Stress is everywhere and in everyone. For students, working mums, teachers and people who have their busy schedule, it’s a lot to balance. Prolonged stress takes it’s toll physically, emotionally and mentally and can affect everything from sleep, digestion and our relationships.
There are many different ways to cope with stress and one of these is yoga. Yoga is a mind and body practice and considered as one of the many types of complementary and integrative health approaches. It brings together physical and mental disciplines that may help us achieve peacefulness of body and mind.
Yoga requires no special equipment, so we can practice it almost anywhere. It involves stretching the body and forming different poses while keeping breathing slow and controlled. And the result? Our body becomes more relaxed and energized at the same time. Even a simple pose can loosen up tense muscles like in our neck, shoulders and back where stress usually starts.
How to get started? You can enroll on a beginners class if you want to be surrounded by others or have a private class if you’d rather be alone with the instructor. I’m happy to help you learn everything you need to know to make yoga a natural part of your daily routine and help you manage your life’s stresses well into the future.
