Why Yoga Practice Makes You Happy

Reasons why practicing yoga will lead to happiness

Everybody is in pursuit of happiness, isn’t it? While social success is considered to be the biggest source of happiness, other things that are considered to bring joy to us include earning more money, traveling to exotic destinations, meeting new people, eating delicious food and the list goes on and on. But have you ever given a thought to the “real source of happiness“? What if we told you that the real source of eternal happiness lies within us? Naturally, you would ask the way to reach that source.

There are many ways to attain real joy and happiness, but Yoga is something that takes your there like nothing else. This is because when you attain happiness through Yoga, you simply stay there and realize that attaining something that you want does not bring happiness, but it happens the other way round – you are able to realize your dreams because you are happy from within. Numerous studies point to the positive effects of yoga on mental and physical health, as well as on personal development.

Let’s find out how Yoga makes you happy:

Brings mind and body in harmony

Yoga is not all about contorting your body in different positions to attain physical well-being; rather, it is a science that brings mind and body in perfect harmony. When you breathe in and breathe out in a particular yogic posture, it has a soothing effect on your nervous system and you start feeling relaxed. When your neurons become stress-free, it automatically translates into a feeling of joy. The postures that your yoga instructor makes you practice have been improvised by ancient yogis to offer you maximum benefits. So, all you have to do is practice yoga and happiness will come naturally to you.  Join a community that fits you best to experience the happiness in your life.

Reduces stress and anxiety and induces happiness

Our modern lifestyle is so fast and demanding that stress and anxiety have become a permanent part of our lives. In fact, we have become so used to these emotions that we have stopped feeling them. But from the inside, these negative emotions and stress do make us miserable. We lose the capacity to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and stay in a constant state of discontent and unhappiness. However, Yoga works directly on stress and anxiety – it infuses our mind with positive energy and makes our body more flexible. As a result, we start feeling happy and flexible mind and body wise respectively.

Increases self-awareness and mindfulness

Self-awareness is the ultimate joy for a human being and Yoga is the science that takes us on that path. The first thing that you will notice in you after practicing Yoga for a while is that you become more and more compassionate. You start being in harmony with other people and your surroundings. This is the first step that you take toward being happy and contented.

I was in search of a yoga teacher training program and stumbled upon Mind to Body....its become my second home ever since. The yoga teacher training program was very detail oriented and definitely prepared for my yoga journey. They covered a lot of topics like anatomy and basics of ayurveda as well. I continue to attend regular yoga classes there now. They offer many various different types of classes..my favs are the restorative and yin classes. The staff is very inviting and friendly and the studio is very very clean and well maintained. Oh yea...can't forget the complimentary delicious detox tea i have every time i attend a class is a bonus!!read more

If I could give Mind to Body more than 5 stars I would! Since starting at this studio 6 months ago, all my aches and pains have been eliminated. That's due to yoga but more so thanks to the personable, caring, passionate and dedicated instructors. It's a blessing to have found a yoga studio where each class by any instructor here is taught with so much passion and bring their own experiences and way of teaching, teaching the right techniques and foundations of poses (grounding feet and hands) alot of others overlook when teaching. They don't ever ever ever make you feel like you have to do a pose they always tell you to follow your body. Love the variety of classes, started with Restorative yoga and now on to hot detox yoga which I didn't ever think I'd do. Mind to body has a great community of employees and members who are always friendly with a huge smile on their faces. It's been so great to connect with other members especially while having the detox tea, yum! Honestly don't know how they keep it so clean with so many members but it's immaculate and shiny. Floors are always swept and mopped constantly. Couldn't have found a more amazing yoga studio, love you guys for all that you do! It's definitely been a life changing process and I'm excited to continue to grow in every way with all of you :).read more
