If you’ve ever been in one of my classes you’ve heard me go on and on about the numerous benefits of relaxation. You are simply the best version of yourself when you are relaxed. Most people think relaxation is sitting on the couch, eating dinner, surfing the web and watching TV – all at the same time. That is not relaxation. That is hyper-tasking. And hyper-tasking is what is causing the mind/body disharmony in the first place. Relaxation, like anything, is a skill – the more you practice, the better you get. And relaxation is vital to your health. A few years ago I had the privilege of having dinner with Arianna Huffington and let me tell you, this woman gets it. She is a wonderful advocate for helping you THRIVE. Below are links to some great articles on her site lauding the various benefits of relaxation. If you are feeling stuck and not really sure how to find relaxation in your busy life feel free to contact me and I will do my best to give you a few tools that might help. ambervoilesyoga@gmail.com
