“I typically don’t break a sweat,” she says. But once she started hydrating throughout her entire sunset workout, she tapped into a level of energy she didn’t know existed. “I find my zen with every sunset. Now, I feel more energized, refreshed and ready to follow the next day’s rays.”
As poet T.S. Eliot put it, “The end is where we start from.” Ending yoga practice with friends and a clear state of mind sets Sarah up for success the next day.
She’s worked hydration into her routine, finding that the perfect time to sip is while she jots in her journal after yoga practice. Sarah feels the most centered after savasana, finding it to be an ideal time to write down three things she’s grateful for that day.
“I’m so aware of my body, mind and spirit in that moment – it’s been a perfect time to replenish with water and literally feel the benefits of hydration throughout my whole self,” Sarah says.
“I love the my new HidrateSpark TAP 32oz bottle! The glow alerts help me stay on track and the new larger size allows me to have water throughout the day.”
The trio takes turns leading each other in practice. Their friendship began at a local gym, when they found they had a shared experience of enjoying the sweat, but they lacked the focus and fulfillment within the confines of a building. “We were all looking for something more, but didn’t quite know how to explain it,” says Olivia. They walked the beach trying to find the words for what their workout lacked, and it hit them all at once as they looked out to the horizon. “It’s like the sunset was there just for us that night, letting us know we were already in the right place,” shares Ali.
Reconnecting with each other in new ways and finding meaning in each sunset continues to drive the group of friends in their search for a fully lived life. “It’s not about setting and forgetting,” Sarah says in regard to her routine.
“It’s about making sure I constantly feel like I’m growing. I couldn’t do that without the extra hits of energy that my friends – and my hydration – give me.”
Yoga Poses to Find Your Zen
Corpse Pose (Savasana)
No, it’s not just a fancy nap. Savasana requires a completely calm mind, making it one of the most challenging poses. Release any effort from holding any tension in your body (even your face). Lay on your back and find a deeper understanding of your true self by unifying your body, mind and spirit.
