Yes. More and more people come to yoga specifically to better manage their stress. The combination of breath, postures and relaxation relaxes the nerves and muscles in depth, which allows to evacuate accumulated stress from the organism. And from the very first lesson, one can already feel a state of physical and mental relaxation which is rarely attained in daily life, even during sleep. With a regular practice, not only the effects of stress are eliminated during the session, but the nervous system becomes more resistant. So the practitioner gradually increases his level of tolerance to stressing agents and manage to stand back and deal with challenging situations with a lot more serenity.
