Make peace with stress

This past Sunday my boyfriend and I attended a workshop at Charm City Yoga. Stephannie Weikert led a 2 hour workshop that helped showcase the yogic way to handle stress. We all know that daily stress sneaks into our lives. Stress can be extremely detrimental to your health so learning the different ways to cope with these difficulties was exactly what the doctor ordered during the holidays. There was pranayama {breathwork}, a physical practice, meditation and savasana.
The physical practice was really interesting because the class would be led into a difficult pose and we would be prompted to pay attention to how we were feeling, how stress would build and how to bring the body back to neutral. We would practice reigning in our mind when it would wander.  There were restorative postures at the end which I just ate up. They were deeeelicious. I have fallen in love with restorative classes it was the perfect way for me to end the practice.
If you're in the Baltimore area, try to check out a workshop. They're currently offering multiple community workshops with advanced teachers for $6. An amazing deal to dive deeper into your practice.
