“How can Yoga reduce stress?”

A home-based Yoga practice is a key part of my stress relief routine.

A lot of people think that I just train with my clients most of the day, and spend any extra time coming up with ideas for new workouts.

While I do both of these things regularly, and frankly they are my favorite part of the job!… believe it or not, I spend the large majority of my time these days in other activities, such as:

  • Motivating, delegating to staff
  • Figuring out ways to get our clients the best possible results
  • Creating content for our blog, email newsletter, and social media channels
  • Generating interest from new clients in a variety of ways
  • Day-to-day operations

Getting this all running smoothly, generating enough profit at the end of the month to be able to support my family, all in the middle of an on-going pandemic, can be quite stressful!!

This is why I need a regular routine that can help. And I’m willing to bet that you deal with some stresses, and that you could use some help too.

Yoga is fantastic for this because it can benefit three aspects of ourselves that are often affected by stress: our body, mind, and breathing. If it’s not part of your stress relief routine, I highly recommend it! Sign up for my upcoming “Sport Yoga” series, and you’ll see what I mean:

-> Sport Yoga with Forest – starts Thursday, Sept 9th

We’ll meet once per week for a 45-minute home-based practice (over Zoom), and I will help you reduce stress, plus do something positive for your health and fitness, all at the same time.

Give yourself a little bit of time each day for your Yoga practice, and after a couple of weeks, you will start noticing subtle changes. Keep going, Yoga will become part of your regular routine, and it can help you manage life’s stresses well into the future!
