How does practicing yoga with me help you?
Let’s be honest, everybody gets tired sometimes.
There are super busy weeks when you have very little time to yourself and the energy expenditure reaches almost beyond the scale.
How does your body react to this in a long run?
It wants to switch off and just screams for a quiet relaxing time. May try to resist you moving it and refuses to sleep.
Have you ever been so tired that you couldn’t sleep?
When this happens you may feel wired, your body aches and doesn’t really want to move anymore but you are far cry from being still in your mind.
Your mind becomes restless and seems to be spinning around, anxiety rises and your mind starts producing all sorts of useless thoughts that stress you even more unless you realize what is going on…
It all means it’s been too much and you should have taken more care of yourself and rested whenever you had a chance and space for it.
Our body was designed to be healthy and to function well.
It’s continually trying to be at balance; however we often don’t allow it.
We all know how to put a physical and mental stress on ourselves but do we know how to control it?
Stress is actually a normal part of life. It serves a useful purpose at times. Stress can motivate you to get your project working, implement changes at work or your life, or win a competition. But if you don’t put the brakes on your stress and it becomes a long-term condition and can seriously interfere with your job, family life, mental health, physical health; with all your life basically.
Managing your stress can make a big difference not only to your health but to all levels of your life.
How do you manage your stress?
Great way to manage stress is working in and cultivating energy.
Breathwork, practicing yoga and meditation are great ways to work in.
Incorporating mindful practice of yoga and/or meditation into your life will assist your body and your mind stay balanced.
Mindful breathing and yoga movements and postures allow trapped toxins to be released from tissues and fresh nutrients to flow to your organs. Yoga releases the tension in our body.
Practicing yoga requires you to focus on breathing and sensations throughout the body and by doing so you learn how to be “present in the moment”. This allows us to relax and shift from the “fight or flight” nervous system response to stress factors to a calmer state.
The heart rate lowers, blood pressure decreases and the blood flow easier to all our organs. This aids our overall physical and mental health.
As our bodies become stronger and better nourished our mental state change as well.
We become more aware of ourselves, of others and more compassionate to ourselves and others.
