Fans of ’80’s may remember Frankie urging us to relax and Chillasana yoga agrees however our lyrics differ a bit: “Relax, just do it. When you want to get to it. Relax, just do it. When you want to calm…” If you need to relax, make yourself comfortable and press play.
Mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, chronic stress) generate more than $104 billion in direct costs in addition to a rise in disability claims and lost productivity. Roughly 217 million days of work are lost annually due to productivity decline related to mental health conditions. Studies conducted in the corporate environment have shown that implementing mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) & yoga programs help to: reduce perceived stress, increase productivity, reduce presentee-ism & absenteeism, improve emotional & mental health, reduce disability claims, improve sleep quality, lower blood pressure and reduce heart rate variability.
Is what I said after my 1st yoga experience. After my 2nd, my opinion about yoga did not improve and perhaps got worse. The fairy tale “Goldilocks and the 3 Bears”, a story of a curious girl who broke into a house and tried 3 bowls of porridge, sat on 3 chairs and laid in 3 beds before she found what was just right for her. This story is an analogy for my journey to discover yoga.
I’m so not a yoga person, but Chillasana Yoga (Keren) is wonderful at creating sessions personalized to your needs and goals. Because of her, yoga has become enjoyable for me. Her instructions and guidance are easy to understand and adjusted for both your physical and emotional needs. You leave feeling more balanced and wanting to come back for more! ~Sharon
I had a one-on-one session with Keren a few weeks ago and it was great! I’ve taken yoga with many different teachers over the years and she is definitely one of the best. She is encouraging yet challenges you appropriately. She is very knowledgeable and can tackle any level of student that comes to her. I’m definitely looking forward to another session with her soon. ~Karen
