What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Yoga has become very popular over the past several years, and millions of people are enjoying it today. People gravitate to this form of relaxation because it makes them feel good, both in their mind and in their bodies. Best Drug Rehabilitation offers a yoga therapy program for their clients to enjoy.

Yoga therapy generally consists of learning asana, which are yoga poses, breathing techniques, and sometimes meditation. The combination of these things has numerous health benefits. At Best Drug Rehabilitation, clients can participate in yoga fitness, which will help them tremendously while they take part in their treatment program.

Health Benefits of Yoga Therapy

  • There is a biochemical response in the body when yoga and deep breathing techniques are performed. The movements involved cause a surge in hormones, which work to create a calming feeling throughout the mind and body. This feeling relieves stress and tension in the body and mind.
  • The deep breathing techniques used in yoga increases the lung capacity, deepens and lengthens breathing, and causes an increase in oxygen to the brain. This stimulates relaxation and has a positive effect on mood.
  • Most people report having a clearer mind after yoga and an increase in their ability to focus.
  • The movements of yoga apply pressure to the liver and the lymph nodes. The liver is the main detoxification center of the body. Due to this pressure, the toxins are flushed out more readily. With the additional pressure being exerted on the lymph nodes, impurities are also filtered out more easily.
  • Yoga has a positive effect on the circulatory system and decreases the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.
  • Yoga has a positive effect on the digestive system as well and aids in eliminating bodily waste.
  • Muscle and soft tissue stretching are performed in a safe way during yoga. This stretching results in greater flexibility and free range of motion in the joints. The joints are well lubricated and stiffness and pain are relieved due to the lactic acid release.
  • Many people report a lessening of their fatigue, a greater endurance during physical activity, and a noticeable boost in their immune system since partaking in yoga.
  • An increase in muscle strength, a more toned core, and an improvement in posture are noticed with this form of physical fitness.
  • Many report having a decrease in their cholesterol and triglyceride levels since participating in yoga.
