How to Control Stress With Yoga
by Eddie Lamb
The key to benefiting is to establish a practice or regular routine. Flexibility and fitness
are not required since there are modifications available. As strength grows,
practitioners can move into more difficult variations and further increase the
suppleness of the muscles. Classes are available in many places including community
centers, health clubs, and yoga studios. Very little special equipment is required.

There are several branches. They emphasize different types of poses as well as
variations in intensity. Finding the form that feels right on one's body can take time
but is well worth the effort. A good version to try first is Hatha. Its pace is slower and
its poses are relatively easy.

Studies have shown that yoga may help limit the effects of certain conditions like
asthma and PMS. However, it is also very well suited to reducing stress and anxiety.
With a consistent practice, at each session, the body becomes both relaxed and
energized. It may be the controlled breathing that targets stress best. Focusing on
the breath takes the mind away from other worries.

Here is one asana anyone can try now as long as the back is healthy. It is called the
cat pose. It increases familiarity with the body's center and helps with coordinating
movement and breathing. Begin on all fours, preferably on a padded surface so that
there will be less pressure on the knees. Make sure the hands are straight down from
the shoulders and the knees are straight down from the hips. Rock forward and back
gently to find the place where the spine is straight and the body is balanced. Inhale.
On the exhale, pull the abdominal muscles up and curve the spine. Drop the head so
there is a single semi-circular line running from the base of the spine to the top of the
head. Inhale and release the pose.

Developing a yoga practice requires commitment and discipline. However, it is well
worth the effort. Not only will the body become stronger and more flexible, the mind
will be more relaxed and resilient.
