Yoga is a scientific discipline of removing or eradicating stress and tension at its source.
All tension, both physical and mental, is stored somewhere in the body and true stress reduction is a matter of discovering how to release that tension on both levels.
Yoga programs directly address tension in both the body and the mind. Our classes remove stress from both sources since tension in one area has a direct effect on the other. This is crucial for all employees, and especially for heart patients, since stress directly and indirectly affects the heart and heart health.
The classes offer simple, safe, and practical techniques that quickly reduce tension and stress at any time and place, especially in the office.
Our classes provide you with the following:
Ways to identify stress signals and indicators
Posture improvement for tension management
Strength building for greater resistance to stress
Techniques for the workplace designed to alleviate tension before it builds into stress
Safe exercises (designed over 2,500 years ago) that bring more energy to the body
Breathing techniques that support healthy "Mood Management"
Techniques designed to reduce stress, blood pressure, angina, and other symptoms and risks for those who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, have had heart surgery, or are otherwise at risk for heart problems (Corporate Cardiac Yoga®).
