3 Reasons Yoga Reduces Stress
As a yoga teacher, I often encourage my students to take a moment to consider what brings them to their practice and what they’re trying to cultivate. I find the majority of my students want to manage stress and cultivate a sense of peace. They want to feel calm and centered.
I’ve found in my personal life that when my practice dwindles (yes, that totally happens), my stress levels soar and my ability to manage stress seems to be lacking. When I reprioritize my practice, I feel strong, peaceful, and centered.
Here are three amazing reasons yoga reduces stress in our lives.
1. Yoga balances our body, allowing us to cultivate strength and flexibility.
Stress takes a toll on our bodies; it drains our energy, leaving us tense, tight, and tired.
