We would like to emphasize the benefits of an ancient practice called Yoga that, in its full spectrum, is what F.R.Y. offers plus more.Becoming a Yoga practitioner does not mean you are trying to reach your feet with your hands or training to become a performer for the Circle du Soleil or learning to bend over like a rag doll. Yoga is a body-mind system that has the ability to free yourself, free your joints and loosen the kinks within your body and free your mind by creating more space and learning to differentiate without emotional engagement. Postures are only a little part of yoga. Many other practices and techniques belonging to the yogic path can open the road to your freedom and awareness.Yoga with all its aspect such as postures (asanas), meditation and breathwork may influence multiple psychological mechanisms, such as and just as examples denial, repression, projection, intellectualization, that influence your emotional well-being. A 2020 study (that can be read here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7081324/) examined psychological and emotional changes across a single session of yoga. A group study made of 144 regular yoga practitioners completed measures of mindfulness, body consciousness, self-transcendence, social connectedness, positive engagement, revitalization and tranquility immediately before and after a yoga session. The results have shown that the levels of positive emotions (engagement, tranquility and revitalization) increased post-yoga while exhaustion decreased. What must be underlined is that the study above revealed that even a single session of Hatha yoga can improve mood. Yoga with a greater emphasis on restorative postures was associated with greater self-transcendence (going beyond the perceived limits of individual self), spirituality and the emotion of tranquility while yoga with a greater emphasis on breathwork was associated with greater increases in body consciousness and self-transcendence. Our suggestion? As Confucius said: “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand”. So, try it and through your practice you may have an experience and through your experience you can begin to understand things on a deeper level. But choose the right teachers, investigate their background, their studies and experiences. Yoga can be beneficial but you can also hurt yourself and mislead you to some wrong beliefs other than wrong movements and improper techniques that cannot be of any benefit to you. Once you have done your research, then practice and do it “all in to win it”. Trust it and you will get the most out of your practice.Stay safe.
