When you think of wellness there are many different things to consider other then exercise and nutrition. When exercising for physical therapy, it is important to remember not to rush through the motions. Breathe slowly and consistently, and have patience. This is where yoga comes in. The practice of yoga reminds you to do all three of these things. It reminds you to breathe through the motions, which allows your muscles to relax more. This will help to release any built up tension in the muscles. This way, your body is not in pain while doing a movement. Physical therapy is not a one-day fix, it takes time and commitment. In yoga, you must hold the motions for a few deep breathes and slowly move into another position. When doing this it increases your balance, flexibility, and patience! Yoga has also been known to relieve stress. Stress could be creating the tension in your muscles in the first place.
