How Can We Help You?
In the present time, everybody is stressed to some extent and stress affects us mentally and physically.Stress can be the cause behind many diseases like high blood pressure. Because whenever we come under stress, our sympathetic nervous system comes into play. There is emergency call at that time and we need more energy.Thus our heart rate, breath rate increases to fulfill that energy requirement.We have sugar in our blood, it should be broken down into glucose so that we would get the required energy.To break down sugar into glucose, we have a need for oxygen so our breathing rate increases to fulfill that requirement.And this glucose should be circulated at a rapid rate, our heart starts beating faster.Now think about the situation, if you remain under stress for the whole year, that means every time your rate is high which results in high blood pressure and in turn higher chances of getting heart diseases.
Here yoga comes into play which gives you physical and mental benefits.We have prepared this 200 hours yoga teacher training course in a way that you would enjoy all the different sessions.By practicing pranayama and meditation, we can relax our mind. In meditation, we are separated from the outer world and there is less communication between the neurons so alpha waves become dominant and we feel relaxed.Thus we get physical and mental benefits.If our mind is relaxed, we would have a clear thinking and our decision making improves.Meditation also increases our understanding level.
In the present time, most of the people don't know, what is their goal of life? what do they want to become? how to achieve their goal, they don't know so they wander.Sometimes they do one thing, but don't get success.They start doing another thing in a hope that, they would get success, but receive failure this time again.
We tell you, how to remain positive every time when you face problems and stick to your goal so that one day, definitely you will achieve whatever you wanted to do in the past. We will tell you, how to get positive from a difficult phase of life.It is just your approach, how to take a situation.You have the ability to achieve your goal, we only make you aware about that.
