your day! Ladies, think lean and tone. The more you stretch, the leaner you will be!
When it comes to namastaying fit (see what I did there?), I pretty much live in these yoga pants. In my previous fitness post a lot of people asked me where I got these from, they’re Lululemon (Go Canada!). These ones are special to me because Shawn bought them for me as a birthday present, and he’s quite pleased with himself that everyone likes them as much as he does. He actually said that ever since he’s given them to me, I haven’t taken them off… so I’m not kidding when I say I literally live in these puppies.
Yogatta get yourself a good pair, trust me on that one (I’m on fire with these puns today).
