Dissolve tension. Relax muscles. Reset your mood.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Stress relief and flexibility programs are natural compliments in yoga. When you release mental pressure, you simultaneously relieve tightness in your muscles and joints. Similarly, when you focus on reducing stiffness in the body, you automatically release tension held in the mind.

The yoga DVD by yoga expert and psychologist Ashley Turner, entitled Element: Yoga for Stress Relief and Flexibility is meant to reduce those signs of aging, improve the quality of your sleep and prevent injury, aches and pains.

The yoga DVD features two rejuvenating yoga programs, filmed in a tranquil garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, can help undo the physical and mental effects of tension.

The Stress Relief sequence uses the breath, longer holds, and forward bends to encourage the body's relaxation response. This calming sequence will dissolve anxiety, improve quality of sleep, reveal clarity of thought, and activate the anti-aging benefits that restorative yoga provides.

The Flexibility sequence uses simple but effective flowing vinyasas to enhance agility, alleviate pain, cultivate a greater free range of movement, and reduce risk of future injury.

EXERCISE

Element: Yoga for Stress Relief and Flexibility features two rejuvenating programs that work in harmony address the physical and mental effects of tension.

The Flexibility practice uses the invigorating Vinyassa system that combines breath with simple flowing movements to stimulate circulation, remove lactic acid build-up and increase flexibility in the larger muscles groups of the shoulders, hips, hamstrings and back. Over time this program will enhance your agility, improve range of motion and help you avoid future injury.

The Stress Relief practice includes deep, conscious breathing and the opportunity to hold the gentle stretches. There are lots of forward bends too, which according to Turner, “will work to encourage the body’s relaxation response; lowering levels of adrenaline and cortisol in the body. It’s a way of turning back the clock.”

A practice yoga mat is recommended to perform the two routines in Element: Yoga for Stress Relief and Flexibility.

Please note that all the instructor, Ashley turn, has a Master's in Psychology and is a psychotherapist, she is NOT a psychologist. There are specific licensure requirements for use of this term, and this review is in error.
