So you have booked your wedding venue and its a year from now and you want to get in shape and feel and look your best on your wedding day.
I personally do not love exercise which involves running or anything that makes my joints ache. I've found the perfect exercise for me. It is called Dru Yoga and it is not only great for the joints, toning and mind and body relaxation, it includes Energy Block Release and Activations to warm up the body and get the energy or prana/chi flowing. It is a fantastic way to be in a great mindset for the rest of the day. My Dru Yoga teacher is fantastic and if I could go to the class every day I would do. I do try to do some at home too but The Yoga Room based in Witney is fantastic. Sue Baldwin has great deals on where you can book a whole term upfront and pay online if you wish which helps when you are first starting as it is a commitment worth sticking to. After the first session I was hooked anyway.
I've found the Yoga helps me stay calm and happy and uplifted at the same time. I have also found that I have this inner peace that cannot be explained but it really keeps me grounded and on the straight and narrow with eating healthily too. As soon as I stop the yoga it all goes out of the window.
I've told numerous brides about Dru Yoga and this particular form of Yoga suits be perfectly, there are lots of other forms that will work for each individual for what they are looking for. It is great for mind and body, for getting in shape carefully and toning but also calming the mind. Perfect combination for the bride that has a wedding to plan.
I've being doing this Yoga for over a year now and all of a sudden im finding inner core strength and some of the asana's (poses) are becoming easier each time. I still haven't mastered the Lotus Position, this will take a lot of practice for me but I'm determined to be able to do this by the end of this year.
I'm forever on the look out for Yoga clothing and supporting products to help me strengthen in each Asana. The meditation that links with the yoga is an amazing thing that im starting to do most days. I have a little Wooden Meditation Stool and some relaxing music where I can take myself into a more relaxed state of mind. But there are some amazing ball type chairs out there which I have seen through Gaiam which look and feel so comfy and another great way to relax. I also find that initially all of my ideas come during or after meditation. I personally just like having some "me time".
Even going out for a walk Gaiam have these walking weights that you can carry with you to help tone the arms and burn Gaiam Walking Weights are a fab way to tone up without looking too obvious and you can use these weights during your Yoga/Pilates exercises.
If you are looking for a way to keep fit, keep healthy and feel relaxed and strong within I definitely recommend Dru Yoga and Meditation.
