Yoga can be considered technology for getting back in touch with our true essence and ourselves.  It  is a way of remembering the health and wholeness that is our natural state of being.   Yoga, when broken down to its most simple form, is breathing and feeling.  Through this breathing and feeling we  learn to control our reactions to events and people.  It is not the events and people in our lives that give us stress but the way we react to them.   What makes yoga unique in terms of stress reduction is its multifaceted approach.   By working at the physical and psychological levels concurrently, yoga reduces stress on both these levels.
