New Year’s Resolution Hacks to Jumpstart Your Health Journey (As Seen In The Chicago Sun Times)

With 2020 upon us, it’s important to keep in mind that your health and fitness New Year’s resolutions are well within your reach. If you decide to make wellness a priority, you are sure to stay on track in 2020! 

Many of my private weight loss clients find themselves wondering what New Year’s resolutions they should have. Even though this varies from person to person, yoga is a fantastic place to start. Yoga is a great option for anyone who is looking to improve their fitness in the upcoming year because of how easily accessible yoga can be, as well as how many variations of yoga there are. There really is a form of yoga yoga that everyone can do, no matter their age! Yoga is also easily done in a home gym as well as on the go, making it a perfect choice for those who are limited on space. 

Another way to achieve your New Year’s resolutions is to be extremely specific. Why set the goal of ‘practicing yoga’ when you could set the goal of doing the yoga pose Bird of Paradise? Choosing to do the latter will help to visibly work towards your goals.

Take Advantage of the Heat in Your Yoga Practice

With the temperatures so high, it’s easy to feel lethargic and like you don’t want to do your regular practice. However, try opening up tight areas by utilizing the heat to go deeper into your postures:

– Twists are a great thing to do when it’s hot out. You’ll be able to more deeply “wring” out your internal organs and loosen up your spine. The heat makes your muscles more flexible.

– Go deeper into your forward folds. The heat will help tight low back muscles and hamstrings loosen up, so you can feel sensations you may not feel in the winter.

– Open up your chest and sides of your waist slowly, and hold the poses here a little longer to really get into the smaller muscles and origin and insertion points of the muscles.
