Gentle yoga is all about how to ease you into feeling your best. Using gentle postures and relaxed breathing exercises, you can effortlessly plunge into the benefits of lengthening your tissues while nurturing grounded, stabilizing strength.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. Nourish Yourself: Yoga for Relaxation by Brett Larkin
