What comes to mind when you think about Relaxation?
Facial. Detox. Relax. Unwind.
Spend this week in our virtual spa and do one gentle set of exercises every day that will lift your face, purify your body, relax your mind, and unwind your muscles. Each of the following “workouts” are more about leaving the work behind and connecting your mind to your body… However, they’re also about disconnecting…
… Because sometimes you just need to be alone with your mind, body and soul in a quiet place and just let your worries drift away…
So take six days out of your coming week to find a quiet corner. Choose each day’s video based on the time you have to set aside yet try to give yourself at least 30 minutes to really create your own S.P.A. experience.
- S – Sip on some tea or other decaffeinated beverage that will help mellow out your mood. Set up a place away from distractions, and close yourself in.
- P – Props and Preparation: Find the props you’ll need for each video and prepare your body to relax by taking a hot shower or a long bath. Put on some loose, relaxing clothes that have nothing to do with your normal role in life.
- A – Aromatherapy adds a lot to your experience. Light a candle. Warm some essential oils. Lavender and chamomile are very relaxing. Also, allow yourself to stay for a while once the video is done. Take time to be still and just sit, think, breathe, pray.
The following progression of routines are also quite relaxing, even as they get progressively more strenuous to the core and outer body.
“There is a “workout” in the week of relaxation called Bedtime Meditation. I often listen to it on my phone when I go to bed when hubby is out of town cause I have trouble falling asleep sometimes when he’s not there. And it totally works. I don’t think I have ever heard the end of that “workout”. Keep meaning to tell you this Beth – I love it!” -Jennifer M.
“I’m so thankful for the neck routine. I have just gone from a neck that was so sore and inflamed, I had to ice it for a good part of the night, to a neck that feels like…a painless body part. It feels great! This might be the routine I’m currently most thankful for (with Kelly’s stretching routines coming in at a close second). -Erica W.
