The 5 Psychological Benefits Of Yoga 🤔 Mental Health

The 5  Psychological Benefits Of Yoga 🤔 Mental Health



hi welcome to jivayogalive my name is
Charlie and in this video I would like
to talk to you about these psychological
benefits of yoga and there are so many
everybody knows about the physical sides
of yoga but let’s get into what’s going
on in this mental battlefield almost
that we have and how yoga can really
benefit you so we’re going to go through
five all right number one yoga is good
for anxiety and I’ll tell you why and
that is because when you practice yoga
the aim is to really come into this
present moment and we do that by
focusing on our breath or we do it by
focusing on the posture that were in and
so when we are spending time in the
present moment we are coming away from
this future that does not exist and this
is when we feel anxiety when we start
getting overwhelmed about what is to
come the unknown we start to create
these mental stories about this this
future that literally is not even real
and so when we do yoga we come well away
from that and this takes me to our
second benefit and that is yoga is good
for depression and so unlike anxiety
where you’re living in this future
depression you’re usually living in the
past you might be sad about something
that’s been and gone you might be
missing someone and so like anxiety
depression even though that on different
ends of the spectrum it’s the same
situation we have going on the yoga is
going to bring you out of these places
that are only real in this illusory mind
and so it brings you into this present
moment and we let all of that go so
anxiety and depression both of these
things yoga is amazing for the third
benefit we’re going to cover is how yoga
is good for the relationship that you
have with yourself and so when you’re
making time to get onto your mat every
day if you can but even just whenever
you can you’re letting your body know at
a subconscious level that you are worthy
of self-love because when you’re
practicing yoga you’re basically
practicing self-love you’re getting in
tune with your breath and your body and
you’re giving yourself
space the four corners of your mat and
it’s just for you and yourself and so
you really start to become aware of the
body the mind starts are quieting down
and you’re just developing this really
positive relationship with your own
being and that is amazing you start to
become more patient with yourself you
become more relaxed especially when it
comes to things like trying to get into
peak poses or one day your balance might
not be as good as it was the day before
and instead of beating yourself up
you’re just you have this patience and
compassion for yourself and this takes
me to our fourth benefit which is the
relationship you have with others so
when you’re practicing yoga and you’re
developing this amazing relationship
with yourself you’re becoming more
patient you’re becoming more
compassionate and all this is going on
on the mat this starts to ripple out
into the rest of your life and into your
relationship with others you start to
become more patient with others you
start to be less triggered by others so
with your family with your friends these
little things they do that maybe once
upon a time before your yoga days might
have set something off in you you’re
able to just come back to your breath
and breathe again back to that present
moment and you can just let things go a
lot easier so you have this amazing
relationship developing not only with
yourself but with other people and
people you’ll thank yourself and your
friends will thank you for it and then
that leaves me with our fifth benefit a
little bonus and that is honing the
skills of memory and concentration so
basically in yoga we are focusing on
cultivating this what we call Dharana
and that is single point of focus and we
do this often when we’re in a posture by
focusing on a diversity point and that
helps us to keep our balance so if we’re
in a standing balancing pose we’ll find
one single point we’ll focus on that and
that just helps us stay in the pose for
longer and so while we’re cultivating
that on the mat again it’s gonna ripple
out into the rest of your life so your
meditations are going to be better
because you’re better able to
concentrate on the breath on the body
and you’ll notice these kind of benefits
in any kind of work that you’re doing
any kind of study just at your job the
better your memory is the better
concentration you have the better work
you’re going to get done and so these
are our five benefits we have anxiety
reduction depression
reduction you can it be instilling this
amazing relationship with yourself
number three with others number four and
then holding the skills of memory and
concentration which you’ll see on the
mat and off the mat and so this is why
or one of the many reasons that we
practice yoga please do give it a go and
let me know and have a beautiful day
