Yoga has been used for over 5,000 years. It is known to unify body, mind and spirit. It helps us to get to know ourselves better and it teaches us compassion and love towards others and ourselves. The focus is on self-examination and spiritual growth.
Today, yoga is often used to complement psychotherapy. Through different techniques, which have proven to be effective, depressive moods become elated, anxiety calmed and the nervous system balanced. Some of the yogic tools are pranayama (breathing techniques), asana (postures), mantras (sound), mudras (hand gestures), meditation, sankalpa (affirmation), bhavana (visualization) and Yoga Nidra (“deep relaxation with inner awareness”).
