Let’s face it, not all weddings are peaceful celebrations. Even in paradise the occasional slip up is inevitable. So, how do we ride the wave of chaos without letting it affect us on the big day?
Start the morning on the mat!
Whether you are a long-term yogi or a newbie to the ancient practice, a wedding day flow will set you and your loved ones free from the stresses of the day.
Bring it back to the breath
So much goes into the wedding planning process that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the seemingly endless to-do list. Though, instead of getting wrapped up in the entropy of the day, take a moment for yourself and focus on your breathing.
Your wellbeing, both mentally and physically, is key to a happy and successful wedding day. The team at Hoi An Events is there for you every step of the way, and with the Zen calm of a morning yoga practice, the stresses of the day will roll over you like waves on the shore.
Dedicate your practice
Instead of letting your mind wander to guest lists and seating charts, take a moment to dedicate your practice.
Meditate on the good things — your family, your loved ones, your husband-to-be and your future. Take a quiet moment to look around you. Hear the breeze whistle through the palm fronds and the gentle lap of waves on the shore as you rest in Lotus pose.
Dedicate your practice to everything that is important to you. Be grateful for what you have and the new journey you are embarking on.
Inhale love, exhale gratitude.
Make it an event
Don’t be afraid to share your practice with those who have come to celebrate with you. Instead of practicing alone, make it an event.
Connecting with your family and friends on a more spiritual level through yoga and meditation is a unique way to add meaning and depth to your wedding experience. Start with an early morning session at Nomad Yoga either in their Hoi An studio or at your resort. They offer plenty of options for all skill levels and are trusted friends of the Hoi An Events team.
Do something good for your body
And what wedding would be complete without layers of cake, frosting, filling meals, and endless champagne?
Instead of lamenting your day-of diet, relax and enjoy guilt free. A morning yoga practice will kick start your metabolism, allowing you to dance the night away without the bloat or the dizzying effects of the bubbly.
A yoga practice before your wedding day is not only beneficial for you, but also for the collective sanity of the group. Instead of trudging through the day like Bridezilla, let the little stresses of the day wash over you. Your mood is contagious and when you’re glowing, your party will be too.
It’s going to be a magical day.
