Therapeutic Yoga, Meditation Techniques and Benefits
The Integrative Medicine team take time out for self-care through the practice of Yoga.
Yoga is a centuries old science, philosophy, set of physical postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation techniques. Yoga can help balance the nervous system, relax the body, build strength, and focus the mind to alleviate stress, prevent disease and maintain a balanced state of health.
Meditation includes practices to quiet the chaotic nature of the mind, deepen focus and concentration and relax the nervous system. The benefits of yoga include deeper sleep, stronger concentration and increased feelings of tranquility and calm, which all help counteract the effects of stress.
