A Restorative Yoga Practice For Stress and Anxiety
If stress is a constant in your life. If you ever feel the deep sensation of pressure on your chest from panic-inducing anxiety, then this restorative yoga practice is for you.
Today, many of us live a fast-paced lifestyle. We are in constant competition for the job, the home, and the success. With this constant doing and competitive lifestyle comes a detrimental toll on our bodies. We end up in a chronic state of stress with our nervous systems in the Sympathetic "fight-or-flight" state. This means that our adrenaline, cortisol, and blood pressure levels skyrocket and important bodily functions like digestion and reproduction shut down.
Restorative yoga is designed to bring your body back into the Parasympathetic "rest-and-digest" state, normalizing your bodies' functions, relieving your tension and anxiety, and allowing you to take on the world from a place of calm and ease.
