Lift your mood and practise Yoga
Our mood changes as the seasons change-Yoga can help.
With the new term just around the corner and Autumn on its way our mood can start to change. Many people experience seasonal effective disorder otherwise known as SAD and this can have a massive impact on people’s general health and well being, in particular their experience at feeling happy or contented.
There is much evidence to show that Yoga really does lift your mood giving the opportunity to experience a brighter side of life. In recent research done in February 2017 and the largest research on the effects of Yoga for depression to date, it was found that although there was not a difference in depression symptoms at the end of the intervention period of 10 weeks, the participants did experience fewer depression symptoms over the entire follow-up period (3/6 months) suggesting that the benefits of yoga may accumulate over time, for example after 3 months. The participants in the study were however clinically depressed and so we can only presume that the benefits would be greater for those experiencing reactive depression or seasonal effective disorder.
The style of Yoga that was used for the research was traditional yoga incorporating Pranayama (breathing techniques) various Asanas (postures) and a guided relaxation. This is the same style of yoga you will find in all of the classes in Worcester with Yoga 7.
Like with anything, results need commitment and dedication and so it really is worth signing up to the Yoga 7 classes in Worcester in order to see the benefits yoga has to offer. Not only will you save money by committing to your attendance but you will have more inclination to attend the class to get that value for money and encounter the many advantages that Yoga will bring to your life.
Einstein’s theory of insanity was ‘to change nothing and expect results’.
We have to make those changes to reap any rewards with regards to our attitudes and general health and well being. Once you make your attendance at a Yoga 7 class every week, after only 3 months such regularity of that behaviour will become the norm especially when the benefits are experienced in your daily life. For example improved sleep, attitude to stress, and an ability to handle some of the unpleasant things that life throws at us from time to time.
So don’t let the change in the seasons be that trigger to start negative thoughts but enrol in a Yoga 7 class today. The new class for beginners yoga will be starting on Tuesday evenings and running throughout the year at St Swithun’s Institute in the City Centre on 5th September and there are place currently still available. Let Yoga be the tool you use to lift your spirits as the nights get darker and the days get shorter.
