December is just around the corner, and that means the countdown to Christmas is on. While Christmas is an exciting time, for many, it can also be filled with stress and anxiety. The demands of the festive season; shopping for gifts, social commitments, family gatherings, and even the loss of loved ones, can often leave us feeling frazzled and overwhelmed. Taking time out to breathe, getting out in nature, and nourishing and moving our bodies, are just some of the ways we can ease the festive stresses.
Yoga, with its focus on the breath and mindful movement, is another great way of helping to manage stress. Spending time on the mat can not only make space in the body, but also in the mind. We caught up with some of the yoga instructors who will be teaching in our Clondalkin café throughout the coming months, to find out their top tips for keeping calm this Christmas.
