They are all around you. If you really look, you will spot them every time you are in public. Next time you are on a subway, at the mall, or even stuck in traffic; take a look at the faces of the people around; you will see the strained signs of stress. The stress is most evident on a morning commute as everyone is rushing around to get their work days started on time. Harried phone calls; animated conversations, people in business suits running to beat the closing subway door; it can be overwhelming. It is no wonder that stress is taking a toll on us. Nearly 3.7 million Canadian workers say that they are highly stressed in the workplace; another 6.3 million report feeling some stress. That means nearly a third of all Canadians feel some level of stress every day.[1] High levels of stress can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, and other health issues as well as contribute to smoking, over-consumption of alcohol, and over-eating.[2] Outside forces act as a trigger, but stress still comes from within. The good news? While we can’t always control external events, we do have some say in how we react to them. The line of equanimity is within our grasp if we just reach out. How can we reach that peace of mind in a chaotic world? Through yoga!

The benefits of yoga will carry with you for far longer than the moment. The methods you learn in a yoga class can help you maintain a peaceful mind all throughout the day. Here are a few ways that yoga will help you reach equanimity:

Shutting Out the Noise

So much is going on around you all the time; it can be difficult to focus on your inner thoughts. Yoga gives you that quiet moment where you can focus your energy on what is happening within.

Reflection

With the outer noise quieted (at least temporarily), yoga will allow you reflect on things without interruption. It provides you that safe space when you can really confront things that may be troubling you and come to a solution.

One with the Body

Stretches and poses will give you a deeper connection to your own body and learn where stress is most impacting you. This knowledge will show you where you need to start your stress relief.

Breathing Techniques

Breathing is an important part of yoga practice. Proper techniques will help ease the mind into a calm state and reduce stress as you slow down the thinking process.

Touches Your Everyday Life

The fundamentals of yoga do not need to end once you leave the studio. Once you learn the basics, you can train your mind to access that line of equanimity when sitting on the subway, standing in line, or even taking a few minutes while sitting down at work. A peaceful mind is within your reach wherever you may be.

A steady mind impacts our decisions or choices in how we perceive and interpret the world around us, choosing to take negligible matters less personally, letting them affect us less deeply, so we can live a happy life.

The first step to achieving your line of equanimity is by reaching out to a right yoga mentor. Mind to Body has programs for adults, teens and kids we provide the best yoga instructors in Mississauga along with spacious heated yoga studios. In addition to yoga Mind to Body also offers meditation, Ayurveda, breathing, and other workshops. Contact us today for more information or visit our studios to experience the pleasure of serenity.

I was in search of a yoga teacher training program and stumbled upon Mind to Body....its become my second home ever since. The yoga teacher training program was very detail oriented and definitely prepared for my yoga journey. They covered a lot of topics like anatomy and basics of ayurveda as well. I continue to attend regular yoga classes there now. They offer many various different types of classes..my favs are the restorative and yin classes. The staff is very inviting and friendly and the studio is very very clean and well maintained. Oh yea...can't forget the complimentary delicious detox tea i have every time i attend a class is a bonus!!read more

If I could give Mind to Body more than 5 stars I would! Since starting at this studio 6 months ago, all my aches and pains have been eliminated. That's due to yoga but more so thanks to the personable, caring, passionate and dedicated instructors. It's a blessing to have found a yoga studio where each class by any instructor here is taught with so much passion and bring their own experiences and way of teaching, teaching the right techniques and foundations of poses (grounding feet and hands) alot of others overlook when teaching. They don't ever ever ever make you feel like you have to do a pose they always tell you to follow your body. Love the variety of classes, started with Restorative yoga and now on to hot detox yoga which I didn't ever think I'd do. Mind to body has a great community of employees and members who are always friendly with a huge smile on their faces. It's been so great to connect with other members especially while having the detox tea, yum! Honestly don't know how they keep it so clean with so many members but it's immaculate and shiny. Floors are always swept and mopped constantly. Couldn't have found a more amazing yoga studio, love you guys for all that you do! It's definitely been a life changing process and I'm excited to continue to grow in every way with all of you :).read more
