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.


I can't sleep well. Can yoga help me sleep better?

Yes. Yoga has a very positive impact on the quality of the sleep. The combination of breathing exercises, postures and relaxation produce a profound soothing effect on the nervous system and the entire organism. And one can already feel a clear improvement of the sleep experience after only a few sessions. Moreover, yoga postures also have an effect on the endocrine system. For example, inverted postures stimulate and balance the pituitary and pineal glands, which are responsible for the wake and sleep state cycles in the body. So a regular practice (at least twice a week) allows to progressively operate a full re-balancing of the organism and its various functions, including sleep.

I'm very stressed. Can yoga help me to relax and better manage my stress?

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.

I'm often overwhelmed by my emotions. Can yoga help me better manage my emotions?

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.
