It Aids Concentration
Hectic lifestyles are a sign of the modern time. We all have to multi-task and there are distractions all around us that stop us from concentrating our mind on the things that are important. By taking a break at a yoga retreat or regularly attending yoga classes you can discover how to observe your breathing and learn calm, slow breathing techniques to focus your mind and expand your ability to concentrate on what really matters. The breathing exercises in yoga really help to calm the nervous system by switching from the sympathetic (fight or flight) to the para sympathetic (rest & digest) system of experience. Where we learn to really nurture ourselves using the mind.
It Brings A New Perspective to Life
Yoga classes or yoga holidays provide a blend of cultures, backgrounds and traditions. Your time will be spent sharing energy with people from all walks of life, helping you to gain a broader perspective on your own life and where it is heading. It could even have the potential to change your direction or view your surroundings in a new light, setting you on new path to a calmer, less stressful and more mindful future.
