Yoga and Emotional Stability

When we are anxious, depressed or angry and carrying distressful emotions for a long period of time it can begin to effect our health adversely. Yoga has been known to calm the body and mind, to raise awareness to yourself and diminish all the troubles that are taking place around you. Your practice can be described as balancing, strengthening, calming or energizing but most of all you must realize that any of these should be rewarding to you. To have a rewarding practice you must know what you wish to get out of it. If you are practicing simply for health then that is what you should receive, feeling energized, calm and strengthened is nothing less than healthy; healthy for the mind and body. If you are practicing to relieve stress, anxiety or pain then that will be the outcome of your practice; breathing, concentrating, almost going into a different state; yoga can be compared to hypnosis but is more similar than different because you are simply letting go during your practice to cleanse your mind. Your yoga practice can lead up to equanimity; maintaining mental calmness or composure especially during difficult times or while under tension. Yoga will help you maintain emotional stability if you allow it to. By Amalia Lages
