With a struggling economy, a lack of good jobs, and rising costs of living what is one to do when considering raising your spirits. Let’s be honest, you can’t afford to get sick in this economy. Co-payments for anything are through the roof and employers are just waiting for an excuse to terminate us, but there is a bright light that doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.

Yoga training sessions are a positive outlet for many people these days. With stress coming from life, jobs, and other ailments, yoga has become a great way to deal with life's trials and tribulations.

The asana (yogic posture) practice helps you learn how to release emotions throughout your body. Whether you are holding a certain position for five to eleven minutes or finding your center, it helps to create a state of stillness within your mind and body that helps to relieve your daily tension. Yin Yoga is a great way to develop your asana and bring a calm structure within your life. For the women, it is perfect because there is a constant soreness within the hips. The stretches and poses help to center your body.

When you go to your practice, leave all your worries off the mat and focus on connect to your body. Finding a way to breathe gently through each pose and pass will create a certain level of flexibility within your body. This can be applied to your life. For example, if you are going through a tough issue, you can write it out and help to find the cause. While your Yoga practice does not help you solve your problem, it does give you the positive emotion you need to take steps on how you can conquer this ordeal.

Developing yogic habits also includes a few things such as quality foods and sunlight. A lot of people have low Vitamin D within their system, so it's important to develop good habits such as practicing in the sunlight for a bit. Not only will you become one with yourself and the positive energies surrounding nature but it significantly helps with your health. 

Additionally, eating foods rich in vitamins such as fruits, vegetables, beans, and nuts will greatly increase your energy and the richness of your body. Combining yoga with healthy eating and sunlight will greatly increase your overall quality of life. When you improve your quality of life, that is a feeling that will help to create more lasting positive emotions.

Applying this yogic methodology is much more than a simple once or twice a week yoga class. Yoga will help you build a healthy and positive lifestyle that you can spread onto others.
