Take a Yoga Break
There are many different forms of yoga, ranging from Power Yoga, also known as “gym yoga” as my friend Jude calls it to restorative yoga. The latter is very relaxing and calming. Using a variety of props (pillows, blankets, towels, chairs, walls etc.) the body is fully supporting allowing for a deeper sense of relaxation in the various poses.
While classes are a great way to practice yoga, this isn’t always possible. Thanks to the internet, you can learn about the different types of yoga, and practice it, even if it’s only for five minutes at a time.
