With everything life throws our way, it’s important to take a step back, take a deep breath, and commit to practicing self care. Throughout June, Yelp’s Summer of Self Care allowed Connecticut yelpers to celebrate local businesses that stress the importance of de-stressing. We kicked off the month by sampling handcrafted artisan teas from Whole Harmony and snacking on tea-inspired cupcakes from NoRa Cupcake – all while learning about the soothing properties of herbs and botanicals. Next up, we got a chance to unwind with a calming candlelit yoga session at Rise Yoga, complete with essential oils.
Vasu Studio guided us through an energizing core yoga practice, then showed us how to build our own aromatherapy face steams in their onsite apothecary. At Empowered Indoor Cycling, the community practiced self care through a high energy ride that burned through stress (and plenty of calories). Closing a truly impactful series, we practiced candle meditation and improvisational movement with the remarkable team at Tainted.
Thank you to the amazing local businesses that continue to reinforce the importance of practicing self care in our community. Want to learn more? Check them all out for yourself!
