The importance of yoga has been growing in recent years and there’s good reason for it. Our lives are busy both in and out of the office and it sometimes seems like we can’t keep up with everything going on. While stress can’t be eliminated, yoga can help prevent some of its causes or, at least, provide a healthy way to cope with it.
Roses Poses wants to let you know how yoga can be used to help those working hard at the office and at home. If you’re looking to build your yoga practice, come to the Roses Poses yoga studio located in Greenacres today.
Starting the day with low energy will result in you getting stressed quicker and easier which can lead to burnout. Practicing in the morning can help bring a jumpstart to your day. You can practice this easily in your home but if you need assistance, Roses Poses offers daily morning classes that can provide some helpful tips. You can even do certain yoga exercises right at your desk to help provide some energy.
Sometimes, stress can occur when you think of too many things at once. A brief session can help you clear your mind and focus on the task at hand. A large part of yoga is how you control your breathing which can play a huge role in reducing the stress in your mind. Try the Ujiayi Breath in between tasks to help clear your mind and refocus yourself.
Sitting at a desk and staring at a computer all day does more than just hard our eyes. It can also lead to lower back pain, stiff neck, and other physical pains which can add to office stress. Regular practice can help reduce these pains and even strengthen your muscles and bones enough to prevent them from happening as frequently.
Sitting in an air-conditioned room all day doesn’t allow your body to sweat which is how your body usually eliminates toxins. Yoga won’t necessarily make you sweat (unless it’s a heated room) but it does help detox in other ways. Certain poses help stimulate blood circulation which helps your organs function healthily.
All of the feelings in your body are a result of biochemical reactions in your body. Yoga can help release the chemicals that help improve your mood. Specifically, yoga helps produce oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone”. They flood your body with feelings of happiness, thus balancing out the stress hormones at the same time.
Yoga comes with incredible benefits. Even a few minutes of gentle breathing can help balance your mind and body. There’s no better time to start your yoga journey than today. Let Roses Poses show you the beauty of yoga. Visit our contact page if you have any questions.
