But equally there's a good deal of stress around so we need to allow ourselves the time to take care of ourselves. My yoga classes are designed to develop strength, balance and flexibility and through the process of moving from one posture to the next, the mind is focused on the body, the breath and the movement. Mindfulness.
In our yoga practice we are putting the body into physical stress and using the breath to release the nerve receptors in the muscles and tendons. This creates a behaviour pattern. When we are away from the mat and dealing with what life throws at us, we then find our response to stress is measured and calm.
If you are interested in these techniques, come along to one of my classes and see for yourself.
