Restorative Yoga to Combat Stress

Stress is a part of life, and there is no escaping its effects.  Even positive life changes, like marriage, babies, new jobs and houses create stress in our lives.  In ancient times, stress was shorter lived.  The "fight or flight" response of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) was designed to help us flee from danger.  When faced with a real or perceived threat, the body produces adrenaline and cortisol to increase heart rate, blood pressure, mental alertness and muscle tension in order to deal with the threat.
