Using Yoga To Reduce Stress and Find Peace This Holiday Season

Each holiday season brings with it plenty of joy—and it can also cause its fair share of stress: searching for those perfect gifts, managing hectic holiday travel, keeping up with all the events and parties on your calendar, and more. With all the beautiful busyness the holiday season brings, you might be tempted to take a break from your mat. But, the holidays are even MORE of a reason to head over to Shockoe Slip Yoga, unroll your mat, and enjoy some much-deserved “me-time.” Yoga is proven to reduce stress, increase your sense of peace and calm, and improve your overall well-being—plus, a challenging Vinyasa Flow or a restful Yin class is a great way to release any travel-related physical tension too.

Speaking of finding the perfect present for everyone on your holiday gift list, why not give the gift of yoga this year? A Shockoe Slip Yoga gift certificate is a great way to share your love of yoga with family and friends, and we always love welcoming new members into our SSY family. We also offer massage services—and let’s be honest, everyone loves massages!

This month, we’ve got a special event for you. On Thursday, December 21, join us for a donation-based 75-minute Winter Solstice practice designed to welcome the transition of seasons, uplift your spirits, and balance your energy. We’ll combine asana (postures) and pranayama (breath work) to soothe your body, mind, and nervous system. And after class, be sure to stick around for our holiday party and potluck!

We’d also like to remind you that our upcoming retreat, Chasing Adventure On The Amalfi Coast, is fast approaching! Be sure to take advantage of our Early Bird Special by January 1! Visit: to reserve your spot. We can’t wait to see you there.
