Yes. Yoga has a very soothing effect on the nervous system, which gradually leads to a more serene relationship with one’s emotions. Very simple exercises such as the abdominal breathing and the relaxation pose allow to relax the organism, especially the solar plexus where the emotions are based. During a full yoga session, with breathing exercises, postures and relaxation, the nervous system, muscles and organs are systematically stimulated and relaxed right after. This succession of contraction and relaxation progressively trains the nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) to react in a more detached way when facing a challenging situation. With a regular practice (at least twice a week), body, emotions and mind are brought back to a state of healthy equilibrium in which the nerves become much more resistant to stress, permitting to face daily trials with inner strength and serenity.
