Gather your girls, a few pink feather boas, and a gaudy beauty pageant sash that says “Bachelorette!” It’s wedding season—and with that comes the rehearsal dinner, the bridal shower, the next-day brunch, and of course the infamous bachelor/bachelorette party. It can all be overwhelming whether you’re the bride or groom, a member of the wedding party, or a regular wedding guest. No matter what your role in the big day, it’s the perfect time to do lots of yoga.
If you’re not (ahem) married to the traditional customs that come with all of the pre- and post-wedding events, consider opting for a yoga session instead. Hire a yoga teacher that specializes in wedding events (yogaforweddings.com) or simply ask a local teacher to lead the festivities. It’s healthier—and certainly more wholesome—than a night of cocktails and strippers, lets guests off the hook from buying yet another casserole dish, and is so much more gratifying that playing a how-well-do-you-know-the-couple game.
Have any of you attended or hosted a yoga wedding event?
