Yoga for Stress Relief
Everyone is a bit too stressed out these days between work, personal lives, and intruding technology. This yoga for stress relief video will have you feeling better in no time!
Stress… Everybody’s got it. How bad can it be?
Really bad, if left unchecked.
It can be the reason you are steadily gaining weight (or can’t lose it), your skin is looking not so “glowy” lately, having trouble sleeping, or why your immune system sucks lately.
Stress can come from all sorts of places, and you may not even realize it creeping up on you.
Looming deadlines, traveling, diet, relationships, and the constant bombardment we receive from our email inboxes and smartphones can all put increasing pressure on us both mentally and physically.
While you may think that going for a run or hitting the gym will relieve some of your stress, there is an even better option.
Yoga works especially well to fight stress, because it naturally raises your cortisol levels.
This yoga practice is full of gentle yoga poses that will help you practice mindful breathing and gentle movement while your stress melts away.
This particular ‘yoga break’ is perfect for transitioning from your work day into a relaxing evening at home.
Let me introduce my favorite yoga instructor and personal friend, Kris Moon.
Kris is a yoga and mindfulness teacher, who found her true calling to her practice while studying ancient techniques rooted in yoga in India.
In her own words…
“Through ancient systems like Yoga and the contemplative practice of Mindfulness Meditation, I offer you simple tools to better navigate the path of whole-hearted living.”
Remember to breathe deeply and slowly as well as listen to your body throughout this practice. It will help you gain a deeper understanding of your body and which yoga poses best serve you.
