The morning of a wedding day is unlike any other morning - in the very BEST way possible. A joyful expectation of the life-changing covenant that is about to be made hangs in the air. The day ahead promises perfection. Everything about the careful preparation begins to feel ceremonious and beautiful. Those who mean the very most have come from near and far to shower with love, support, and celebration. There are few moments like these in life that should come with a pause button. How could something so anticipated be fully absorbed ?

Stretching is intricately connected to happiness. The hormones released from focused movement, pranayama breathing, and basic yoga poses help to deeply relax the bride. Cortisol (commonly known as the stress hormone) and adrenaline levels are both dramatically decreased through yoga, focused breathing, gentle stretching and calming essential oils. Mimoga will leave the bride and her bridal party feeling energized, relaxed, and centered.

 Before hair and makeup, before brunch, and before the non-stop wedding agenda begins, the instructor will meet the bridal party at the hotel, bridal suite, or private residence where they are staying. Yoga mats are provided and may be used if space permits. Because every wedding is so unique and personal, Mimoga is customized to fit the specific requests of each bride. Gift package options are available for the bride to customize for the bridesmaids as a token of appreciation and celebration. Options for these gift sets include fresh flower crowns, floral robes, monogrammed tanks or oxford shirts, personalized champagne flutes, and lavender scented cooling eye pillows. Monogrammed yoga mats are also an option for your bridesmaids to keep and re-use in their own yoga practice for years to come.

Once the Mimoga session begins; breath is found, hearts are settled, tensions are released, and figurative ‘pause buttons’ are pressed. The instructor demonstrates and guides participants through each movement clearly and provides options based on each individuals flexibility and fitness level. Safety and relaxation are of the utmost importance. For a few moments, the bride has the opportunity to find calmness in an experience with her bridal party that is truly something they will each remember forever. The gentle stretching, breathing exercises, and basic yoga poses can be a  pathway to connecting mind, body, and soul. Mimoga truly is the perfect start to the perfect day.
