Between work, raising a family, deal with the traffic and coping with and uncertain economy, stress has become a “normal” part of daily life for most people in Panama. That could explain why so many people around the world (As many as 30 million in the United States alone) have started taking yoga classes or doing yoga at home.
This ancient science, connect mind and body through a series of postures, breathing exercises, and meditation. By stretching and toning the muscle, flexing the spine, and focusing the mind inward, yoga helps reduce stress. That can impact your overall health since stress plays at least some role in many illnesses. Studies show that chronic stress doubles the risk of heart attack, for instance.

It’s quite simple, yoga cures. But you have to practice it regularly, at least three to four times a week, for it to work for you. Once you make it a habit, you’ll notice a desire to practice everyday, even if that means ten minutes of meditation one day, an hour of physical practice the next.
Our therapies works using specifics yoga postures for each condition. A yoga posture work the way massage works, the posture quickly sends the signal for “pressure” to the brain through the nerve fibers, while the signal for “pain” reaches the brain more slowly, the signal for “pressure” closes the receptor gate and shuts out the pain stimulus. Mainly, yoga causes an increase in serotonin, the body’s natural anti-pain chemical.
