I came across this great yoga video the other day and wanted to share it with everyone. 30 Minute Yoga to De-stress from Yoga by Candace. A calm and relaxing yoga sequence to help zap wedding planning stress.
Weddings are a time of excitement and joy. A day to create memories and to honour the love you and your fiancé share. Along with that joy and excitement often comes a bit of stress and nervousness about the day. Not everyone is equipped to deal with the unfamiliar feelings and emotions that are caused by such an important event and it’s easy to get caught up in the stress and pressure that a wedding day can bring.
Yoga is a fantastic way to alleviate stress and become more calm and focused during the wedding planning process. Many of you may have already started your yoga practice before getting engaged, but for some of you, the idea of yoga is very new. Don’t let that scare you away! If you are shy or unsure about how to start, you can easily do yoga in the comfort of your own home. Just purchase a yoga mat, put on some comfy clothes and you are ready to get started!
Did you know the word yoga means “union” in Sanskrit. Everyone who does yoga knows of it’s benefits, but the effects it can have on you as a couple, especially during the planning of your wedding when stress may be at an all time high, are huge. Not only does it help with your overall flexibility and wellness, but the benefits of practicing yoga with your partner will help develop a connection of communication, intimacy, trust and balance.
I am a huge believer in meditation – it helps to reset the mind, eliminates stress and nerves, and can help to get you in the right mind set for wedding planning and the wedding day itself. I found this great video on YouTube by Rebekah Borucki – Blissful Bride Meditation for Wedding Stress.
Having some wedding day jitters? Or maybe you are just feeling a little stressed with balancing wedding planning and every day life. I found this fantastic YouTube video from yoga instructor Chloe Kernaghan – Chloekyoga.com. Three simple poses that anyone can do, even if you are new to yoga. Watch this video, try it out, and then bookmark it so you have it when you need it. Definitely do this on the morning of you wedding day as well – start your day off as a calm and relaxed bride.
