Yoga for Stress Management

Yoga for Stress Management is simple, yet beneficial technique that provides many benefits to people of all ages.

Stress and tension are universal. They do not discriminate, as they affect people of all ages and from all walks of life. In today's society, often times we cannot prevent stressful situations; however, we can learn to manage and overcome them.

Yoga is renowned for its numerous benefits, but one of the most significant is the role it plays in stress management and reduction. There are several yoga techniques that can be used to alleviate stress in life as well as to rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit. Contrary to the popular belief, you do not have to practice an hour of yoga each day to attain results. In fact, just taking ten to fifteen minutes out of your schedule can prove to be extremely refreshing and helpful. This is especially beneficial to busy people who often find themselves pressed for time.

Yoga's several benefits can be seen by first examining the effects of stress on the body and mind, and then describing the breathing exercises and postures that can be utilized to overcome stress.

"I have studied under Vasanthi Bhat for several years and it has been a truly life changing experience. She is my teacher and friend. Her teachings have helped me to deal with the death of my father and the illness of my mother, but the most profound experience was my self healing.

A year ago my doctor found a suspicious lump in my breast. I had to wait two weeks to get a mammogram. During this time I practiced pranic healing which is directing prana - breath - life force to the area eight to ten times a day, sometimes more. I would meditate (visualize) that the lump was going away. I also did my regular yoga practice with heavy emphasis on postures like 'lying twist' and 'spinal twist'. These postures are known to help prevent breast cancer by increasing circulation to the breast area.

When I had my mammogram my doctor was really surprised as even cystic lumps had disappeared. I really believe in the mind-body connection and I continue to concentrate life energy to the weak areas of my body. Yoga really feeds my soul in every way."
