Turn stress into serenity with these 10 short yoga classes to ease you through the holiday season.
The holiday season can be fun but also frenetic! Routines often go out of the window, which can be refreshing, but it can also upset the balance of your day. Practising yoga, even for just ten minutes, will help to reset your equilibrium and invite a little slice of peacefulness into your day.
I've designed this list to be practised sequentially with a nice mix of Hatha for grounding, Vinyasa to get the energy flowing, Yin for peace, a strength class for some challenge, meditation for connecting to yourself and a restorative class perfect just before bed. It's not so important that you practise these classes in order - just that you practice something; your mind and body will thank you for it :)
These classes are also perfect for our offline viewing app - EkhartYoga members can download up to ten videos for free!
Wishing you a peaceful holiday season.
