Where do you carry your tension? Have you thought about it? Do you know? I carry mine in my shoulders and neck. I found this out when I started to notice every time I was really stressed out my neck would tighten up and my shoulders would pinch a little! It got so bad I was going to get massages on a weekly basis! That was getting expensive. My stress wasn't really going away and now I'm even more stressed about all of the money I was spending on massages (I was single at the time...no honey to massage me! haha).
So I spoke with a friend who is a yoga instructor and she told me that doing yoga would reduce the symptoms I was having and prevent them from coming back!
Vanessa CAsillas, PsyD says the benefits of yoga are many! In addition to flexibility, yoga is also good for improving muscle tone, weight management, quieting our minds, cardiovascular health and balance!
