In our daily lives, we can encounter many internal and external stressors.  When stress events occur this activates the sympathetic nervous system which mobilizes the body for immediate action possibly ending in state of exhaustion.
Yoga offers natural therapy for stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of our nervous system responsible for relaxation.  When you activate the parasympathetic part of your nervous system you activate its natural cool-down effects and stop the cycle of chronic stress.
A typical yoga class consists of deep breathing, gentle stretching, building strength and balance, quieting the mind and relaxation.
