“4 days left to the wedding, and I owe it Bridal Bootcamp.  I feel my best for my wedding day,” quoted by my best friend, Julie who loves Bridal Bootcamp.  Julie, like so many brides-to-be, can relate.  Who doesn’t want to feel their best on the most important day, your wedding day?

Being fit, according to science, will lead to living a healthy lifestyle.  The more fit, the healthy we eat and the less stress we have, ultimately leads to a leading a healthy lifestyle.  As a new couple, the best start is a healthy start.

Managing Stress before Your Wedding Day

Finding a way to handle your stress becomes our first task.  Everyone has stress! It’s how we cope with it that matters.  Cardio exercise is one of the best methods to increase your endorphins.  Increased endorphins will make you happy and reduce your stress levels.  Breathing techniques will calm your heart rate down.  One of my favorite breathing techniques: inhaling for 5 seconds and exhaling for 8 seconds. This is one great way to manage your stress.

One of my favorite mindfulness activities is to be fully present.  For example, while walking, I am focused on every footstep, the length of my stride, and the sound of my breath.  If I lose track and my mind starts to wander, I come back to my breath.  Trying to be present while doing anything, i.e., washing dishes, making dinner, eating dinner, having sex, takes practice.      Learning breathing techniques, they are about 500 breath patterns exist; you can stay focused and stress-less on your wedding day too.

Fitness

Regular workouts can keep you stress-less too.  Feeling good inside and out makes a complete difference in your self-esteem.  Your confidence and energy levels will soar!  Keeping the body healthy will increase your self-awareness.  Improving your strength and flexibility will increase your balance, stability, and control.  If you are an Athlete, you will become a stronger athlete. Doing activities can be a great bonding experience.  Some activities include running, cycling, hiking, swimming, skiing, tennis, golf, and kayaking.  Athletes Who Use Pilates

Beach Yoga allows us to “let go.”  This is one of the most important reasons to practice yoga. Letting go of any emotional, physical, or mental tension that does not serve you.  Beach Yoga allows our senses to be captivated by the sensations found on the beach…smell of the salty air, sound of the waves crashing onto the beach, the sun on our shoulders and the ocean breeze’s cooling effect, toes in the sand, the list goes on.  Beach Yoga is exactly what your group needs to find zen before your big day.  There is no better place to practice Yoga, except on the beach.  Every Beach Yoga practice is tailored to suit your needs and will accompany any level.Y

Yoga at the beach is the highlight of the summer.  Located near beaches in and near Portsmouth, Rye and Hampton, New Hampshire, this area has become a popular spot for wedding destinations, corporate gatherings, and other outdoor gatherings.  After finishing one practice, your mind and body will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  We all need a mini mind vacation, from time to time.

A few suggestions are to bring a towel (or old mat), a water bottle and your breath.  We will focus on breathing and practice asanas, or postures, with attention to alignment.  Beach yoga is for all levels and modifications can be made for all postures.  Before you begin any yoga practice, please consult with your doctor or family physician.  Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day and bring water with you.  I look forward to seeing you on the beach.  Namaste, Michele
