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.
Give yourself some well deserved relaxation at East Bank Yoga Studio.

I am looking forward to teaching yoga this evening via the Zoom platform that has been a safeguard platform since March. We meet with a good mind. Movement comes from spirit. As I feel this delightful enthusiasm to teach class I am reminded and share, with a regular energy or yoga practice you tap into the energy source within you. This evenings class will begin with a singing bowl meditation, tapping into harmony within. Followed with a let’s go, let go warm warmup, a few strength challenges, and then flowing into a Shakti sequence connecting with your divine light and energy. Registration required 24 hours prior to class at email@example.com Class price $12.00 or punch card purchase. See website for more information. Namaste, Jill Moncur
