Stressed Out? Yoga Day Offers Antidote
While Connecting with Community
Some Americans are all stressed out. Yoga Day Saturday, April 27 & Sunday 28, 2013 is the perfect prescription to help us learn to relax. This starts at 10 am. Just one class, lecture or presentation can help stop the harmful effects of stress, providing a heightened sense of well-being and a preview of additional benefits including improved breathing, strength and flexibility. The Mind Body Spirit Center is inviting Yoga Teachers, studios, schools and Natural Healthcare Practitioners in nearby areas to offer a Yoga class of their specialty for those new to yoga and those who practice regularly but would like to try a different style. Ms. Leota Young, a Representative of Harbor House will be our esteemed guest giving a 15-20 minute talk about Harbor House’s services.
"The event is a fundraiser for Harbor House of Central Florida, a State-certified domestic abuse center located in Orange County", so in addition, any aspiring yogi can experience Karma yoga, the act of selfless giving. The Doolin Healing Sanctuary which has been assisting our community in many areas of healing (mind, body and spirit) since 1989 has since merged and Co-founded The Mind Body Spirit Center with the Inez Bracy International, LLC. The Yoga Day workshop is open to all ages, fitness levels and all levels of mobility.
There’s no denying that stress has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S. In fact, according to the American Psychological Association, 75 to 90% of doctor visits are for stress related ailments and complaints. Stress is also linked to the six leading causes of death – heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. “Stress has even been declared a hazard of the workplace by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration,” said Yoga Alliance (YA) chair Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, PhD., MBA, RYT, CHHC. “Yoga provides an invaluable mind/body connection that is key to helping us better manage stress and improve our health.”
Yoga reduces stress and improves strength, flexibility, coordination, circulation and posture. Practicing Yoga actually reduces levels of cortisol, often called the “stress hormone.” And, best of all, there’s no waiting for the relaxation benefits to begin. A study conducted by Thomas Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and the Yoga Research Society demonstrated that cortisol levels drop significantly beginning with the very first Yoga class.
Invited Presenters, studio owners, Yoga teachers, fitness practitioners and the community involved with natural healthcare will have a time slot in which to present. We invite participants and spectators and the $5 donation entitles each one to attend as many styles of fitness or healthful information as they choose that day. Each student, participant, teacher, owner will be asked to donate $5 that will be given to Harbor House (services for Abused Women) 100%.
