How Yoga can help with stress?

The stress response has always been with us, as our prime instinct, when our ancestors had to flee from the dangerous animals or fight for food. The adrenaline rush, as we sometimes call it, in small amounts is very healthy and motivating. Even getting up from bed needs an adrenaline rush and higher blood pressure, which wouldn’t happen without our “built in stress response system”. There is no proven link between stress and disease, but because stress impacts on our immune system, few books mention a few stress related disorders like:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome IBS
  • Hypertension
  • Asthma
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Migraine
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

And that’s where Yoga can be used as a technique, tool to improve stress related symptoms.

Cost of the 5-week course is £35.
