Work Out Your Holiday Stress

Exhausted from holiday planning and errands?

Does the thought of a jam-packed mall make you cringe?

Anticipating the need to blow off some steam after too much family time?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, think about spending some quality time in a yoga studio near you over the holidays. Yoga is a great way to shed holiday stress and work off some of that holiday weight  Practicing yoga has a wide array of benefits, from building core strength to improving posture to increasing your level of flexibility.  Yoga also makes a fun holiday gift for friends and family looking ahead to 2012 resolutions.  Why not give the gift of health – with a yoga mat and package of beginner classes?
