The practice of Yoga is well-demonstrated to reduce the physical effects of stress on the body, and has even been found to lower cortisol levels. This effect is noticeable, and it is one of the primary reasons why people often take up Yoga.
Restorative yoga is a gift to oneself in this highly stimulated and competitive world, helping us recognise the rest our body’s need.
Postures in this class can be supported and held for longer periods, to release muscular tensions and tightness, bring renewal from fatigue and stress and to give a certain physiological effect.
“Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit broken pieces together.”
“Given that my job involves mainly desk-work, I look forward to my yoga sessions each week at Unfold as a chance to stretch and release all the tension that has built up in my body and mind. After yoga I always feel so relaxed and light, and sleep extra well at night”.
