The holidays are that time of year when many will become more aware and concerned with stress that shows up as anxiety, extra weight, poor digestion or irritability. Hillary Carlisle, a yoga  teacher and health coach, is offering Yoga OFF the Mat workshops, designed to give students holistic strategies for managing these challenges along with supporting health, throughout
December at the Movement Works Yoga Studio, in Calabash, as well as in the Myrtle Beach area and online.

“There is a science of yoga called ayurveda that tells us exactly how to eat for the health of our body and mind, and guides us in our lifestyle choices so that we can relieve symptoms of disease and prevent the occurrence of chronic illness,” explains Carlisle. “If there is a time we need these
tools most, it’s now.” The workshops introduce ayurveda and teach the yogic approaches to  nutrition, movement and spiritual practices.

Carlisle says she is excited to share these teachings throughout the holidays when students crave extra support managing issues like stress, anxiety, weight and digestion. “The physical practice of yoga is one of the most accessible and profound ways to improve health both physically and mentally, but I want students to know that their yoga and health doesn't stop at the mat,” comments Carlisle.
