First of all, congratulations! You’re getting married, and it is wonderful! But, it is also probably the most terrifying and stressful thing ever. There’s so much to be done, to be taken care of, and you have to look your best through it all! Well, right there is the first reason why you should make yoga a part of your routine running up to the wedding. Not only is yoga a good way to stay fit, but will also help you unwind, eliminating the awful effects that stress has on one’s skin and metabolism.
The benefits of de-stressing go beyond the physical. As the bride, your emotions are probably all over the place. Of course, you are thrilled that you are making your love official, and entering this new phase of your life. But, you are probably nervous about how it will all play out. On top of this, you are leaving your family, friends, and the coveted single life behind, and that’s a lot to say goodbye to. You need to stay emotionally calm and composed through it all, because guess what… even at your best, you will have outbursts of crying and snapping, and what have you! Yoga will make sure that you don’t drive yourself, and everyone else, completely insane.
Every once in a while, you will need to tune out of all the madness around you, and just be by yourself, and tune in to what you are going through. Yoga is an excellent means to achieve that end, while making you physically fitter and stronger.
The best thing about Yoga is that, unlike other forms of working out, its benefits last for a long time even after you stop practicing. Let’s get real… you will not be able to hit the gym every day for some time after you get married, to maintain that sexy body you worked hard for. Other forms of exercise lead to rapid weight gain, if you stop practicing them. If you’ve used yoga as a way of getting fit, you can enjoy your honeymoon period (not just the two weeks of your honeymoon), without having to drag yourself to the gym for a full workout five times a week.
