Yoga for Stress: Doctor-Designer Yoga Remedies for Stress Relief with Dr. Baxter Bell.
This unique, medically-informed approach guides you through practices for immediate relief and teaches you to build "stress hardiness": a healthier long-term response to life's pressures.
In two complementary practices you'll learn to recognize and modify your body's fight or flight response to stress, and the benefits of yoga in addressing the root causes of stress-related problems like muscular tension, headaches, insomnia, depression, and panic attacks. Baxter Bell, MD, brings decades of medical expertise to the practice of yoga, along with a deep, personal understanding of how it can neutralize stress's impact on body and mind. Throughout, he and two assistants make yoga accessible and enjoyable for beginners and more advanced practitioners by demonstrating the use of props and pose modifications.
Whether you're a beginner looking to decompress or are familiar with the practice of yoga, Yoga for Stress will change your relationship to stress and help you maintain a healthier balance, on and off the mat.
