New Year Resolutions

ing (pranayama), control of subtle forces (mudra and bandha), cleansing the body-mind (shat karma), visualizations, chanting of mantras, and many forms of meditation. In the West, yoga consists primarily of stretching exercises to increase flexibility, relax the body, build strength and coordination and achieve balance. BODEGA offers hourlong wake-up yoga sessions in the morning and candle-lit yoga sessions in the evening. These sessions are typically focused on either core strength or flow state. MEDITATION Meditation is a precise technique for attaining a state of consciousness - while awake - which clears and focuses the mind, relaxes the body and focuses us inward rather than on externals. Instructors at BODEGA are trained to quell excessive thoughts and distractions, thus opening the heart, using meditation techniques and overall positivity. This reflects on their Instagram page, full of happy faces and encouraging words. (@bodega.fitness.boutique) FITNESS Functional and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is offered in group classes led by passionate and encouraging instructors. During these 45 minutes of cardio, we alternate between high-intensity workouts and low-intensity recovery periods. This type of exercise is very beneficial to the heart and for improving metabolism. The intensity is tough for some, but instructors help us push through to achieve the fantastic state of satisfaction from each and every class. A full schedule of class times can be found on a free smartphone app called MINDBODY, where anyone can sign up easily online at just $25 per class. Individual and private training sessions are also available for those of us who learn best one-on-one. BODEGA instructors are equipped to meet us wherever we are on our wellness journeys and invite us to work at any pace. Whether we are experienced yogis or first-timers, new or seasoned at meditation, returning to cardio or continuing a fitness program, the team is serious about customizing personalized programs, which have been proven to be the most beneficial.
