Relaxing Yoga

People who practice yoga will tell you that it not only makes them fitter it also enriches their life in many other ways. There are many forms of yoga, which one you practice to some extent dictates what you get out of Yoga. Using relaxing Yoga techniques it is possible to counter many of life stresses.

Types of Relaxing Yoga Classes

Some forms of yoga are designed to stimulate your body and to build muscle and flexibility. Whilst other forms of yoga, concentrate more on meditation and building a sense of tranquillity.

You would naturally assume that the second kind is what you need if you want to use yoga to relax. However, in reality which form of relaxing Yoga you choose depends, to some extent, on your personality type.

Stress, like many other things in life, affects different people in different ways. Some people become overexcited when they are under stress so need to be calmed down. However, other people become deflated under stress, so need to be stimulated.

For people who are over agitated or overexcited the more meditative forms of yoga are the most effective. For those that become deflated and despondent under stress, forms of yoga that stimulate the body and move it to action are better for them. For example, power yoga.

Regardless of what kind of personality you have and how you respond to stress it is important that you find a yoga class run by an experienced teacher. Experienced yoga teachers know how to recognise what people need and to provide it in their classes. In some cases, they may even tell you to go to another teacher to learn the form of relaxing Yoga that will work best for you.
