Impact of Ashtanga yoga on physical and mental health
AUTHOR(S): Ranjana Sood
In our daily lives we are over stimulated. Work obligations, family responsibilities and noise from outside overwhelm our senses constantly. A dedicated practice of yoga brings one back to oneself on a daily basis keeping one’s centered. One’s inner world is replenished and nourished so there is more of one to go around. Breath awareness is front and center in this practice. Through constant focus on the breath one recognizes long established breathing patterns and correlative behavioral patterns. This deeper awareness allows one’s to breathe more effectively and alter patterns of unwanted behavior. Greater awareness of the breath extends to all facets of one’s life. Ultimately it leads to enlightenment.
