What is Yoga?
Yoga is a philosophy system with its roots in India. Yoga utilizes breath, asana, meditation, and scripture study to bring balance and harmony to the mind and body. Yoga is the science of how to attain peace of mind. Studies have shown that the practice of yoga help reduces blood pressure, stress, sleep disorders, anxiety, overwhelm, anger, and depression just to name a few.
Yoga is Ayurveda's sister science. Together they make a complete system of healing. Yoga and Ayurveda complete each other <3
In Ayurveda, we use yoga including breath, meditation, physical movement, and spiritual study as one of our many healing modalities. We use yoga to bring about self-awareness, self-compassion and love, and stress reduction. "The journey to create a calm and peaceful mind matches the journey to create perfect health." The practice of yoga helps calm the mind, and restore the body to healing mode. There are many different practices of yoga some being best for some and others being best for others. Like Ayurveda, Yoga is personal and individualized. One style of yoga doesn't fit all. One type of yoga practice might be great and medicinal for one individual, but poisonous for another. Ask your practitioner for direction and guidance towards the best styles of yoga per your constitution and imbalances present at the moment.
