Here at myYogaTeacher, we understand the effects of all the world’s problems on people. We feel them too. And we want to help.
Climate change. Wildfires. A pandemic. Political unrest. Social unrest.
Mix in work and family and all the other aspects of our lives, and you’ve got the set up for inner and outer chaos.
It doesn’t have to be that way. We’re not saying yoga cures every problem, but it certainly will help bring more peace and harmony to your busy, bustling, crazy life. The more peace you bring into your life, the healthier you will become. Physically, mentally, and emotionally.
We believe that yoga is a path to wellness. That’s why myYogaTeacher offers a free-2-week trial where you can explore over 35 different yoga classes and many different types of yoga, all taught by expert yoga teachers from the birthplace of yoga, India.
Yoga brings harmony to your chaos and really can heal you in ways you’d never guess possible.
There is no doubt that yoga helps people feel better physically. But do you know how or in what ways yoga can benefit you besides helping you become more flexible?
This is just a small list of ways yoga provides physical benefits. There are so many other ways yoga helps people feel better physically. Like helping with arthritis, depression, liver problems, obesity, and even eating disorders.
Speaking of depression…
Depression affects approximately 40 million Americans every year. And that number has steadily increased in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, many people don’t have access to affordable or reliable mental health care. Or they do not understand the severity of their mental health problems enough to seek out the help they need.
A multitude of studies back the idea that a regular yoga practice helps heal many types of mental health problems, anxiety and depression being two.
Here are some other ways yoga helps heal mental health issues:
Many people underestimate the power of stress and trauma in their lives. Stress increases blood pressure, cortisol levels, suicide rates, the likelihood of eating disorders, and sleeplessness.
Trauma goes unrecognized by people suffering from it and mental health practitioners every single day.
Yoga brings healing to the world through better mental health. It’s actually an important tool used in psychotherapy. It’s also much more affordable and accessible than psychotherapy or prescription drugs. When mental health is better, emotional health follows easily behind.
Yoga is a journey. It helps us unravel who we are on a heart and soul level. Who we are underneath all the roles of husband, wife, parent, child, friend.
Yoga brings us to a place of self-awareness, a place where we can be present in every moment. A place where we are better able to control our inner and outer responses to outside stimuli. We can’t always control the world around us, and we certainly can’t control other people’s actions.
A regular yoga practice helps us control and regulate our emotions.
On top of that, when we practice yoga consistently, our bodies release tension in areas where we may have pain. We begin to strengthen muscles that support our frame and joints, which also alleviates pain. Since pain can cause serious emotional distress, the idea that yoga provides relief from pain and promotes emotional well-being is huge.
Yoga is an ancient practice with modern benefits. MyYogaTeacher has made it easy for you to find the perfect class for you with an instructor you feel comfortable with. On top of that, as a member, you have the opportunity to try many different classes from anywhere in the world you may be and at almost any time of day!
We truly care about your health and well-being and the power of yoga to heal the world. And it’s important to us that high quality, personalized, expert yoga instruction is affordable and easily accessible to anyone who wants it or needs it.
See you on the mat!
