Yoga Sequence One Stress Relief and Preconception Video

Stress is a part of life, and yoga is a mind-body practice that’s an ideal way to manage it. Yoga has been shown to enhance mood and reduce feelings of anxiety, lower blood pressure, improve sleep and manage pain. This yoga sequence has been designed to improve breath control which has been linked to decreased feelings of anxiety and stress, as well as to loosen the shoulders (where we tend to hold tension). It also promotes confidence and loosens the large muscle groups in the hips which also can hold on to stress. The forward bends calm the mind and allow the spine to relax. This sequence is accessible to most bodies, and assumes you have no pre-existing injuries/conditions.
