The 6 Minute Yoga Workout to Reduce Stress

Stress is an inevitable part of life, especially at the end season of summer, when school, work, and Fall routines start up in full swing. Stress levels can reach unprecedented highs. Having a healthy stress response is a good thing: it helps has thrive. Keeps us on our toes. However, when the stress hormone cortisol is too high for too long, that's when you see problems. 

  • Poor sleep
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Poor focus
  • Poor memory
  • Appetite loss or gain

These are just some of the more common short-term side-effects of stress. In the long-haul, too much stress has been linked to an increased risk of insomnia, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity and mental illness.

No one is going to present you with a chilled out, balanced lifestyle. It's up to you to create one. This doesn't mean you have to trek to the top of a mountain and sit in silence for a week! It simply means that you have to make time to de-stress and nurture mental health. 

You can do this in as little as 6 minutes. Our 6 Minute De-Stress Workout is a gentle and rewarding yoga session that will help boost your mood and help you focus on the true meaning of life: being calm, productive, and happy.

So, don't get stressed out. Stretch out!

This workout focuses on building awareness and strengthens your core. It makes sense: your core is the foundation of any yoga practice, and where we can begin to learn to develop soothing, deep breathing techniques that can help us unwind.
