If you're under a lot of stress the brain sends commands to the body to tense up the muscles and this results in muscular tension. Taking twenty minutes a day to bring awareness to the body is a relaxation technique that relieves muscle tension. Depending on the type of stress you're experiencing different relaxation techniques work better than others. This video is especially for muscular tension. (23 minutes)

Thank you so much, Barb. My session was very thought provoking and I was able to address things I had no idea I was even hanging on to. I feel like I'm starting to feel that freedom that we talked about. I don't think I would have been able to come to these realizations without you and I truly thank you with all my heart and being. I will definitely be seeing you again! Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift with me.
I was new to yoga when Barb suggested I try a series of classes. I had some things going on in my life and I knew I needed to make a change so I decided why not. Not only did I enjoy going through the process but I learned so much about the practice of yoga and what it has to offer besides the poses. The most amazing part was that I had some breakthroughs in my own life. I don't know if I would have been able to make these huge lifetime changes without the yoga classes and meditation. Thank you so much, Barb, I have a new life!
