Yoga & Eczema

Have you ever thought of trying yoga to help control your eczema or psoriasis?

Stress is a common trigger of eczema and psoriasis, and is often the cause of a flare up. Yoga will help to reduce your stress levels and therefore help to reduce the number of flare ups you experience.

Some people are generally stressed. They worry about everything and find it hard to relax. Learning a method of relaxation is a great way of coping and it will help you to approach your condition and manage it in a more positive manner.

Even for people who tend not to worry as much Yoga is a wonderful form of exercise and it will help to rid your body of stress that you may not have been aware existed.

Yoga is a system of gentle movements that help to bring your body and mind into harmony through a range of postures (called asanas). It involves breathing techniques which encourage relaxation and concentration. It also encourages the body to expel toxins.

Yoga is useful for developing strength and flexibility, releasing tension and for meditation.
