Does your super busy schedule have you feeling wound up? Then, step back, take a deep breath and try some yoga. The ancient practice, which enriches the union between the mind, body and soul, may be 5,000 years old but its teachings are still as useful today as they were back then. Reduced stress, increased flexibility and core strength are just a few of the many benefits practicing yoga can offer.

September is National Yoga Month and studios across the U.S. are offering a free class to all students, whether you’re practicing downward dog for the first time or able to twist yourself into a pretzel with ease. You also can stretch further and roll out a mat during a yoga retreat at a bed and breakfast. Along with finding your center, you can discover quiet walking paths, healthy meals and spa treatments not to mention enjoying some much needed time to R&R – relax and reflect.
Each morning of your stay at the Kismet Inn located in Bath, ME, can begin by cultivating inner peace through posture practice and yogic breathing during a yoga session at the inn’s Wellness Center. Afterwards, take a deep soak in one of the custom-made Japanese Style Soaking Tubs followed by a healthy meal made from natural and organic ingredients. Located in Jackson, NH, the Snowflake Inn will help you reconnect with yourself courtesy of pampering massages and a session of aqua yoga in the inn’s Tropical Indoor Spa featuring a serene waterfall.
