Did you know...
“Any prolonged negative mental state will inevitably weaken your body. And by the time you see physical symptoms, you’ve probably held that state of being for quite some time.”
In other words...
So your mental health is closely tied to the your physical health. Your mind can zap your energy and do a lot more harm. It is frankly quite distressing to realize the depth of physical and emotional problems triggered by the brain.
And now what?
As part of my advanced yoga teacher studies, I researched the matter. I did not exclude the medical field in my search but I found a general lack of agreement between doctors, readings were confusing and more importantly not a single solution was mentioned...well other than pills!
Yoga, on the other hand, describes really well how energetic blockages present in our body's energy centers manifests into physical and emotional symptoms. Not surprisingly as YOGA is the union of the MIND-BODY. Great, so why cover the matter again?
Keep It Simple! For the novice amongst us, you can get lost in translation (quite literally too with the common use of Sanskrit) and piecing cause, effect and fixes together was harder than it should be for such valuable health information.
So without reinventing the wheel, I put together a quick reference to help you identify which physical and emotional problems are associated and which yoga poses will help eliminate the symptoms.
It's not a quick fix pill with lots of side effects, it's a benefits only list definitely worth the time you will spend! If you are not familiar with yoga poses, I recommend talking with a yoga instructor for proper alignment and demonstration of the poses.
