Can't catch your breath?
Throughout the day, when we experience stress, our bodies automatically react in ways that prepare us to fight or run. In some cases of extreme danger, this physical response is helpful. However, a prolonged state of such agitation can cause physical damage to every part of the body and can lead to serious medical problems. Join Hastings Yoga in this series where we learn how meditation corrects much of the damage caused by stress, helping the body to repair itself, restoring the body to a calm state, and preventing new damage due to the physical effects of stress. Yoga and meditation instructor Joy Solomon will also describe and demonstrate focused breathing techniques that enhance the mind's ability to stay present and to be fully engaged.
Joy Solomon is director & managing attorney at The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention at The Hebrew Home at Riverdale. She has been practicing yoga since 1999, and became a certified ISHTA yoga instructor in 2010. A long-time student of meditation and breath work, Joy has also spent time on silent retreats.
