Skip the "Holiday Blues" with GYROTONIC® & Pilates | GIve the Gift of Movement
GYROTONIC® & Pilates Can Help You Skip the "Holiday Blues"
While it is the season of joy and celebration, no one is oblivious to the indulgence and stress the Holidays can bring into our lives. We’re constantly on the go, sometimes traveling long hours in the car or fighting the crowds to get that last-minute gift. All of this chaos can be exhausting and sometimes leads to illness or depression, which is no way to start the New Year.
So, how do we avoid falling into the trap of what some like to call the "Holiday Blues"? Here's how the GYROTONIC® & Pilates Methods can help, and why it just might be the perfect gift for you or a loved one this Holiday.
Bring Out Your 'Best Self' through Movement
Any movement or exercise is great during the crazy Holiday Season, but the GYROTONIC® & Pilates Methods will help to bring out your “best self.” Why? Our methods at Kinetic MKE are centered around the theme of mind/body practices (learn more about how these methods work HERE).
In many cases, this style of movement has been life-changing for our students and instructors (read Dawn's Story HERE). These methods release endorphins, which trigger positive feelings throughout the body and reduce pain. Certainly, this is a great way to fight off the winter blues and boost confidence any time of year.
Decompress & Align with GYROTONIC® & Pilates
The work we do in the studio helps to undo all of the awkward positions we experience, especially around the Holiday Season. When traveling to see our loved ones, we often subject ourselves to sleeping on uncomfortable mattresses or sitting in poorly designed seats in cars and/or planes. We also tend to push ourselves socially and lounge around a little more after too much indulging.
Year round, movement is critical to our mind and body - and these methods can help us decompress and realign. If you or someone you love could benefit from these methods, consider this one of the best - healthiest - stocking stuffers you can give.
Meditation in Movement
When we practice GYROTONIC® & Pilates Methods, we don't look at movement as something torturous or forced upon us; rather, it is something special to be experienced and embodied. There is meditation in this type of movement. When we take time to focus on ourselves and put energy into centering, aligning, breathing, and feeling, we receive a heightened sense of awareness, and this carries out into the real world. We resonate beauty and positivitiy.
Low energy, anxiety, stress, and depression - these are serious health issues that we need to pay attention to. If this is the time of year for giving, how can we give if we feel empty? How can we receive if we don't know our own value? Allowing ourselves to explore this form of meditative movement can transform our mental, spiritual, and physical state.
Why is Movement a Great Gift this Time of Year?
The greatest gift you could give someone this Holiday is to fall in love with their body, and with movement. A spouse, partner, mother, father, brother, sister, or your dearest friend - they are all perfect recipients of this gift! Also, make sure to take time for yourself, and your movement practice…it can be “moving meditation” that keeps you centered, strong, and healthy throughout the holidays.
