23 Jul Get ahead of Back-to-School stress
The Onslow School District will be welcoming students back for the first day of school Aug. 26, and everyone with children in school knows what that means. The days leading up to the first day of school are usually filled with buying new clothes and school supplies, orientations, and meetings with new teachers. Not only that, children usually bring home a pile of papers for their parents to read and sign during the first week of school. If you have more than one child, multiply those papers by the number of children you have and you may be ready to go back on vacation.
However, the yoga studio Rooted in Wellness, which offers small personalized classes, has a solution for the stress parents face as the first day of school looms ahead. This Jacksonville studio, located at 200 Doctors Drive, Suite J, is offering free yoga classes to get ahead of that stress. The offer applies to all classes available the week of Aug 12-17.
Benefits of practicing yoga include:
- Stress reduction and mood improvement
- More energy
- Improved focus and productivity
- Better posture
- Improved flexibility from stretching and toning the muscles of the body
- Better all-around health resulting in fewer sick days
- Easing of chronic pain resulting from conditions such as lower back pain, arthritis, and headaches
- Better sleep
- Weight loss
When it comes to the first benefit listed – stress reduction and mood improvement, the website Netdoctor reports that yoga is famous for reducing stress. In fact those who regularly practice all three basic elements of yoga – poses, breathing, and meditation – are better able to manage their heart-rate variability (HRV). As a result, their heart rate will slow down some, which helps them respond better to stressful situations.
So, if you are ready to approach all the stresses that come with the first week of school with a more serene outlook, give Rooted in Wellness a call at (910) 467-4188 to reserve your place in one of several yoga classes at different times free of charge.
