“I’m not thin enough…”
“I’m not young enough…”
“I’m not flexible enough…”
“I don’t have the discipline…”
“I don’t have enough time…”

Did you know that yoga and meditation – when done right – gives you gets more than just a fit and flexible body?
Yoga and meditation balances the four dimensions that makeup who you are:
When doing yoga and meditation, you connect to your body’s autonomic nervous system
a ‘control panel’ that regulates many of your automatic functions like your breathing, digestion, and heartbeat.
This autonomic nervous system is further divided into two sub-groups:
The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS):
Associated with your fight-or-flight response, which is triggered through potentially harmful situations like extreme stress, or sudden loud noises.
The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS):
Also known as the rest and digest system, it conserves energy by slowing your heart rate, regulating digestion, and managing intestinal and gland activity.
The SNS and PNS are connected to each other like a see-saw: when one goes up, the other goes down.
Unfortunately, since modern life assaults you with endless stress and jarring stimuli, your mind and body spend a lot of time in a state of imbalance – leaving you struggling to relax, recharge, and focus in your daily life.
Studies show that yoga and meditation returns this balance to you by activating both your SNS and PNS at different points of your workout. This brings you back to a state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance, both on and off the mat.
In short, yoga and meditation has a profound effect on your body’s inner workings – it influences how you feel, think, and show up in the world.
