The Science of Yoga

According to medical scientists, Yoga therapy is successful because of the balance created in the nervous and endocrine systems which directly influences all other systems and organs of the body. Yoga acts as both a curative and preventative therapy.

Through the practice of Yoga we connect our emotional, mental and physical levels, which leads to a more relaxed state of living and harmony in our relationships. Regular practice can also help diverse ailments such as Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Digestive disorders, Arthritis, Arteriosclerosis, Chronic fatigue, Asthma & Varicose veins.

Clear your mind of clutter – focus your attention on your breath

Take time to rest your attention on your breath instead of getting wrapped up in the ongoing drama of your thoughts. Once your thoughts settle, your mind is free from all the clutter that keep you busy and restless and unable to make good decisions.

Start slowly fitting in 5 minutes here and there, try it next time you are standing in a queue, washing up or cooking the dinner. Just shift your attention away from your thoughts and on to your breath.

Many problems we face in life are as a result of our thinking. Whilst our lives are taking place in this moment – our minds are drawn to re-thinking what has already happened and looking ahead to what might happen.

The Buddha said: ‘We suffer in life because we are trapped in our minds’

‘If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place’ – Lao-tzu
