Yoga has been growing in popularity primarily because people are seeing the benefits of doing yoga on a regular basis. Many medical professionals are even telling patients how yoga may help with a variety of physical and mental issues. Deep relaxation yoga techniques and poses are helping a countless number of people deal with daily life pressures, stress and physical ailments.
What Stress Does to the Body
Stress and pressure of daily life can cause many problems. Stress brings on headaches for some and back pain for others. The muscles of the neck and back tense up and cause pain to radiate and interfere with daily life. Simple tension headaches can escalate into migraines if ways of relaxing are not practiced. When the body is stressed, blood pressure rises. This can lead to heart problems over time. Even asthma attacks and skin problems, such as eczema, can be aggravated by stress.
