Imagine this scenario: You, a Three Village resident, are stressed out.
Maybe you've just returned from a mid-March Board of Education meeting. Maybe your medical school rotations are just beginning. Maybe you're a commuter frustrated that it takes you half an hour to travel a one-mile stretch of Route 347 between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on any given weekday.
Whatever the cause may be, you need to find a way to stop feeling so stressed out, and the answer could lie on a mat. A yoga mat.
On a web page titled "Stress Management," the Mayo Clinic writes: "Stress and anxiety are everywhere. If they're getting the best of you, you might want to hit the mat and give yoga a try." There isn't just one type of yoga; there are many types that could fit many different personalities.Click here to read all about the various types of yoga from Yoga Journal.
