As Western society’s interest in Yoga and its health benefits has increased, modern science has delved deeper into research on the biological effects of yoga.
Did you know that Yoga actually has the capacity to change your brain? Science shows that Yoga can enhance gene activity that is good for you, and down regulate activity that’s bad for you.
Scientific research now proves that those who practice some yoga on a regular basis (just 12 minutes most days) improve their ability to manage their stress response effectively.
Science has also now proven that the mind has predominant control over our health. Only 1% of illness is related to our genes, and 90% of illness is related to stress! Stress is the mind overworking, which is brought into balance through Yoga.
