Stressing? Try Stretching. Welcome to Yoga 101.

Even when we’re not in the midst of a pandemic, there’s going to be stress in our lives. We can’t eliminate it – but we can be proactive in dealing with it. Yoga and meditation are two options to embrace. Longtime yoga enthusiast Melanie Lucks was kind enough to take us through a short practice – a step forward in building our stress-fighting toolkit, enhancing our calm and boosting our mood. (Yes, even in 2020.)

Yoga is a tool that helps me attempt to keep both feet in the present moment just taking issues as they come day by day and moment by moment, rather than letting things pile up and carrying the weight of the future and the past. — Melanie Lucks
