The holidays are often about what we can do for others and that’s great. At the end of the day, nothing will make you feel better and more fulfilled than doing for others, promoting kindness and spreading cheer. That’s why we’ve been posting daily tips on ways to make others happier this holiday season with our December Kindness Calendar. Be sure to check it out and follow along with us daily to be your best self this month.
That being said, you can’t fill from an empty cup. The holidays are a special time of year but they can also be very draining and difficult. Financial obligations, personal commitments, end of year deadlines at work and more can lead to a very challenging time. For this reason, we put together a list of five things you can buy and do for yourself at The Hot Yoga Spot this month to change your life and improve your practice. These ideas range in price to fit any budget and include everything from enjoying a relaxing workshop to adventuring on the vacation of your life.
1- Yoga Workshops
A yoga workshop is a great way to explore your practice in a new way and pamper yourself when you need it. Workshop prices start as low as $25 and do a world of good for you and the way you feel. At The Hot Yoga Spot, we offer workshops and special events across the Capital Region to help you feel your best. This Saturday we have two great options to choose from. Enjoy a Holiday Self Care workshop with Mary Beth at The Hot Yoga Spot Clifton Park or a Restorative Aerial experience with Elissa at The Hot Yoga Spot Stuyvesant Plaza. Both of these are designed to help you relax, release and recharge this holiday season. You can come alone or sign up with a friend and make a say out of treating yourself right and connecting with yourself and each other. Click here to learn about our special offerings this month.
2- Treat Yourself to a New Yoga Mat
If you practice regularly and want to take it to the next level, a high quality yoga mat is the perfect place to start. We sell Jade yoga mats at The Hot Yoga Spot for just $75 and they are perfect for those extra sweaty classes. A high end mat will instantly stop you from slipping on your mat and the extra grip will make it easier to tackle complex poses. If you have been practicing for years but haven't invested in a good mat, make it a quick holiday gift for yourself this year or ask for it from a loved one. We know you will see a big difference in the way you feel and move from your very first class and you’ll be so happy you decided to go for it. Grab a matching branded yoga towel at The Hot Yoga Spot to go with it and you’ll be sweating in style.
3- Sign up for Auto-Renew
If you have been dropping in for classes occasionally and enjoying your experience, this is the perfect time of year to commit to an unlimited package. Signing up for auto-renew gives you one of our best prices for yoga and barre classes at The Hot Yoga Spot and is a great way to motivate yourself and prioritize your health during the holidays. This package can be enjoyed at all of our locations so you have 200 opportunities a week to enjoy mindful movement and focus on your breath and body.
