There is this weird misconception that you need to look a certain way, be a certain way and have experience to do yoga. Well, you don’t! Say goodbye to that mindset because you really are missing out and boy do I have a treat for you!!!!
Are you struggling with the gym? Fed up of feeling lethargic? Want that toned, strong & sexy body? Then start doing yoga! It is for EVERYONE, men, women, children, the elderly, your next door neighbor’s mum’s sister….everyone! If you’ve had had a passing thought about it and put it off, now is the time to give it a go! There is even BEER YOGA! You heard me! Yoga and beer, how can you resist?!?!
What are the benefits?
Seriously?! I could list them and the list would go on for so long my fingers would fall off from typing! But here are just a few:
- Flexibility increases
- Digestive function increases
- Muscle strength and tone (sexy body?? yes please!)
- Optimal metabolism
- Increase circulation
- Reduces anxiety
- Stress reduction
- Mental clarity and focus
These are just to name a few, the list certainly isn’t exhaustive! There really is no need to dress it up and present it to you in any fancy way. Its great for you, your body, your mind and your spirit
How to I start?
Well, I am glad you asked! I want to introduce you to my gorgeous friend Franny, founder of FitYoga. If you trust me, even just a little bit, then you need to try her ‘Get Started’ package! If you are one of those people who had any of the misconceptions mentioned above, then this is specifically for YOU! Its the kick up the butt you need to GET STARTED!! Below Franny gives us a little insight into what its all about and why she created this package just for you!
Learning about Yoga has changed my life in a lot of ways.
In 2014, I took my Yoga Teacher Training in Hawaii. This decision was mainly made as an excuse to travel and to help me learn how to combat the aches and pains from my sedentary job as a Dental Hygienist. In all honesty, I didn’t really know much about this “Yoga” thing (I’m still trying to figure it out). However, how and why I started practicing is not as important to me as what occurred after I started.
Yoga helped me be OK with simply being myself and letting go of the pressure of trying to prove myself to everyone (a SUPER liberating feeling by the way, you should try it). Every class you go to, every person is at a different level, just trying to do their best, never any judgment.Teachers are always different as well, and it is not their ability to get their leg over their head (albeit impressive) that makes you want to get back into the classroom; it is the way they make you feel. The more classes I took, I realized that every teacher has something different to share. This got me thinking about what it was that I wanted to share with the people that stepped into my classroom. Super cool poses? Scratch that…touching my toes is still an issue. Then, I realized I have no control over what people will get out of their practice; everyone’s journey is different. But, no one will learn about what they can gain from yoga if they never start. So, I decided I wanted to help people get started. I want people to feel comfortable & included and I want them to have fun and be silly.
Creating fitYOGA gave me a venue to do this; it gave me the freedom to make the class whatever I wanted it to be. A chill environment and fun music, with a mix of yoga and interval workouts makes fitYOGA a class where everyone is welcome. The mix of yoga, exercise and relaxation encourages everyone to try new things and broaden their horizons. I made this fitYOGA program to give people a way to get started on their own journey towards health and wellness, no matter where they are in the world.
I just LOVE Franny’s story and her ‘GET STARTED’ package is so easy and simple to follow! It is a 4 week program that consists of 12 videos. It also includes cool down videos and a printable sheet to track you progress on, that way you can really keep yourself accountable!! PLUS you will receive 3 smoothie recipes from myself to keep you well and truly nourished during your practice! So GET STARTED!!
