Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 4, 2006
"One in five Americans are worried that holiday stress could affect their physical health and 36% say they either eat or drink alcohol to cope with holiday stress," according to a recent survey conducted by the American Psychological Association. More and more people are turning toward yoga as a means to relieve the pressure, tension, and fatigue commonly known as the "holiday blues." By offering downloadable yoga classes in MP3 audio format, Yogi2Go.com brings yoga into the homes of people who have difficulty finding time to get to a yoga studio when work, shopping, cooking, entertaining guests, and other demands of the holiday season take over their time.
Acknowledging that many of us cannot help indulging in eggnog or say no to second helpings, Yogi2Go.com offers a new class this December called "Twist and Cleanse" - a practice to wring out the toxins in the organs that can build up from holiday alcohol consumption, and help stimulate the digestive and elimination systems bogged down with family dinners. Add the "Third Eye Meditation" to quiet the mind and connect from within, and you've got a recipe to keep you clean, clear, and refreshed no matter how many holiday parties you have to attend.
"The holiday periods are among the busiest long-distance travel periods of the year," reports the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, "During the Christmas/ New Years Holiday period the number rises by 23%, compared to the average number for the remainder of the year." For these travelers dealing with the mad rush of holiday flying, Yogi2Go.com offers a unique set of classes: the "In-Flight Yoga Suite." All of the In-Flight Yoga classes are designed to be practiced within the confines of your airplane seat, while waiting for your flight, at your destination hotel or home, or even during layovers. "We even have a short 'Yoga for Commuters' class you can practice behind the wheel to ease the stress of those holiday traffic jams," adds Mark Governor, producer and co-founder of Yogi2Go.
Specialty classes such as "Restorative Yoga," "Yoga for Difficult Times," and "Yoga for Times of Anxiety" help calm the nerves of having to deal with visiting relatives, while other classes such as "Energize Flow," "Dynamic Vinyasa Flow," and "Agni Flow Intermediate" infuse you with the energy you need to entertain them.
"We're hearing of many people who are resolving to start a daily yoga practice in 2007," says Governor. To help those who have never practiced yoga before, Yogi2Go.com offers a simple short practice called "Yoga for Stiff Guys" designed for opening up the hamstrings and shoulders, as well as an hour long "Beginner's Gentle Flow." A "Gentle Prenatal" class and a "Hip Opener" class are also available.
Look out for other new additions to Yogi2Go.com's roster to ring in the New Year: the "Grounded Heart Opening" practice and the "Intention and an Open Heart meditation." Both the practice and the meditation invite strength into the body while at the same time cultivate a loving and open heart, allowing you to move into this coming year and all its possibilities with intention and with grace.
Tracee Newell, co-founder of Yogi2Go.com reminds us, "The great Indian philosopher Adhi Shankara said, 'all that happens is waves rising and falling neither inauspicious or meaningful.' And it is with his illumination about the nature of reality that we can begin to incorporate Yogic philosophy into our daily lives as we navigate the potentially stressful times of the holiday season."
Created by Mark Governor and Tracee Newell, Yogi2Go is owned and operated by people who have taken yoga off the mat and into their daily lives. Our intention is to provide authentic yoga practices in a downloadable MP3 audio format that is always accessible, no matter where you are, featuring carefully selected instructors who embody the true essence of yoga and its teachings.
