How a yoga practice can keep you calm during wedding season?



As most of my clients know I do have a yoga practice on the mat and off the mat. Often, I always get the popular question, how are you a wedding planner dealing with so many weddings, personalities, timelines, checklists all at the same time-how do you handle it all? The answer is Yoga.

Yoga is a connection between the mind, body, and spirit. It stimulates balance and rewards your body sense of healing, calmness, and confidence. That is how I can multitask and still be in the present moment with each client’s wedding. My yoga practice is like a daily cup of coffee- either through yoga asana, mediation, or focusing on my breath. It definitely keeps me prepared for the unexpected on a wedding day.

Usually, on a weekly basis I have been top of my wedding blogs on a weekly basis. However, for the past 3 months, I have been offline, due to my decision to go deep within my yoga practice to take the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Registered Certificate with Yoga Alliance that began in January through April. Thankfully I graduated and now I can share my practice.

How can yoga benefit you during your wedding plans?
I often hear from brides, I’m so overwhelmed, I have so much to do, I’m so tired, I have 3 more months until the big day and I didn’t lose any weight, I can’t sleep, I can’t breathe, I can’t stop, I’m scared, etc. Does this sound like you?

Well I have a remedy for you =)
Yoga is designed to meet your specific fitness goals, help you relax and renew, create a space for you to develop inner peace, tranquility, compassion, and grace. Yoga is not about how flexible you are or if you can do a “picture perfect” headstand- it’s about giving your body a gift to surrender and connect with your self physically and emotionally. No matter what, yoga will make you feel perfect and content just the way you are and your day will be close to perfect as it is destined to be.

Wedding planning and the actual wedding day can be a stressful affair. The 5,000 year-old practice of yoga helps brides-to-be, their fianc├ęs, family, and friends meet their fitness goals, relax, celebrate, and enjoy this momentous occasion.

In addition, we live in New York City, a city no place like it, the hustle and bustle, achieving our dreams, balancing transitions such as having a wedding, full time careers, and more- always on the go in a NY minute. We forget to breath in this fast pace city. Most couples are flustered when the time has come to walk down that aisle and they forget to breathe, panic, which takes you from the present moment- that is to live, laugh and love in your day! Yoga can bring the deep breath into the big day!

My Bridal Budget is revamping and taking a different holistic direction – that is to bring Yoga to wedding planning. I will offer private couple yoga sessions and/or have a private class packages with your bridal party and family. If you want a calming bachelorette party, bridal shower, or a wedding day maybe yoga themed class can just be the gift for you and your loved ones.
