Soul Tips - The Power of Yoga
Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. The ancient practice of yoga is amazing and transformative as it uses a combination of postures, rhythmic breathing, and mindfulness. Yoga establishes a mind-body-spirit connection and is highly beneficial to our physical and mental well-being. Yoga is independent from religion. It is rather a philosophy of creating a peaceful internal environment that promotes health and wellbeing.
Yoga is comprised of slow and gentle movements as well as stretching and mindful breathing. The practice of yoga is highly effective for people who are otherwise restricted in their activities because of the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment. Yoga aids in calming your mind and creating a connection between your breath, your mind and your body. It helps you focus and really get in touch with yourself. Fatigue, sleeplessness, and pain can significantly decrease your quality of life when journeying through cancer. Yoga has the power to help deal with the symptoms associated with cancer, while conventional medical practices such as surgery and chemotherapy are used to treat the cancer itself. Studies reveal that practicing yoga may reduce anxiety caused by cancer because it creates a direct connection between your mind, body and soul. Yoga lowers cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is a hormone that the body releases during times of stress and, if not managed properly, creates a domino-effect of health issues.
When practicing yoga, you concentrate on your breath more and find yourself in a state of complete awareness in terms of your body. It also helps establish a profound sense of peace and stress relief. When you release your tension, energy can flow more freely in your body and provide an experience of well-being and strength—a balance of body, mind, and spirit.
