For Gail Stuart, psychiatric researcher from the Medical University of South Carolina, Yoga is an antidote to stress . This discipline is a different training says, a good alternative to aerobics or exercise machines, which remind you of a torture chamber.
Yoga is the highest form of the burgeoning mind-body health movement, which includes the tai chi, qigong meditation and other types of exercises.
The practice of yoga should integrate all aspects of human existence. While many of the Western practitioners focus on the asanas, for others, yoga is a way to embrace all of life and A way to happiness.
Considering its noble goals, yoga is wonderfully simple and can be done anywhere and at any time. Taken to its extreme it includes everything from a moral code and eating habits to deep meditation. It is usually a combination of asanas, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation.
Yoga is a form effective and relatively cheap, for many anxious and stressed patients, also, motivates them to achieve a good physical shape.
