Health Benefits Of Yoga Meditation
  • Benefits Of Yoga and Meditation When Practiced
  • Many individuals who practice meditation need to
    ground themselves in their bodies. Yoga
    practitioners are often engrossed with their
    bodies, with the physical and fitness aspect.
    Sometimes when they return home after their Yoga
    class, they can easily feel uptight and
    irritated, again losing their inner balance.
  • Meditation helps to get to the core, to open the
    heart and build up a more stable, balanced and
    more settled personality. Yoga was initially
    intended to help the practice of meditation since
    it makes sitting practice more relaxed and
    balanced. It is said to decontaminate and purify
    the body, calm the nervous system and balance the

  • Both yoga and meditation, when practiced
    together, make a strength between mind and body,
    thus helps in improving overall fitness and
    wellbeing. Many forms of yoga combine meditation
    with the physical sequences, which use controlled
    breathing all through the yoga poses.
  • One can meditate without practicing yoga by
    simply relaxing, clearing the psyche and focusing
    on controlled breathing. By regular practicing of
    both yoga and meditation have a few proven health
    benefits. They are as follows
  • Stress Management
  • Regular yoga practice helps in relieving stress
    from the body. Decreasing the fiery reaction to
    stressors on your body will help lessen your
    opportunity of stress-related conditions such as
    high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
    Similarly, meditation is an effective way to
    reduce the stress that is used to help reduce
    anxiety, panic disorders and agoraphobia, which
    is an anxiety disorder.

  • Improved Flexibility
  • Todays society is afflicted by inactive jobs
    where workers sit throughout the day, leading to
    weakened muscle mass, fitness, and flexibility.
    Furthermore, office work puts more strain on the
    neck and shoulder from hunching over in front of
    a computer throughout the day. Yoga poses focus
    on stretching and lengthening the muscles to
    improve flexibility and help you with daily
    activities such as lifting and bending. Many
    sports person include yoga into their workout
    schedules to improve or maintain flexibility.
  • Provide Emotional Boost
  • Both yoga and meditation improve psychological
    focus and deliver a general feeling of wellbeing.
    Many yoga disciplines are based around an upbeat
    theme. Some yoga philosophy looks for the
    positive qualities in every way and is made for
    an uplifting experience focused on the
    celebration of the heart. Studies have found that
    yoga participants are cheerful, peaceful and
    optimistic in contrast to the control group who
    experienced a decrease in general wellbeing.

  • Meditation provides an emotional boost by
    concentrated relaxation, and it can be done
    anywhere. You can provide yourself an emotional
    boost by taking a 10-minute meditation break
    right at your desk by simply closing your eyes,
    focusing on relaxing your muscles and practicing
    deep breathing.
  • Improved Diet
  • Studies suggest that practicing yoga leads to
    better eating habits by improving fitness and
    body awareness. This, in turn, leads to increased
    self-esteem and the desire to deal with your
    body. Practicing meditation or yoga is a behavior
    modification technique that can enable you to
    improve your overall fitness.
  • Improved Health
  • Reducing your stress level, eating healthier and
    getting more exercise can obviously lead to
    better health. Modern life is full of stressful
    situations, fatigue from long hours and little
    sleep, allergies, anxiety disorders and a long
    list of stress-related diseases. By adding yoga
    or meditation to your life you will improve the
    quality and possibly the length of your life. It
    also means you can participate in more physical
    activities and simply feel better in the things
    you do every day.
