Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 18, 2014

Stress has been determined to be the #1 cause of all illness and disease. During these turbulent times the stress level is at an all time high. At the same time many people realize that simply trying to "medicate" the stress away is not only ineffective long term but has serious side affects. There is an alternative. Working in alliance with the mind, body and breath, one can learn to not only effectively reduce or eliminate stress, one can actually achieve a deep sense of peace and well being that they may have not even known was possible. The course is based on the time tested practice of yogic principles that have proved to be highly effective and easy to learn regardless of a persons experience in yoga. This special course in the Yoga Farm invites students to experience the joy of a life free from unnecessary stress and anxiety.
