In the modern world and with the kind of lifestyles we have, stress is all too common. Social stress, defined by Wikipedia as "...stress that stems from one’s relationships with others and from the social environment in general. A person experiences stress when he or she does not have the ability or resources to cope when confronted with an external stimulus (stressor), or when they fear they do not have the ability or resources." gives rise to many corollary physiological disorders such as ulcers and heart disease. Thus, stress management techniques are important to negate or minimize the effects of stress. Many techniques can be used for combating stress, including a well regulated diet, moderate exercise, social adaptations to remove the source of stress, etc. For optimum results, one needs to combine the different ways into a personal "stress-buster" plan, depending on what works best for a certain person. Among the physical methods to combat stress, yoga can be a potent weapon towards a healthier lifestyle.
Yoga in its broadest sense is a way of life, encompassing physical, mental and spiritual aspects of a person. It originated in ancient India, and has associations with Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. The physical component of yoga has gained popularity in the West due the relative gentleness of the exercise and the resulting benefits of the same. The postures in yoga, combined with deep breathing and stretches help relieve mental and physical stress , and can also be beneficial in losing weight. However, as with all exercise programs, it is advisable to ask a doctor if you are in the right shape to try the postures and stretches. Commitment is important; the benefits of yoga would only be realized when they are done in a regular way.
Some basic yoga techniques and types include:
1. Controlled, deep breathing
2. Gentle stretches
4. Power Yoga for the more athletically inclined
5. Kundalini yoga, which utilizes poses and chanting along with stretching and meditation
6. Iyengar yoga, which focuses on spinal alignment
It is advisable to do yoga at the very least with video lessons, if not a personal instructor. This is important, especially towards the beginning when your body is unused to the stretches and holding poses. Working with an experienced professional minimizes the risk of injury. Yoga is now taught throughout the country in gym classes and community centers.
Yoga, in conjunction with a balanced diet and the ability to prioritize personal and professional responsibilities, can help one beat stress and emerge as a positive, well rounded and healthy individual.
