“By practicing Yoga, we are learning to free ourselves from the cycle of stress that many of us get caught in. We learn how mindful stretching, relaxation, deep breathing and meditation can quickly interrupt the pattern of stress and reactivity, and restore physical and mental balance. These same practices done regularly, even for a short time daily, can create a deeply rooted sense of inner steadiness.
As we cultivate internal steadiness, we also develop the present moment awareness needed to make conscious choices when crisis arise, instead of reacting compulsively in ways we later regret. Regular practice equips us with tools that help us keep our balance, reflect with clarity and think creatively.”
