Most think yoga is about flexibility and getting in a good workout, but there is so much more yoga has to offer. Research shows yoga can assist in decreasing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Incorporating a regular yoga practice can compliment the lifelong process of trauma healing. Yoga is integral in helping to calm the body and center the mind.
Yes, yoga is good for strengthening and conditioning muscles, but it can also teach one how to move through hard things. It can help on in connecting to the physical body, as well as, supplement mindfulness skills such as staying present in the current moment without attachment to racing thoughts.
Yoga has even been proven to help the brain work better. The brain is like any other muscles in the body, and yoga has shown to enhance the brain structure resulting in improved cognitive skills and executive functioning. Yoga can even benefit digestion and organ detox.
