Yoga for Stress Relief: Yin and Yang is a class for everyone. Just in time for the holiday season to help us let go of stress. This can be a difficult time of year for many. This class starts with a "Yang" practice which heats up the body. Yang is associated with heat and light. It is male-dominated energy according to Chinese philosophy. Much of our world seems to be Yang dominant. Where I live in Southern California, there is so much Yang energy. A lot of competition to succeed…to "keep up with the Joneses" and to work, work, work. This creates stress for many. Our bodies spend way too much time in the "fight or flight" mode which wreaks havoc on our physical and emotional systems. Yin is the feminine passive energy associated with cold and darkness. It is a calming energy that allows us to relax and renew ourselves. Yin is as important as Yang and we need both in order to find balance in our lives and in our bodies and minds.
I highly recommend reading "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. It's a wonderful "hero's journey" that describes the importance of following your heart's desire, or dream, or "Personal Legend." It's so important to follow your heart to find your "Dharma" or what you were meant to do with your life. By following this, we all add love to the world.

WELCOME to Fightmaster Yoga, I'm Lesley Fightmaster (yes…that's really my last name). Before yoga, my head would never shut up! I felt anxious and uncomfortable. I stressed about the future and regretted the past. I was wound so tightly, took myself way too seriously and carried the weight of the world on my shoulders. I hardly ever laughed. Morning yoga taught me to breathe, to connect and to find space. My intention for this fitness channel is to help you quiet your mind and get comfortable in your own skin. Let go of the past and the future and get present on your mat. If you're having a rough day, find some relief here. If you're beating yourself up, roll out your mat, push play and know that everything's going to be alright. We can all take ourselves a little too seriously. My free yoga videos will help you to laugh more and stress less. The Fightmaster Yoga community will love you SO MUCH that you won't have any choice but to love yourself. Subscribe now and join the fun!
