We love practicing Yoga in our Mind/Body studio as the static poses and emphasis on breath help us develop focus, concentration and self control. Swimming is also a great activity to develop more focus as the body must move as one, along with the breath, in order to get from point a to point b without inhaling tons of water.

Most of our team loves to begin or end their day with reading a good book, reading has shown to improve one's cognitive development and empowers you to empathize with others.
Pro Tip: If you find it hard to fit in a good read in the morning or night, try to pass the time on our treadmills or stationary bikes with a good book. 😉 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐄𝐧𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 & 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐠𝐲
