Cortisol and adrenaline are chemicals necessary for heightened responses to fight or flight situations. Our adrenal glands help to secrete these chemicals. If these chemicals are produced more than what is necessary, they can become toxic for the body and cause physical and emotional complications such as high blood pressure and major depression. When we are stressed, these chemicals are released. Yogacan help reduce stress and give the body a state of relaxation which helps to put your adrenal glands in check.
