Use Yoga to Relieve Stress

LighterLifeYoga is a mind-body practice that combines poses with controlled breathing and meditation and relaxation. Practising Yoga has a realm of health benefits – including reducing stress and lowering blood pressure.

At LighterLife #WeGetIt, which is why we have teamed up with live online yoga studio Yogaia, to offer LighterLife Perks members a free 30-day trial. Yogaia brings you access a host of stress relieving techniques used in yoga, pilates, core and more from the comfort of your own home. Best of all you can get the hang of the moves as you can use your laptop/ipad/iphone camera to receive live feedback from the instructor in the studio. You also don’t need the worry about being tied down to timetables either, as Yogaia fits around you. Choose to either attend ‘live’ class via your own web cam or access hundreds of hours of pre-recorded classes at a time to suit.
