When you feel better in your skin, you feel better in your mind.
Improved strength and flexibility will improve posture, reduce aches and pains, and relieve joint pain. According to a recent publication by the American Osteopathic Association, the regular practice of yoga not only improves physical health, but it greatly improves mental health as well.
As Dr. Natalie Nevins states in the article, “Yoga builds strength, awareness, and harmony in both the body and mind.” She goes on to say, “As an osteopathic physician, much of my practice is on preventive medicine and the body’s ability to heal itself. Yoga is a great tool because it’s based on similar principles.”
When we become more aware of our body and its abilities, we tune in to changes and make adjustments before they become problematic. Learning proper alignment of the spine, neck, and joints improves strength and alleviates stress both physically and mentally.
Strength leads to confidence and confidence leads to reduced stress.
So, if you're new to yoga, or if you’ve ever found yourself interested in understanding why this thousand-year-old practice continues to gain popularity, treat yourself and learn the principles. You will soon find that the work you put in on your mat translates to change well beyond the confines of your practice.
“When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” – Wayne Dyer
