Stress is the biggest enemy of a human being today. The urgency of meeting deadlines and the expectations of greater achievements in a shorter periods of time have short circuited human brains. Therefore, hearts have become heavy and bodies have become stiff. There is a way through yoga, to change this.
Yoga, done correctly, helps alleviate stress. The most important aspect of Yoga is the emphasis on breathing techniques which helps the body to relax and the mind to focus and become calm. This is the connection between the inner world and the outer world, also known as microcosm and macrocosm.
We establish equilibrium. Many changes take place inside the mind and body due to stress. Stress causes digestive systems to break down and disrupts the nutritional fuel line of the body and mind. Then, the body starts to breakdown. This creates an imbalance of alkalinity/acidity which causes the body to feel stiff and sore.
Unlike machinery, we have a great gift. The body and mind have a great capacity to regenerate! This is one of the reasons human beings ignore the few signals of breakdown and keep going - but not at full capacity!
