Daily life can be a circus for some people. Between juggling personal and professional duties and taking time out for oneself, adhering to a strict schedule may feel a lot like walking a tightrope. Achieving a high quality of life is all about maintaining a proper work life balance. Many yoga enthusiasts would attest to this if you asked them about their secret to making the everyday routine more manageable.
Setting aside a few hours a week to attend classes at a New Jersey yoga studio may be your best bet for staying calm, centered and grounded amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life.
According to the News Sentinel, some yoga practitioners are shaking the regimen up a bit by using props – namely, silk hammocks with which to suspend their bodies. The practice is known as "antigravity" yoga and allows students to hang upside down, which could help them feel lighter as well as relieve joint pain.
"I would call it a revolution more than a trend," said instructor Aileen Febles, quoted by the news source. "It's different. It makes it a little easier to do [yoga] while you're holding onto a prop, like the hammock."
Engaging in yoga can be a good way to improve balance and flexibility, whether you are firmly planted on the ground or soaring above it all.
