I’ve always loved yoga but it wasn’t until a few months back were I rediscovered it. Due to my hectic work schedule I knew that I would need an outlet soon where I can find peace (body and soul). If you don’t know, yoga is a mind-body practice. It brings together physical and mental disciplines that help me achieve peacefulness of body and mind. Practicing it helps me relax and manage my stress.
Yoga has many styles, forms and intensities. Some are more intense while others are slower pace and easier movements. Hatha yoga, in particular, is a great choice for stress management and it’s also one of the most common styles. In today’s post I am practicing Hatha yoga. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
Hatha yoga pretty much consists of three (3) core components such as:
- Poses. Yoga poses, also called postures, are a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility. Poses range from lying on the floor while completely relaxed to difficult postures that may have you stretching your physical limits.
- Breathing. Controlling your breathing is an important part of yoga. Yoga teaches that controlling your breathing can help you control your body and quiet your mind.
- Meditation or relaxation. In yoga, you may incorporate meditation or relaxation. Meditation may help you learn to be more mindful and aware of the present moment without judgment.
When do I work out?
I wake up early (around 5:45AM) to do yoga for at least 45min each day. It’s sets the mood for my day ahead + it helps me stay focus throughout the day. This is the only workout that truly enhances my mood and my overall sense off well-being. I’m a positive person to begin with but yoga brings it out even more. I feel more zen and energized.

I workout in general, and I feel like that alone whether it is yoga, walking, ext. It all relieves stress and it is something that is healthy for your mind, body, and soul overall. I love this post. I think yoga is so nice as well it helps with pains you might have and it makes you feel stronger 🙂 http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2019/05/rings-that-make-fashion-statement.html
Vanessa , such perfect Yoga poses. you seem to have mastered all the asanas of Yoga. Yoga is infact so distressing and has a calming effect. It really makes you physically, emotionally and spiritually strong.
I haven’t practiced yoga before, but I only heard good things about it. Yoga has such a calming effect! I should really start practicing it.

Thank you for sharing. .
Hi V! It’s been a while, I hope you’re well! I’ve never been a yoga person to be honest, I’m more a gym girl. A lot of my friends practise yoga in order to relieve stress 🙂 Glad to hear yoga helps you to stay focused and energized as well!
I’ve never really tried yoga but all I keep hearing is that it has a lot of benefits. Glad you shared this.
Really helpful post. Thank you for share with us.

You wake up so early, damn! I wake up just before 6 am as well, but I start work at 7 am so have no time to practice before work. I never tried yoga, always meant to but somehow classes are always either very early (when I’m at work), or very late (when I’m already being lazy). I enrolled to pilates though and I’ve been loving it since.
Thanks for sharing! I love working out and staying in shape. De-stressing is very important especially as life can be so chaotic.
It’s really cool! I’ve been wanting to start going to yoga
Agree. Yoga practice has realistic solutions for stressed-out individuals. Young people need to take time out for non-competitive and wholesome activities, such as Yoga.
Simple yoga techniques take minutes to do and can be incorporated into your exercise routine. You can also do them whenever stress takes its toll to regain your balance.
Controlled breathing in different styles has a detectable, and welcomed effect, on the psyche and the body.
For me personally, nothing can beat Yoga! Thank you so much for sharing this post 🙂 <3
