How can yoga help you? Lots of ways!
Many of us equate yoga to finding refuge from that which is overwhelming. We picture a lone person on a mountaintop in a traditional yoga position. While that seems like a great way to unplug from the world, who has time to travel to Tibet, right? The good news is that you can utilize yoga in more places than you might think once you have learned the restorative yoga sequences that give you the benefits you are looking for.
At Triveda Wellness, we can help you select and learn the yoga poses that are best for you and that you can readily do at home in Asheville, North Carolina whenever you need them. There are a vast number of yoga poses, each with its own benefits. Here are a few of the situations in which specific yoga poses can make a difference in your day and fit into your overall health and wellness goals.
- Post-Workout– Working out is a wonderful thing for your health, but it can be helpful to use some yoga poses afterward for added benefits.
- Weight Loss– Most people do not realize it, but yoga can be a part of your weight loss goals by reducing the stress hormone cortisol, which can undermine your efforts. Yoga is also a way to get back into moving when you haven’t been active in a while.
- High Blood Pressure– Yoga poses that are calming and include deep breathing have been shown to reduce high blood pressure, especially when used in conjunction with meditation. Since it is known that better sleep helps blood pressure, and yoga and meditation can improve sleep, it follows that you can lower your blood pressure with these methods.
- Life Transitions– Let’s face it– changes can be stressful! When you are facing something like divorce, loss of a loved one, or even positive changes like the birth of a child, using yoga to tether yourself to the present instead of worrying about the future can be quite beneficial.
These are just a few of the situations in which yoga can be helpful. We are happy to schedule a consultation with you to discuss the concerns that you have and develop a treatment plan, including yoga, meditation, or other natural remedies, to get you on the road to a happier you! Call today!
