Why Yoga Works - Evidence & Reserch

The Science of Yoga and Why It Works

Yoga is an ancient science that has been practiced for over 5000 years. Yoga includes breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures (asanas) and is widely practiced for health and relaxation. 

Yoga is a practical aid, not a religion. Yoga is an ancient science based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace, health and well-being. This is a simple definition.

The practice of yoga makes the body strong and flexible, it also improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, endocrine and hormonal systems. Yoga brings about emotional stability and clarity of mind.

Think of this yoga as being the means and tools to realign and rebalance your vehicle (body) on a regular basis. You take control and you can then become your body's mechanic instead of having to pay someone else to do it (medical professionals). Because your body is finely tuned you will find that your chances for injuries and illnesses will drop as you are in a much more attuned state. 

You don’t want something major to happen to you before you decide to do something about it. That’s reactive behavior and that’s going to set you back big time. Preventative YogaCare is best, but t is NEVER too late to get started.

For most people getting old is a decision they make whether they know it or not. It basically comes down to the saying – Use it or lose it! 

Old age and the associated illnesses that come with it are big business, so therefore people in the western world especially are not encouraged to look after themselves. Everyone is worth more in the health business when they are sick.

You might say that in the western world, people are living longer but the quality of life is far from acceptable. Most older people are taking numerous forms of medication.
