Be Well Practiced.

It’s Called A Practice For A Reason…


Have you been thinking of trying out yoga? Are you thinking you’re not flexible or agile enough to partake? Well, not all of those super bendy yogis were just born that way! Time and time again on their yoga mat helped pave the path to where they are today. It’s called a yoga practice for a reason. And there is no “perfect” practice. It’s a journey, an experience and with time, it will unfold. With time, your yoga practice will not only help you gain more flexibility and more strength but a sense of inner peace and a better sense of yourself. Whether you’re a runner, a boot camper, a full on athlete or just needing something to feel more whole in your life, yoga is for you. Don’t judge it until you try it…in fact, leave that judgment behind because there is no judgement in yoga. Come on over to A Healthy Balance and practice with us on Sunday mornings from 9-10am with an open mind and a light heart. You might just see a new side to things!

Be Healthy. Be Balanced.

Be Stretched.

I can’t tell you how many times I have watched people at the gym finish their workout and walk straight out the door. Aren’t you forgetting something? Don’t neglect that padded corner of the gym called the “stretching area!”

Proper stretching takes less than 10 minutes and provides so many benefits that its worth taking the little bit of extra time.

Some benefits include:

  • Decreases pain and soreness after exercise
  • Improves circulation, blood flow, and prevents blood from pooling in the limbs
  • Improves range of motion
  • Improves posture
  • Decreases muscle tension
  • Reduces muscle soreness
  • Helps prevent waste products, such as lactic acid, from building up in your muscle
