Life and everyday issues can get stressful. An estimated 80% to 90 % of visits to the doctor are actually stress-related though less than 3% doctors talk to their patients about how to reduce stress.
Yoga believes in being non-judgmental toward both yourself and others, which is a powerful tool for stress relief as a lot of our stress comes from us being hard on ourselves or frustrated with others. Yoga helps to lessen stress because it brings relaxation. Yoga and meditation work to relieve tension and reduce stress in both the body and the mind, and it can make you more resilient when stress is triggered.
It is not necessary to feel stressed out to do yoga. A little bit of yoga every day often helps to handle things better and builds your ability to stay calm, focussed, balanced, and relaxed.
