Yoga

Yoga practice, meditation practice and active self inquiry are used as tools of transformation – encouraging us to reclaim our full potential, discover creativity, awaken passion, create authenticity, confidence and new possibilities.

There really is something to the “happy yogi.” Doing one hour of “asanas”- a sequence of standing, sitting and balancing poses helped avid posers raise their levels of the brain chemical GABA (low levels are linked with depression) by 27 percent compared with a group who read quietly, a study from Boston University School of Medicine and McLean Hospital reports.

Namaste the stress away! Women who had gone to the mat at least once a week for two years or more released 41 percent less of a tension-triggered cytokine (a type of protein) that can make you feel tired and moody compared with yoga newbies, a study in Psychosomatic Medicine notes.

If you cannot get to a studio there are tons of DVDs you can do at home. I love doing them at home, I feel so relaxed afterwards and I am able see the benefits in everything I do!
