The effectiveness of yoga and meditation practices are documented in multiple studies and clinical trials. This comprehensive, balanced system of holistic healing can help the primitive brain to come off red alert and return to normal.
We all want to feel happy, loved, secure and safe. Our brains have evolved to keep us safe. When our safety is threatened, we are hardwired to work to restore it. Our body and brain knows how to heal. Our job is to create the conditions for healing. It’s normal to feel frustrated, impatient and wanting to return to normal. The latest research is showing we are stronger after coming through traumatic events.
The first principle of yoga is ahimsa, or non-harming. Working with kindness and compassion for ourselves is the fastest route to deep healing and mental resilience.
