Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia
Yoga practices restore and maintain wholeness. They equally address imbalance and pain in our thoughts and emotions, as they do in the physical body.
Yoga is well known for its stress relieving effects. It might currently be the most researched aspect of yoga. Yoga has a great deal to say -- and teach us-- about restoring emotional and mental balance, and once restored about maintaining that balance. Physical practice certainly can discharge anxious, stressful energy. However, moving with the breath can help to train the nervous system to accept a calmer set point. Meditation practices can help you to understand your triggers and provide space to choose different responses. Breathing practices can teach you tools for emotional regulation.
