We have personal experiences with stress, being stuck on a chair in front of the computer, or on our feet all day, and the sometimes overwhelming work load.
A recommended method for overcoming stress has, for many years, been exercise. We also believe that this is true – our population tend to be more and more physically inactive. However, newer studies have shown that people recovering from stress might not benefit simply by exercising. This is due to the fact that most of the exercise suggested or performed will stimulate the sympathetic nervous system which, for example, is responsible for our “fight or flight” response.
Through our specially created sequences, the physical part of yoga will have its effect on both the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system (“rest and digest”). We energize the body by performing the physical part of yoga, and then calm it down to let the body and mind rest and digest after having worked and stretched the muscles and joints. Always finishing as we begin – focusing on the breath.
Whether you are feeling stressed or pressured by a busy daily life, a yoga break during the day will have a positive impact on your concentration, performance and overall wellbeing.
As we come to you, there’s no need to rush to the yoga studio after work. The practice of the day is already completed.
