Ohm! It’s time to find your balance — not physically but mentally. Balancing your mind allows your body to follow suit, even though it’s difficult to balance everything in a hectic life. Transportation, work, family, and even your own worries and fears can throw you off. The more it’s bottled up, the more stress starts to creep in and bring a whole host of unwanted side effects. We created our Chill Out and De-stress with this Yoga Routine for Beginners to give you an amazing intro to yoga. You’ll soon see that a steady practice can bring a happier life.
Stress manifests itself in different ways. Frequent headaches, feeling lethargic, becoming agitated, or never being able to relax or quiet your mind may be signs that you’re suffering from stress. Stress can cause an inability to focus on your daily life or enjoy things you once did. The best way to reduce stress is to work with yourself through a comfortable and freeing yoga routine.
We chose seven poses that transition from being upright in a squat all the way down to being on your back, relaxed and free. The key to success in this routine is to focus on your breathing. Each inhale and exhale paves the way to a more balanced mind and body.
Grab your mat, get comfortable, and get ready to lose the bad energy that’s been lingering around!
