Yoga for Stress Relief: It’s Time to Relax

Let’s face it, the world is a stressful place.

You’ve got bills brimming from your mailbox and inbox, laundry overflowing from your hamper, garbage cans that always seem full, avalanches of emails and text messages, pings and business meetings, carpools and doctor appointments. Oh, and how could we forget: social media overload?

You’ve got a stiff neck and a few too many knots in your back. You’re no stranger to untimely headaches. And when you spend time with friends and family, you’re distracted and plagued by a nagging underlying anxiety. If you’re honest, life feels like something you have to survive.

Burnout is real. But feeling frazzled is a natural response. Only a robot wouldn’t get overwhelmed by the modern world’s daily demands!

And every day it starts...All. Over. Again.

But there is hope: Kamena Yoga for Stress Relief.

Kamena Yoga for Stress Relief

Hi, I’m Lynn McGowan, creator of Kamena Yoga. I help busy women and men to relax and lead healthier, more connected and fulfilling lives by teaching them yoga for stress relief, both in-person and online.

Over my 30 years of studying, practicing, and teaching yoga, I can tell you yoga isn’t solely about twisting yourself into bendy poses or building physical strength. Yoga is bigger than that.

Yoga is about leveraging the doorway of your body to cultivate the qualities of kamena--intentionality, knowing, freedom, and deep love--within yourself so you feel more resilient on every level of your being, no matter what curveballs life throws your way.

Access To Deep Relaxation Is Your Birthright

Can you honestly and confidently say you know how to counteract stress and anxiety as needed?

Do you want to feel more relaxed in your body more often?

I’ll tell you something you may not realize: your body is designed to relax. So is your mind. You just need the right approach and the right commitment.

Kamena Yoga for stress relief helps you to relax and enjoy your experience of being in your body, whatever it is you do--working, eating, resting, or spending time with loved ones. And you better connect with those around you. Your health improves. Your life improves.

This is why yoga for stress and anxiety isn’t just a hobby. It’s essential.

Praise for Master Yoga Instructor Lynn McGowan

Lynn McGowan and Kamena Yoga. It sounds like just a yoga practice. Well it’s not. I went through a terrible break-up. I was devastated. I was angry. I was sad. I didn’t know what to do with myself. Lynn helped me holistically. Lynn helped me with not only with using the practice of yoga to heal, but also a mindful approach to how to deal with those feelings, how to make it through basically. I don’t know what I would have done without her.
