Anusara yoga is a powerful method of hatha yoga which uses biomechanical principles of alignment to access heartfelt creative expression of spirit. Anusara yoga offers a dynamic synthesis of precise asana technique, accessible yoga philosophy, and friendly community. This yoga is appropriate for everyone from children to elderly. All you need is a willing mind and open heart!When you think of exercises that can help you relax, yoga is often the default. This is because yoga is all about remaining calm while maintaining some uncomfortable positions that slowly become more comfortable the longer you practice. Yoga is even a great way to help kids relax, as it can decrease stress and improve attention and behavior, according to a study by Wayne State University. And heck, if yoga can help even children find their calm, then you know that’s powerful stuff! Calming yoga is wonderfully beneficial in clearing the cobwebs from your mind and helping you to find your center. Stress Reduction: Intention by Samantha Matthews
