Is Your Asana on the line!…

Monday 16th September 2019

In this fast-paced volatile world, we now live in, at some point we may feel overwhelmed by the demands of ourselves and others.  Stress levels are at an all-time high and heightened with pressure from all media sources, therefore it is important to take time out for yourself and ‘simply BE’.

This wonderful ancient practice works on the skeletal, endocrine, adrenal and circulatory systems of the body.  It’s hard to describe how Yoga makes you feel; you simply have to try it out for yourself.   It’s not just about Asana.  Yoga is a lifestyle.  It has 5 main principles which are correct & proper breathing, regular exercise, healthy diet, relaxation, mindfulness, meditation or quiet time.

The practice of Yoga & meditation has been scientifically proven to decrease stress levels, reduce anxiety and help reduce inflammation which could lead to more serious long-term health conditions.

Several studies have found that Yoga may decrease symptoms of depression by influencing the production of stress hormones in the body.

Yoga may help reduce chronic pain in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and osteoarthritis with the consent of your GP.

Yoga can enhance sleep quality because of its effects on melatonin and its impact on several common contributors to sleep problems.  Incorporating mindful breathing exercises could also help improve overall lung function.

Studies show that Yoga may stimulate the vagus nerve and reduce migraine intensity and frequency, alone or in combination with conventional care.

It encourages mindfulness, which may be used to assist eating a well-balanced diet, encouraging healthy eating habits and possible weight loss.

Incorporating Yoga into your life can help enhance your health, increase strength and flexibility and reduce symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.

Finding the time to practise Yoga just a few times per week may be enough to make a noticeable difference when it comes to your health, wellbeing and quality of life.
