So tell me, who taught you “how to relax”? Clock is ticking…. Ok time’s up. Yea, I know, no one did. For most of us, the first time we learn practical techniques on how to de-stress is in a yoga class. And just like anything else stress is a learned behavior. The great news is that we can unlearn negative habits—like stress—and replace them with healthy habits. Going to Yoga class gives us the opportunity and help we need to practice relieving tension to break the chronic stress cycle.
