Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope you are all feeling stuffed with love and gratefulness. This is absolutely my most favorite time of year. I am a total sucker for everything holiday. And yes, that totally includes crazy holiday treats, meals and drinks. And lights, and decorations and yes my Christmas tree went up before Thanksgiving this year! (Thanks BMW!) But most of all this season, I am trying to take little time keep up with my workouts, be more purposeful about what I put in my body and give myself a little time to meditate, pray and be intentional with my days.
Since it’s Fit Friday I thought giving us all a little reminder about the wonderful benefits of yoga would be helpful during this stressful (and fun too!) holiday season. A big thanks to my friend Jessica Fajans for being our Fit Friday this month! She teaches at CorePower Yoga here in Austin and we’ll dive into all her favorite things!
PS- major shoutout to my friend Jessica Johnson for providing all the gorgeous photography today! Check out her work @jessijoh if you’re looking for a photographer in Austin.
I also am using this time to talk about Lung Cancer Awareness Month that also falls in November. Besides not smoking, there are lots of things we can all do to make our lungs a little stronger and cleaner. For example, I just got a ton of houseplants that help clean the air in my home. (Blog post coming soon on that!) Naturally, yoga’s breathing exercises help strength our lungs from the inside out!
Now that we are feeling all zen, I am kicking it over to Jessica Fajans to get all the deets about her passion for yoga and her fav Austin eats!
