yoga to transform your body
Unfortunately, modern life can play havoc with the health of our bodies. If you've done any time sitting behind a desk for 8 hours a day, week in week out, you'll know what we mean. Not only that, but the pace of life these days can cause anxiety and stress in many of us. Did you know that when you are stressed you can stop absorbing nutrients from your food? I know right. Stress is B A D.
The truth is we nearly all have something in our bodies that needs balancing - whether it's flexibility, strength, stress or systems (circulatory, endocrine, digestive, nervous and more). Perhaps even stuck emotions causing pain that need release. Yoga knows how to address the issues in the tissues to benefit and balance all aspects of your physical and emotional bodies.
And when it comes to anxiety and stress, the greatest gift of yoga is understanding and learning how to identify and address which part of your nervous system is activated. Recognising when you are stressed and employing tools to calm the mind and body means better digestion, better sleep, an increase in self-confidence and will generally make you more fun to hang out with.
We should warn you though. Your physical body may have a reaction to practicing yoga. Symptoms may include more toned arms and legs, a stronger core, superior balance and a sense of freedom throughout your body you have never experienced before.
Oh and don't forget the fuzz. Fuzz builds up inbetween the layers of fascia in your body as you sleep. Fuzz makes you feel stiff and restricted. To melt fuzz, you need to move. We really can't explain this well but we know a smart boffin who can in this video. Warning - there are lots of gross images of the inside of dead bodies. Ugh. If that makes you feel queasy, don't watch - just listen. Or watch and faint, it's up to you.
