Yoga for stress control
Whether you choose to sweat it out with a session of hot power yoga or use some props to relax through some general postures, savasana (corpse pose) at the end of the session is an ultimate relief for the mind, body and soul. Yoga not only relaxes the body but, it clears the mind as well. So, by the time you finish your yoga session, most of the worries and tensions you started your practice with, may dissolve by the completion of your session.
People have accepted that they have experienced yoga’s anxiety-relieving benefits just after the very first session. But people who practice yoga on a regular basis, are able to lead a more balanced and healthier life.
So, if you too are dealing with depression and anxiety, include some simple yoga postures and breathing exercises to deal with the accumulated stress.
