Andrea's way to relieve stress
We all have to deal with stress in our daily lives, jobs, career, etc.
First, we need to want to change that.
We need to have healthy meals, at regular times.
We need to have less necessity for control.
We need to learn that we are not perfect and that it is ok to make mistakes.
We need to learn to be flexible.
We need to learn to breathe.
We need to learn to let it go.
We need to have compassion, from others and towards ourselves.
How do we get that?
Through yoga practice.
Practice yoga and change your life. ♥
How lack of confidence is related to stress?
The reason behind stress or anxiety can be insecurity or lack of confidence in one’s self and that’s why here is my story of building up the feeling of self proud in ones body
My Story of Becoming Self Proud
I AM PROUD OF MY BODY
This is my truth today but it wasn’t always the case.
Being proud of my body has always been a challenge for me and I’ve shared about it often.
At one point, I stopped talking about it because I figured that acknowledging it made it real and maybe if I stopped talking about it, it would show up less.
To an extent, this did work and it definitely helped me get rid of the attachment I felt towards remaining insecure.
But it wasn’t until I started addressing my triggers that I really saw a change in how I viewed myself. I made the conscious decision to change my thought patterns; instead of singling out all my defects, I started praising the things I liked.
And I also started working hard for my body – eating better, exercising more, switching skincare routines.
More importantly, I finally forgave myself for all those years where I chose not to care for my body. It took years and years but I can finally say -honestly- I’M PROUD OF MY BODY
Does yoga help with self-esteem?
Yes, I can also say that yoga really helps in achieving self-esteem because yoga helps to take care of our body and when we take care of someone ( for example our body) then we builds up trust and self-esteem in them😊
I am a self-employed yoga teacher, completed my education from Patanjali International Yoga Foundation, Rishikesh.
I have several awards & achievements like a Silver medal 🥈 in 2nd south Asian yoga sports championship, Silver medal in 1st Mt. Everest international yoga festival (competition), Trophy🏆 in the 5th open National yoga sports competition on 28th December 2018, etc.
I have my yoga academy in Ahmedabad, Gujrat.
How Setu- Bandhasana relieves stress?
According to me, this pose which is also known as Bridge Pose is very effective in relieving stress, anxiety or depression.
Not only this it is also very beneficial to various other body parts like it Strengthens the back muscles, Relieves the tired back instantaneously, Gives a good stretch to the chest, neck, and spine, Helpful in asthma, high blood pressure, etc
The particular steps to perform this posture are:-
- Begin the asana by lying flat on your back.
- Bend your knees and place your feet on the floor.
- Make sure that your ankles and knees are placed in a straight line.
- Let your arms rest beside your body, with your palms facing downwards.
- Inhale, and lift your back off the floor.
- Let your shoulders, feet, and arms to support your weight.
- Hold the posture for at least a minute.
- Breathe normally.
- Exhale and release the pose.

How yoga can help in stress relief by restoring the subtle energy?
For myself, I think yoga helps relieve stress in SO many ways, but one of the main ones, in my opinion, is via the impact it has on the subtle energy system.
We might not see this with the naked eye, but we feel it. When our subtle energy is restored and balanced, we feel calm and peaceful.
If that energy goes out of balance, we feel stressed, which for many of us leads to overeating.
So, definitely we can use yoga to help us maintain a healthy weight and a healthy outlook on life!
My yoga Life
Born and raised in a small Northern Florida town, I discovered yoga when I was 18 after I dislocated my hip in a track and field race.
I was a hurdler, so I had a lot of flexibility coming into yoga, but what I was seeking was a way to use my body to calm my mind, to replace the outlet of running since I couldn’t run as far or train as hard anymore after my injury.
Since then I practiced yoga on and off the mat, but I didn’t truly develop a dedicated practice until after I moved to Los Angeles and found Black Dog Yoga 2 years ago.
Now I’m a Karma Crew member at Blue Moon Yoga, where for the past 7 months, I’ve been able to take my practice to a whole new level, mentally and physically, thanks to the amazing yoga teachers and community there.
My way to relieve Stress

