Title: How Yoga Can Help You Reduce Stress

How Yoga Can Help You Reduce Stress
Relax The Body
Yoga practiced in the right way can be as
soothing as a hug or a massage when it comes to
reducing tension and relaxing the physical body.
Certain postures have a deeply calming effect on
the whole system, particularly forward bends and
inversions. Balasana's is wonderful ability to
soothe the adrenal glands and create internal
and external calm. Restorative and Yin are great
styles for practicing the art of letting go as
is Shavasana/relaxation at the end of a yoga
Relax The Mind.
Meditation is an incredibly powerful tool for
relaxing and slowing down the mind as is any
kind of breath awareness. Whether youre holding
postures, flowing through sequences, or in a
seated meditation pose, everything begins to
focus and slow down when you take your awareness
to the breath. Over time and with repeated
Meditation Training practice, you start to
develop new habits towards a more relaxed
internal state.
Breathe More Effectively
Stress and tension can cause us to breathe in a
rapid, shallow way, which can lead to more
anxiety. Yoga training school gives you the
opportunity to breathe more effectively, using
the diaphragm and utilizing the whole lung
capacity. Certain Pranayama techniques are
useful for reducing stress, particularly
Brahmari (humming bee breath), Nadi Shodhana
(alternate nostril), and Ujjayi (victorious)
breath. Left nostril breath can have an
internalizing and calming effect too.
Develop Connection Between The Mind And Body
When the mind and body are connected, theres
generally a greater sense of harmony and ease in
our lives. The body sends important signals when
something is off balance, which happens so often
when we are under pressure. Having the ability
to respond is therefore really important for our
wellbeing. Yoga teaches us to be sensitive to
each movement and to listen to our bodies. The
practice encourages us to exist in the present
moment and to live in a more mindful, conscious
and connected way.
Understand How Your Mind Works
Yoga Dubai can help us develop awareness of how
our own unique mind works and that awareness can
help us live in a more conscious way. As an
example, when we are in a challenging place on
the yoga mat, awareness lets us see how our mind
responds to stress. Our reaction might be to
immediately pull out of the pose. Or perhaps
its to push ourselves further. It might be to
get angry at the teacher, or it might be to roll
up the mat and get the hell out of there.
Release Emotional Energy
Negative emotions like fear, anger and guilt can
cause stress, particularly if they are not
expressed. A build up of anything creates
pressure. Emotional pressure often gets released
in an unrefined way, such as shouting at your
partner, snapping at a work colleague or getting
unreasonably fired up that you got a cappuccino
when you ordered a vanilla latte! If you feel a
bit wound up, try taking a hip opening
meditation course and notice how you feel
afterwards. If any residual emotions come up,
notice them and then simply spend a few minutes
letting them go via the exhalation.
