Yoga may relieve stress during Tax season

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

The deadline to file your taxes is next Monday and many people find this a daunting task.

Some experts say that simple yoga moves can help relieve some of the stress.

It may seem silly, but they say it is effective and good for your overall health as well.

You can follow some easy steps to help relief the tax stress.

Judi Bar, a registered yoga teacher says, "...you take a big breath in and go like this 'blah' and nobody is going to bother you as you're doing this and it's based on what's called the Lion's Pose. It tightens everything up, it shows you what it feels like to be tight, and then as you let go, it lets off steam."

You can also do some shoulder rolls, back and forth to open your chest and help you breathe deeper.
