There are many benefits to living in New Jersey, but because it is such a populous and expensive state, facing the costs, hustle and bustle of being a resident can take a toll on many people’s inner peace. This may be why New Jersey yoga classes are so popular. Each day, countless individuals adopt the gentle breathing exercises, soothing poses and rejuvenating stretches of the holistic mind-body regimen, which originated in the East many centuries ago. These relaxation techniques can alleviate the symptoms of many conditions, bringing about benefits that range from migraine reduction to shoulder pain relief.
The Princeton Packet reports that one man who struggled with multiple sclerosis (MS) found stress relief in the practice of yoga. In his article, Dan Fernandez wrote that he first experienced the symptoms of his disease at the age of 33, but the condition went undiagnosed for three years. In addition to dealing with health issues, he also faced a floundering business, debt, his father’s death, the birth of his child and rocky personal relationships.
“The fact is, we cannot control when difficult situations arise, but we can control how we respond,” Fernandez wrote in his article. “For me, yoga is one of the greatest coping tools there is. Yoga is about self-acceptance and getting in touch with your body and its innate healing powers.”
He added that the calming program is effective at alleviating the myriad symptoms of MS, which include fatigue, numbness in the limbs and loss of balance. The mind-body system has also been adopted by individuals who struggle with conditions such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
Thanks to the Eastern art, Fernandez improved his well-being and relieved his anxiety about the pain he was experiencing. Now, he has opened a yoga studio to share the positive effects of the regimen wtih others, teaching poses and meditation to those who want to enhance their inner peace.
