Stress. The invisible force that weighs down our minds, stifles creativity, and damages our health. It can’t be seen, but damaging stress is an unfortunate aspect of modern life. After a day of meeting urgent deadlines, handling unexpected car repairs, and making it to your kid’s soccer practice 15 minutes late, it’s likely you’re feeling the pressure. You may even contemplate leaving it all and relocating to a tent on the beaches of Fiji.
Before you make any regrettable life decisions, consider taking small steps to manage your stress. Yoga is a wonderful outlet to calm your mind, lower blood-pressure, and improve focus.
Yoga relaxes the mind, but it also has a long list of physical health benefits- improved cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, and strength, just to name a few. The South Bay offers several free or low-cost yoga groups to help bring back your zen.
