Stress Less with Yoga

 
Stress is a necessary part of life; however, our bodies are not designed for the unrelenting nature of current day, chronic stress. Research is now citing stress as a major factor in high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, osteoporosis, strokes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. Stress impairs the immune system and increases inflammation, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and our resistance to insulin.  In addition, high cortisol levels, which are a result of chronic stress, contribute to overeating, and these extra calories are converted to fat which is stored in the abdomen, the most dangerous place for our heart.
