After three years and a few hundred ceremonies under my belt, there is one constant that remains true: planning a wedding is stressful. The dress, the venue, and the guest list are just the beginning of the mountain of details that consume a bride’s mind as she plans the biggest day of her life.
Let’s not forget the groom. He’s not immune to wedding stress. Everything from choosing his groomsmen to making sure everything runs smoothly weigh heavily on his mind, as well. Most of all, he wants the day to be perfect for his betrothed.
While there’s no way to completely eliminate all stress, you can take a mindful step toward making your wedding day less nerve-racking with wedding yoga.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting meeting one of the Mid-Ohio Valley’s yoga instructors: Donna Spader. Donna is the owner of Blossoming Me Health, located at 0 Anns Drive in Vienna, WV, inside the Parkersburg Jiu-Jitsu Academy.
Donna is not only a yoga instructor; she is also a nurse committed to health and wellness. She offers yoga packages to help brides, grooms, and their wedding parties take some of the stress out of planning a wedding.
Donna’s yoga sessions are budget friendly too. At only $10 a class per person, you can pamper your entire wedding party with the gift of yoga. Donna makes it easy to get started, and you can customize the sessions to fit your schedule. Practice yoga at her studio or she will come to you. It’s that simple.
Although this may be the first time you’ve heard of wedding yoga, it’s a trend that is quickly catching on. Why? The benefits last well beyond the wedding day, and it is a beautiful gesture of appreciation for your wedding party.
Here are three reasons why yoga should be part of your wedding planning.
You’ve chosen your maid of honor, bridesmaids, and groomsmen carefully, and there is a lot of prep work to do prior to the wedding. However, what if you could take a step back, relax, and enjoy the pre-wedding experience? Yoga is a great way to unwind and to connect with everyone in your wedding party.
Donna’s yoga classes are beginner-friendly and designed to help you stretch, breathe, and meditate in a way that impacts your overall well-being and balance your emotions. When everyone is feeling the positive energy of yoga, it enhances your connection with everyone around you.
There’s no doubt that planning a wedding is stressful for everyone. Yoga promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety, and improves sleep.
Best of all, yoga helps you to deal with all the changes that you’re about to face in your life. You can add yoga during the planning stage of your wedding, the week of your wedding, and, even, after the wedding to reconnect, relax, and reminisce. In fact, some brides incorporate yoga into their bachelorette parties. Wine and yoga? Yes, please!
Controlled breathing not only relaxes you; it also increases your oxygen intake and decreases cortisol, which give your skin a healthy glow. If you’re prone to acne, the stress-reducing benefits of yoga may decrease the chance of stress breakouts on your wedding day.
Yoga sessions the day of the wedding are becoming increasingly popular because they help everyone balance their emotions and to live in the moment. With so much energy focused on the fine details, it’s nice to show everyone how much you appreciate them with a relaxing yoga session before all the festivities begin.
You don’t have to plan a wedding to enjoy the benefits of yoga. Donna offers a variety of group and onsite classes. Her fun and friendly yoga classes are suitable for beginners. All body types and fitness levels are welcome.
