Alternative ways to Exercise this summer

Summertime is when all of us Canadians collectively come out of our cozy caves and feel rejuvenated by the outdoor sunshine in our beautiful country! One of the loveliest ways to enjoy the warmer months, after long and dreary winters, is to get physically active in the heat.

There are a wide variety of outdoor exercise activities you can get up to this July and August. Here are some of my favourite ways to step outside of the gym and get moving in the great outdoors:

At-Home Practice vs. Studio Practice

At-Home Practice vs. Studio Practice

The space in which you do yoga is sacred. The room can have a major impact on your ability to relax and truly surrender to the present moment. While some people prefer to participate in yoga classes at a local studio, others find themselves yearning for the solitude that comes with practicing at home.

Why would someone choose either or? Here are some of the benefits of practicing yoga at a studio and at home:

Marco Island Yoga Group

Marco Island Yoga Group

A few weeks back in snowy Canada after my trip down south, and I still can’t stop thinking about my wonderful experience with Marco Island Yoga!

This Florida favourite is known for its phenomenal yoga classes and group meditations. As a busy traveler, I was thrilled to attend their classes and tune back into my body. While vacations are relaxing, it can be stressful on both the mind and body to be outside of your normal routine. I was delighted to bring my yoga practice with me all the way to the white sand beach!
