We all could benefit from bringing more balance into our lives. Our busy work and social calendars can burn us out and tire us out easily. That’s why we’re bringing you a series of recommendations for the best places to find disconnection and balance. We still believe leaving the city is the best way to recharge, but that’s not always possible, so it’s important to find sanctuaries even in the middle of our cities.
Here are our recommendations for our favorite places to rejuvenate in Atlanta.
Get in your daily dose of deep breathing with Sacred Chill West. This yoga and meditation studio offers classes for all levels and will teach you comfortable seating options and tips before leading you through a lightly guided session.
If you disconnect through strengthening your body and sweating it out, check out Dancing Dogs Yoga. This studio offers a “kick-ass, feel good yoga community” and Baptiste Power Vinyasa classes for a range of levels.
Take a break by taking yourself out on a stroll. The Atlanta Beltline is the perfect place to walk, take in the sights, and relax. With plans to connect 45 neighborhoods by the time it’s completed in 2030, this project will become one of the easiest places in the city to decompress.
If you need some help learning how to reintroduce balance into your life, sign up for a course at the Mindfulness Center of Atlanta. With everything from one-day retreats to eight-week classes, the center works to encourage well-being and healing as a way to enhance therapy and medical treatments.
These are all great practices to build balance back into your daily routine. Sometimes, though, nothing beats a quick and simple escape from the city.
