I teach a slow, subtle yoga for a reason! The body adores it, and in the stressful world in which we’re living, this is just what we need to build resiliency.
Slow Yoga Promotes Neuroplasticity
Slow, mindful yoga helps to change your brain in ways that develop
a greater capacity to self-regulate your nervous system, and increase your feelings of empathy and feeling more connected with yourself and others.
Slow Yoga Reduces Inflammation
Inflammation has been associated with a variety of disease processes for a very long time. These include: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and chronic pain. Slow, mindful yoga turns on the relaxation response which helps to reduce inflammation. This in turn can benefit respiratory and cardiovascular function, mental health, chronic pain, sleep, and foster a greater sense of well-being.
