People turn to Yoga for many reasons. To relieve stress, gain flexibility, heal the body, or perhaps to improve their energy. You can use Yoga for all these purposes but apart from the purely physical effects Yoga is also designed to help you create a unique inner journey of self-development and growth.
Meditation is a wonderful and powerful technique that can touch us in many ways, helping you to become more peaceful, centred and compassionate with others. Regular meditation has shown to have a definite effect on our physiological and psychological well-being. It has been proven to lower the levels of stress hormones, adrenelin and cortisol, within the body, thereby boosting immunity and contributing to happiness.
We all need someone to help or listen to us at some stage in our life. Compassionate, non-judgmental counselling, art therapy, (using techniques to help release your emotions & feelings—if you can draw a line you can do art therapy, no need to be an artist!) or life coaching are available to help you resolve personal conflicts & emotional issues. Your concern may be to do with stress around relationships, family, marriage/partner, life path, anxiety, depression, self-development, abuse, etc.
