ello, readers! National Yoga Month is officially here, and our September issue is full of inspirational stories on the healing power of this ancient art––plus, relatable advice on how to implement your own daily practice. In fact, on the Suncoast, our thriving yoga community welcomes everyone to discover this outlet for themselves. So, here’s a peek inside Natural Awakenings’ special yoga-centric extravaganza!
This month’s “Fit Body” segment focuses on the benefits of Restorative Yoga to deepen your practice through gentle movement, breath connectivity, mindfulness and supportive props to help you maintain each pose for an extended amount of time. Also, our feature article on “Healing Music” explains how drumming, chanting or crystal bowl singing––often experienced in conjunction with yoga––can relieve stress and enhance wellness. Finally, an invigorative yoga flow requires a fueled body, and our “Conscious Eating” article suggests swapping one meal each day for a vegan alternative. Those plant-based nutrients will keep you energized, both on the mat and in everyday life.
As always, I sincerely hope you find this issue insightful, uplifting and––of course––enjoyable. Please email any further comments or suggestions to [email protected]. We love hearing from our readers, so feel free to reach out anytime!
