When I get new students in the studio I often see that they come with the mindset of yoga as merely another exercise routine. Yoga’s healing benefits come from practising yoga with an integrated approach of mind and body, and we learn in the very first class how to do so.
Yoga traditions from India have relied for thousands of years on the knowledge that both mind and body are intimately connected. The body may be viewed as the physical expression of the mind and spirit. So most of your habits, be it physical or mental, can translate into physical conditions in our body.
90% of ailments like stress, toxicity, anxiety, sleep apnea and many other conditions even cancer can be treated and healed with regular yoga practice.
