3 Reasons YOU need time for YOU

Hello!

Happy 2019! I’m always in awe at how quickly the year(s) go by. There’s usually a point around March or April where I start wondering “when will the weather get nice?!” - living in Wisconsin really shows the gamut of CRAZY weather - then around July I think “whoa! time…SLOW DOWN!”

Anyway, my point is the days are long and years are short. And before we know it, time has gotten the better of us. With this in mind I want to remind you that as the days, weeks and months drone on it’s SO SO SOOOO important for you to take a few moments for yourself - get up and move!

Why?!?!?

Because, #1 you DESERVE IT. Yes. YOU. DO. It’s proven that taking time for you (whatever makes YOU feel good) helps you be a better person. So many that come into the studio will always say, “yoga is my time, it helps me be a better mom/dad/spouse/friend”. I really love knowing that MPY can be that place for people to unwind and refill their cup.

#2 Refilling your cup will help YOU give MORE! We all know you can’t pour from an empty cup - it’s time to refill your cup!

#3 Prevent future injuries. Yoga will help to sculpt muscles and work on your balance which will in turn help you prevent injuries in the future! Yoga also helps you gain flexibility - and being “flexible” doesn’t mean the same thing for every body.

NOW is your chance to schedule your class and make time for you! Yes YOU DO HAVE TIME :)
The image below are a few yoga poses for you try - take a 3-5 minute desk stretch break!

Holistic Health Month!

Happy March! 

Did you know March is Holistic Health Month? 

March can feel like one of the longest months - especially in Wisconsin. We see the full gamut of weather - snow, wind, ice, rain, sun. You name it, we see it. Sometimes all in one day.
Thanks Mother Nature ;) 
So often the weather can be a big bummer this time of year which leads us to often feel like we're in a slump. This is the time of year that we can start making some changes in our holistic health in order to set us all up for success in those warm summer months! 

Now you may be asking, what is holistic health? 

Holistic health is taking into consideration the whole person. Meaning mind, body, and soul. Have you ever thought about your health as a whole? Or divided aspects of health up into more manageable pieces to make one whole piece?

Holistic Health

There are 5 main pieces to holistic health (in no specific order) - intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, and occupational.

You could (and should!) add eating into that mix as well. Because when you eat good food (i.e. veggies & whole grains) you almost always will feel better! 

Often changing just one meal (or snack!) can put you on the road to success when it comes down to changing our eating habits. Maybe drink 8-12 oz of water instead of a soda. Or reach for some almonds (think about just a handful!) or carrots and hummus (or sub in whatever veggie, nut, fruit) instead of reaching for a candy bar or sugary snack. Trust me...the sugary sweet snack usually sounds better but at the end of the day the carrots or nuts will often keep you fuller longer! 

There are so many more ways to enrich your life in these 6 aspects! And don't feel like you have to tackle ALL of these all at once! That can be quite overwhelming. Simple changes are often the best and easiest way to start and SUCCEED!! When you succeed you want to do more!

Another easy way to succeed is to get yourself moving! Maybe a walk on a sunny day or a yoga/tai chi/pound class if it's not so sunny (or even if it is sunny! ;) ) 

We want you to succeed - so we're putting on a SALE at MPY! For ONE WEEK at Midwest Power Yoga classes are $5!

That's right - $5 drop-ins (cash only!) for the week of March 11 - March 17!!!

See you on the mat!
