Jessie Smith
Increased fitness and physical discipline is accompanied by increased stress on the body. Is this ‘just the way things are’ or is it possible to incorporate balance and serenity into a strict fitness regiment?
If the increase in the counter-culture of yoga, spiritual influence and mindfulness teaches us anything, it’s that we can have both the yin with the yang, the water with the fire, without extinguishing any of the flames and passion that guides us toward a healthy, happy lifestyle.  Learn how to reduce stress on the body and mind without diminishing your fitness goals. Learn the physiological benefits of meditation, the importance of balance, and why this practice is called a “work-in.”
