Goodbye stress with yoga!
Stress is part of our daily life and we cannot eliminate it completely, but we do learn to manage it so that it does not pass the bill and it reaches to overflow us.
Be aware that stress is nourished by thoughts; your own mind can even generate stress by worrying about things that will never happen. In this sense, the practice of yoga teaches the mind to be an ally instead of an enemy. By doing yoga you get in touch with a happier and calmer inner place, where worldly concerns find their place.
Another of the great tools brought from the East to release the high levels of stress to which we are subjected is meditation.
