Women in the Military –Remembering their Strength

I just want to take a moment out of the day to appreciate and focus on our military women. It is incredible the lengths these women are willing to go to maintain freedom for their country. Whether they are on the front line or in intelligence, it is equally admirable. Whether or not, they have a husband or a child at home, I can only imagine the sacrifices they make and internal battle they have to fight. Yoga Warriors is appreciative of it is military women. We are honored to have them in class and we want our women to feel comfortable inside and outside of our healing environment.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga helps relieve the effects of chronic stress in several ways.  First, the use of props as described below provide a completely supportive environment for total relaxation.  Second, each restorative sequence is designed to move the spine in all directions.  The poses gently twist the column both left and right. Third, a well-sequenced restorative practice also includes an inverted pose which reverses the effects of gravity.  By changing the relationship of the legs to gravity, fluids are returned to the upper body and heart function is enhanced.

Warrior II Pose

Warrior II yoga pose

Warrior Two pose is my favorite pose because I feel empowered and the Yoga Warriors affirmation is "I am a Warrior of inner strength!" I repeat these affirmations three times and when I repeat them at least three times I feel strong and sure of myself. I can release feelings of inadequacy and fear. It is not an easy pose to hold but I love the challenge!

Relieve Anxiety and Stress with Asanas

One of the most useful yoga tools is a good asana practice, which burns off the nervous energy that can contribute to anxiety. A number of breathing practices, including abdominal breathing and lengthening the exhalation relative to the inhalation, help reduce symptoms of anxiety. Scientific studies suggest that left-nostril breathing can effectively reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety.
