Relieve Stress through Yoga

Do you ever feel stressed? Do you ever wish  you could get a good workout throughout the semester? A great way to do that is by taking yoga right here at CCBC. I have always thought of myself as unathletic, but since taking yoga at CCBC, I have learned that I am much stronger than I thought I was. Yoga doesn’t just give a good workout though! It teaches you about meditating, which can help you alleviate stress caused by school or even different factors of everyday life. Also, you learn about the history behind yoga and even healthy eating habits.

My personal experience of yoga has been very beneficial. I signed up to take it on Monday afternoons so I can start my week off on the right foot and it really helps! I take what I learn in class on Monday and from previous classes and I practice it throughout the week. Also, I incorporate meditation into my at-home yoga routines, which helps me to control my stress during the school week.

Taking yoga here at CCBC has allowed me to get into shape and find a positive outlet for my stress that builds up throughout the semester. Everything that stresses me out in my classes, I take with me to yoga and I release it in my poses. I leave class feeling as if the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. My advice to you is, if you ever feel stressed and want a great workout, think about taking yoga when class registration starts. It may really help you throughout your semester. It has helped me.
