There is an increasing amount of scientific studies on how Yoga can benefit the brain. Controlling breath includes deep inhaling, exhaling, and retention of breath. Modern medical science has proven that Yoga can benefit both the mind and the body. The Pranayama practice in Yoga plays a prominent role in the Indian Yogic system for which the liberation of the soul is achieved through proper Pranayama and meditation.  Here are some of the ways Yoga works wonder on our brain.

Stimulates Breath and Movement

Our brains use about 20% of the total oxygen and 20% of the blood circulating in the body. Through practicing Yoga Pranayama and meditation, it helps to strengthen your breath awareness as well as functions of the lungs and diaphragm. Over time, the practice helps to increase oxygen intake and leads to an ample supply of oxygen for the brain. Additionally, Yoga practice stimulates movement through asana practice. By going through different poses, it prompts the mobility of your physical body and internal blood mobility throughout the body as well as increases the heart rate and blood flow to the brain.

 

Encourages The Growth of Brain Neurons and Their Connections

Neutrons are generally nerve cells comprised of a cell body, signal receivers on the cell body and a projection. New neutrons are created throughout the lifetime and increase rapidly in response to new mental activities. By practicing Yoga, your mind, body, and soul will constantly be pushed to be more open-minded and create new ways of thinking. It will help in improving brain flexibility and strength as well as decrease depression and anxiety symptoms.

 

 

Promotes A Peaceful Mind

Yogic philosophy of slowing down and pushing pauses help to counteract the negative thoughts we generate every day. By practicing Yoga, the number of thoughts is slowed down and encouraged the creation of a more positive mindset. Hence, from a neurological perspective, this is the reason why the process of creating a peaceful mind takes time and training.

 

Reduces Stress and Improves Executive Function

After practicing Yoga, you will experience less physiological stress, mental stress, and anxiety. It also helps in improving cognitive functioning, for instance, the working memory capacity and cognitive flexibility.

 

Encourages Mind and Body Integration

By coordinating breath with movement, you are better able to focus and sustain attention and increasingly be more aware of the physical and mental events that shape your experience. Yoga trains and refines your mental energy and harnesses it in appropriate ways when you need to.
