Why Yoga Feels So Good

Posted Feb 01 2012 1:31pm

When you practice yoga the focus is on breathing fully which results in experiencing deep relaxation, and a feeling of well being. When you hold postures or asanas you will be guided to use the exhale to create space into tight muscles which results in lengthening and stretching of the muscle. In addition, focusing on your breath helps to release thought, and brings the focus back to the present moment, which results in feeling calm and joy. As your yoga practice nears the closing you will be guided with relaxing meditation and or healing touch while you rest on your back. This portion of yoga is known as savasana and it is restorative in nature. Typically yoga closes in a comfortable seated position where you’ll be guided to focus on the gratitude and abundance in your life. Because practicing yoga regularly feels so good, the only challenge will be coming back to reality when your yoga session comes to a close. ~Sara Holliday MFT, CPT, HHP
