Many of the health and psychological issues encountered in our modern societies are due to an accumulation of nervous tensions that prevent the various body systems and the mind to function properly and in an harmonious manner. Yogic relaxation offers a very efficient way to deeply relax the entire organism and the nervous system.
Through a process of conscious relaxation associated with a deep and rhythmical abdominal breathing, the practitioner is able to gradually relax each part of the body and to eliminate his physical, emotional and mental tensions. A huge amount of energy is freed and made available again.
During a yoga class, each posture is usually followed by a short relaxation to allow the body to relax and release any fatigue or tension at a nervous and muscular level. It also serves to train the mind to observe the effects of the postures through the body sensations.
At the end of the class, a longer relaxation, based on auto-suggestion and the observation of sensations, allows to gain access to an even deeper level of relaxation, leaving the practitioner in an advanced state of physical and mental well-being, which will last several hours after the class.
