For over 10.000 years the humanity practiced yoga, however, in today’s society yoga is considered more of a sport, than a healing action.
One of the most common questions we hear from women is how can we keep the mind, body and spirit healthy, even in the most stressful situations, when problems are keeping us busy and we forget to stand still for a moment and reflect at our lives. By looking at the past, where our ancestors were living well and long, much longer than us today, we can declare that yoga was one of the most practiced ways of healing, developing the spirit and maintaining a certain balance in our mind.
So how can yoga help us heal?
First of all, on a physical level, yoga increases the blood flow and drops the blood pressure, which will decrease the risk of heart attacks and strokes. It also ups our heart rate, meaning when practicing yoga we are automatically relieving depression and the negative emotions.
Moreover, it is proven that it makes you happy. By sitting in the lotus position or any other yoga pose regularly, we significantly increase the level of serotonin in our body, which is the happiness hormone.
It is proven that it helps us relax, sleep better, stimulate us, all benefits that are nurtured and grow balance inside us.
Another benefit is that it helps us focus. By focusing during meditation, we give a chance to our brain to go through all our feelings and emotions, we free our body to heal from negative thoughts and become conscious of what hurts us. This way, we can look at solutions to our problems and start the healing process.
By practicing yoga, you can become a happier woman, you will learn patience through meditation, forgiveness, calmness and ultimately heal from the scars of the past.
