#WorkoutWednedsay: Yoga for Stress and Anxiety

This year, I'm starting a #WorkoutWednesday theme in my blogposts and social media shares where I'll be sharing my journey of becoming more active and more consistent with my exercise this year. I welcome you to use the hashtag also and let's support each other!

Today, let's talk about yoga. I have always found yoga to be relaxing. I like the quiet sounds, relaxing music, and dim lighting. I like the slowness of the movements and the focus on breathing. I love most the last few minutes of meditation and reflection with shavasana.

Because of our hectic family schedule (here I go again making excuses for lack of time for exercise), I've found a few awesome videos on YouTube that are excellent for at-home yoga practice. I'll be sharing a few of my favorites over the next few months.

For 2016, I'm hoping to do yoga at least once a week. The last few times I've done yoga at home, my sons have joined me which has been a nice treat to exercise all together!

Yoga with Adrienne is one of my favorite yoga YouTubers! She has lots of videos for all ranges of yoga experience. She has a series just for beginners, for those seeking to use yoga for weight loss, or even  "30 Days of Yoga" challenge which is great for beginners or yoga camp to help you build stability and mindfullness.

With work starting back up after a wonderful three week vacation, I'm feeling a bit of stress and anxiety. Here is the yoga video I've done a few times to help me alleviate some of my stresses from returning to work.
