So it's that time of year again when we are asked what our new year's resolutions are. Believe in them or not (and I'm not sure I do), the ending of a year does seem to have a significance that can raise questions and prompt decisions.
Alongside this, I noticed in the news that there is a 'middle age health crisis' for those people aged 40-60.
Two red flags include decreased sleep and increased stress: two major factors that can disturb the balance of health in other areas in your life, often leading to physical health complications - if not now, maybe later.
But rest assured, yoga will add some health benefits back into your life.
The breathing alone in a yoga class can greatly relieve stress, with techniques learned having far reaching benefits beyond the mat, for example in aiding better sleep. Coupled with the physical posture aspect of class and a healthy dose of the 'woo-woo' yoga stuff that any good teacher will weave in, starting a yoga practice is probably the best resolution you can make.
Luckily I've got you covered - classes at Bristol City Yoga (Tuesday's and Saturdays) and Pacific Yoga (Tuesdays and Saturdays) are now complimented with a new class at the Streetevny Dance Studios on Wednesdyas at 12.30.
See you on the mat yogi's ;)
