This week we are pairing the Care by Design effect “Rest gummies'' with a restorative yoga practice. This practice is unique because rather than flowing through many different poses and heating up our bodies in a more active practice, we passively hold poses for a longer duration in order to shift and retrain the body to shift from the sympathetic to the parasympathic nervous system.
The new Effects line from Care by Design has inspired me to create complimentary yoga sessions! Yoga also has many different forms and depending on your needs, there is a practice that is right for you. From an energetic and heating practice like Vinyasa and Ashtanga to slow and gentle classes such as yin and restorative, yoga fits every body. So, this month, I will bring you four different styles of yoga that can be paired perfectly to each specific Care By Design Effects formula to help you feel amazing during and after the session.

Traditionally, the yoga asana-s (postures) are practiced on a mat with a teacher guiding the practice. As my personal practice grew, I realized that yoga can be incorporated into many different aspects of my life. The practice that happens off the mat has transformed me in so many ways. I practice breathing when I drive to quell road rage, pause and stretch during hikes to reduce joint pain and practice around incredible scenery while taking in all the magic that happens in the great outdoors.
