Holding your asana is important in yoga, however, it’s just as important to calm your mind and control your breathing. Focusing on breathwork helps you relax, connect to yourself and discover internal balance. In this hectic world, it’s important to find a way to relax and centre yourself to manage stress and maintain wellbeing. Relaxation will help you become more confident, make better decisions and deal more effectively with the stress of everyday life.
Our Newcastle Iyengar Yoga Studio is designed to support you find relaxation and peace through regular practice. Our fully certified teachers are ready to help improve your wellbeing, build your confidence, guide you towards self care and show you how to better manage stress.
How do you rate your current levels of stress on a scale of 1 to 10? If you scored yourself a 5 or higher, it’s time to review your stress levels and what you’re doing to manage them. Focusing on asana and breathwork, yoga helps clear your mind and gives you the chance to take a break from the constant whirl of everyday life. It’s the perfect tool for stress management.
With regular practice, yoga builds confidence that will seep into every other part of your life. As you improve your breathing and your pose, you will discover renewed belief in yourself and in your capability. Taking time out to connect your body, mind and soul will help you better understand yourself and give you a fresh feeling of confidence in dealing with everyday life.
Yoga delivers a host of physical health benefits, however, the mental and emotional wellbeing that comes with regular practice cannot be overstated. Yoga presents an opportunity to disconnect from the noise of everyday life, giving your mind and soul the chance to rest, reset and recover. Yoga is ideal for protecting and nurturing your mental and emotional wellbeing.
When was the last time you gave yourself permission to stop and do something just for you? For ongoing health and wellbeing, it’s vital that we prioritise self care. And, there’s no better way to do this than with regular yoga. The holistic benefits of regular practice feeds your mind, body and soul, giving you the most bang for your self care buck.