My 3 ways to conquer stress!
Yoga is an incredibly powerful tool to relieve stress and promote relaxation. The best thing? The calming effect of yoga is 100% backed up by science.
So here are three ways yoga reduces stress:
Yoga balances our nervous system.
Our hectic lives throw our bodies into stress response every millisecond. True, a bit of stress can be good for us. But the constant state of alert we’re living in makes us more susceptible to chronic diseases, infections, and even decreases our lifespan. Breathing, which is an essential part of any yoga class, helps our nervous system switch from sympathetic activity (fight or flight response) to parasympathetic activity (rest and digest), preventing chronic stress from building up in the first place.
Yoga affects our hormones.
Numerous studies have shown that yogis display lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and higher levels of happiness hormones such as dopamine after a single yoga session.
Yoga changes your brain.
There’s evidence that the brain of yogis is structurally different than of those who don’t do yoga. Firstly, their gray volume is larger, meaning that yogis retain mind sharpness with age. Secondly, their amygdala (the area responsible for emotions) gets less blood flow and, as a result, is less reactive. In simple words, life is still full of unpleasant surprises, but yogis get less stressed when things go wrong.
Hope you like it 🙂

Relaxation is a central element in Yoga as it is the Body’s way of recharging its cells and help ease physical, emotional and mental tensions!

My Yoga Story!
Hi! I am Laruga Glaser
After extensively researching spiritual philosophy in my teenage years, I discovered yoga in 1996 and was immediately attracted to the mental aspect of the practice. I found Ashtanga Yoga two years later and committed to being a devoted practitioner.
I eventually decided to leave my steady job in the corporate world to teach yoga full-time.
Now, after 20 years of practicing Ashtanga Yoga, I am heading the Mysore program at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden, and teaches workshops and retreats around the globe.
I am certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by The Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.
I am to create a space for students that open, challenge, and inspires them to step into their being and experience their full potential.
Breath: The True component of Astanga
“If you know the art of breathing you have the strength, wisdom, and courage of ten tigers.” (Chinese proverb)
The beauty of the Ashtanga practice is truly the breath. The breath, as it should be, is front and center. It breathes life into the asanas we do.
Making it much more than tying the body into fancy knots. That’s why even if we stumble and struggle in a pose, it still invokes purpose if we are breathing consciously.
The consciousness we bring to each breath smooths the rougher edges we feel. With each mindful inhale and exhale our action becomes more skillful and present.
Our breath has boundless wisdom in it. Never underestimate the power of the breath, because it is one of the most useful tools we have.
Summary: “Master the Breath, Relieve the Stress”
Learn Astanga from me!
I’d always loved fitness, but hadn’t done anything since nursing school and starting work.
Yoga seemed like a good fit, as it could be relaxing, didn’t require any equipment, and I think I saw a few videos of Yogi’s doing handstands which got me excited at that possibility haha.
I just thought the beauty and grace along with the strength were awesome. I’ve pretty much just fallen in love and become obsessed since. Working 12hr shifts on my feet most it, I used to get back pain, and since I’ve started yoga I virtually never get back pain. I just really enjoy the feeling of expressing myself, feeling a huge difference in my strength and flexibility as well
So yeah, I just really love yoga and want everyone to feel as good as I do ☺️❤️

Stress gets to the best of us.
While it can sometimes be a necessary evil to tell us that something is wrong as it causes anxiety and prevents us from enjoying our day, having ways to cope with it can make a big difference!

You need to give time for self-care.
In our day to day busy life, we forget to care about “self-care”.
We wake up every day with a new goal and then we start running to achieve that goal. At the end of the day, we might achieve the same as expected, we became Happy to celebrate that achievement.
On the contrary, if we are failed to achieve that goal, we feel sad, exhausted and that becomes a reason for depression, sadness, anger.
Thus, to overcome this we need to give time for self-care and it can be possible through yoga 🙂
