If you have ever taken a yoga class, you may remember how you felt afterward: invigorated, peaceful, relaxed. While many people practice yoga and enjoy the physical benefits —flexibility and strength—it can be a valuable practice for those experiencing stress, insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

The Psychology of Yoga

Have you or someone you know found the practice of yoga to be helpful in reducing stress, sadness or anxiety?

I took a restorative yoga class this weekend and it really helped to calm my mind and relax my body.

What experiences have you all had with the practice of yoga?

I have found yoga to be very helpful with reducing stress. The breathing exercises seem especially calming to me. I try to practice a little each day to keep the tension at bay. I really notice the difference in how I feel when I miss a few days of yoga.

Sandra,
I have noticed that many Bellaonline editors practice yoga. smile

The other great experience I am having with yoga, is the decrease in pain I feel in my lower back.

It is truly a mind, body and spiritual experience!
