Yoga. Meditation, Science & Well-Being
Yoga is increasingly being provided as an adjunct to treatment for various physical and psychological issues. Yoga practices are adaptable to any body and any lifestyle. If you can breathe, you can practice Yoga.
The teachings and practices of Yoga are simple, practical and adaptable tools that emphasize mindfulness, mind body awareness and increase stress resilience. This is why it is so amenable as an adjunctive treatment and why a private session or two can be so helpful in establishing a Yoga practice.
It's important to incorporate Yoga practices into daily life. Modern science supports the claims of the ancient Yoga teachings; when we practice a skill, with consistency, over a long period of time, we create changes in the brain and body. This is when the benefits become embodied and integrated.
The practice of meditation, which is central to Yoga, has been studied extensively and the benefits listed include: improved emotion regulation, decreased stress and anxiety, increased mood and social connection, increased compassion and increased creativity and problem solving.
