Reduce Stress and Improve Mental Health – Yoga Stretch Therapy activates the parasympathetic nervous system, the body’s rest and digest state, reducing secretion of the stress hormone cortisol. Muscles tend to tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress, stretching allows for the focus on areas of the body where stress tension is held, such as the neck, shoulders, low/upper back and hips. Stretching increases blood and oxygen flow allowing tension in the body to ease, thus creating a calming state while improving mental clarity.
