Understanding the Mind-Body Connection and How to Improve It Through Yoga


“Yoga is considered to be a relaxation-response technique, much like meditation and mindfulness. In other words, by practicing yoga we are actually facilitating a physiological state of deep rest.

As a matter of fact, the health benefits of relation-response techniques are so powerful they can reduce the need for health care services by 43 percent.”
