2. BREATHING PRACTICES
We’ll learn breathing practices that calm our minds and help improve creativity and memory power.
Mudras are hand gestures that guide the flow of energy (prana) in our body. When mudras are practised in combination with meditation and breathing practices, they help improve concentration and improve our memory
Chanting mantras has shown to heal our bodies psychosomatically. Scientists have discovered that chanting creates neuro-linguistic and psycho-linguistic effects which help improve our focus and concentration even if we don’t know the meaning of what we’re chanting.
Meditation helps induce a state of restful alert in our body which boosts creativity, focus, and memory.
Can Yoga Cure Neurological Disorders?Yoga describes the union between the mind and body and studies have shown that it is effective in treating certain neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Although the exact physiological mechanism is not completely known because of certain limitations in the studies, yoga therapy has been effective in:
- Mitigating the pain caused due to Multiple Sclerosis.
- Improving grip strength in patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
- Relieving the pain and stiffness in Fibromyalgia patients. Mild therapeutic Yoga also helped the participants improve their balance and strength.
- Decreasing the frequency of seizures in epileptic patients.
- Reduce sciatica pain which helps lower the dosage of pain medications.
How Does Yoga Help With Mitigating Neurological Disorders?To understand how Yoga helps with neurological disorders, we must first understand our Nervous system.
The human nervous system is the electrical circuit which helps our organs and body parts communicate with each other.
We can visualise this as messengers carrying electrical signals to various parts of the body to regulate their function and keep us physically and mentally fit.
The nervous system consists of the Central Nervous System and the Peripheral nervous system.
The former consists of the brain and spinal cord. The Peripheral Nervous System is further split into somatic and autonomic nervous systems.
While the somatic nervous system controls our muscle movements, the autonomic nervous system regulates the automatic functions of our body.
This system is further split into the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous System which is responsible for the flight and fight response of our body.
When the fight or flight response is activated, we go into a state of stress. And this may increase the likelihood of epileptic seizures.
Practising yoga activates our parasympathetic nervous system which helps our body calm down and relieve stress. When the stress is reduced, the likelihood of an epileptic seizure also decreases.
As for the other neurological disorders, we cannot establish the physiological mechanism due to the lack of research and other limitations in studies.
How Does Yoga Boost Creativity, Memory, And Concentration?
We know that our brain produces electrical impulses in the form of brain waves. These waves oscillate at different frequencies depending on our mental state.
If we’re restless and worried, our brain produces beta waves that oscillate 13-36 times a second.
If we’re restful and alert, our brain’s oscillations slow down to about 6-13 times a minute and produce alpha waves.
Studies have shown that we are most creative when our mind is restful and alert. Meditative practices in yoga bring the mind to the alpha state within minutes despite noise and distraction. And this helps boost our creativity and memory.
What Type Of Learning Experience Should I Expect?
