6 Reasons Why Yoga Practitioners Are More Successful

Success Through Yoga Practice

There are many reasons why yoga practitioners are more successful in whatever they do, but in this article we will talk about only 6 reasons.  In her famous poem, “Success is counted sweetest”, Emily Dickinson tried to explain what success is all about and who understands it the best.  But the real question is, what does it take to be successful?  There can be as many ways to succeed as there are people on the earth.  However, if you want to succeed in the real sense of the word, Yoga can be your perfect partner. No doubt it sounds like a bold statement, especially if you consider the number of businesses thriving solely on one product – teaching you how to succeed.  But the fact is, people who practice Yoga are more successful in life and whatever they do.

Yoga brings about a body-mind harmony

Yoga is an ancient Indian technique that uses simple breathing exercises and body postures to boost physical and mental health.  In Sanskrit, Yoga means “bringing together”, so all the different body postures and breathing exercises bring your mind and body together in perfect harmony.  When a person achieves this rare feat, success becomes just one of the blessings that come with it.

Yoga boosts overall health

When you practice Yoga regularly, the oxygen levels in your cells goes up.  This condition translates into better health and ability to ward off pathogens.  By taking yoga classes and doing this low-impact exercise, you can easily keep chronic ailments like blood pressure, diabetes, osteoarthritis and back pain in check.  As a result your productivity reaches its peak and you are able to achieve your short and long term goals in time. This cascading effect leads you to succeed in everything you do.

Yoga keeps you energetic

People in pursuit of success have to go that extra mile in everything they do and hence require more energy.  When the outer sources fail, the last resort is to rely on the inner storage.  Yoga unleashes your internal energy by improving blood flow and expelling the toxins with every breath. The result? More energy.

Yoga sharpens your imagination

Through books, it is only your intellect that gets enriched; however, for real success you need a perfect combination of intellect and imagination.  For your imagination to grow, you need to be at peace with yourself.  Yoga not only makes your body healthy, but also enriches the faculties of your brain by settling the chaos of thoughts in it.  When you practice Yoga regularly, you are able to focus better and solve complex problems easily by applying imagination.

Yoga keeps stress and depression at bay

You have to overcome new challenges on a day-to-day basis on your way to success.  This constant pressure to perform creates stress.  When you are not able to handle stress, it leads to depression.  However, Yoga is the perfect remedy to keep these stumbling blocks at bay.  This is because Yoga strengthens you from inside by reducing anxiety, panic attacks, stress and depression.  Based on Yoga, psychologists in the UK have developed a stress management program known as MBCT (Mindful Based Cognitive Therapy.)

Yoga Makes you self-aware

Being aware of one’s self is the mark of a successful person.  It means that they accept themselves without being judgmental or overly self-critical.  This is a quality that develops on its own when you are meditative.  Yoga facilitates this state of mind with breathing exercises and Yogic postures.  While rhythmic breathing halts the constant traffic of unwanted thoughts in your mind, the different postures make you aware of your limits.

Conclusion

Yoga is not merely a set of breathing exercises and body postures; rather, it is a lifestyle that facilitates physical well-being, mental peace, better focus and self-awareness.  Therefore, people who practice Yoga are more successful in everything they do.

Lovely knowledgeable teachers. The owner is super nice and gets to know her clients.The facility is clean, had a comfy atmosphere and offers free tea to practitioners, the only dislike I have id that there is Buddah images and statues everywhere and not everyone coming to the studio may not be a Buddhist. It would be nice if the studios itself did not have statues, other than that it is a overall great experience.read more

I did my Yoga Teacher Training at Mind to Body Yoga and it was one of the best decisions I've made. When you walk into the studio you feel a sense of home and community. The studio is beautiful and well kept. The training was in depth and very organized, while at the same time fun! Pritpal, the studio director who leads the training is wonderful and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the studio for YTT and also to practice in.read more

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
