The Healing Power of Yoga: Discover Inner Peace and Self-Care

By Carson King

Ah, yoga! The buzzword that’s been viral for the last 2,000+ years! Unlike other viral trends, however (such as funny cat videos), yoga offers a genuine solution to genuine problems. While everyone comes to yoga under a different light- to become more flexible, lose weight, detox, or simply improve at Twister, yoga is a fruit basket waiting to be opened. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran practicing on an island paradise like Koh Samui, yoga is for everyone.

Why Does Yoga Matter?

Why does yoga matter? Whether it seems obvious or not, the answer is profound and genuine. Through yoga, we connect with something greater than ourselves. After all, the roots of the word “yoga” mean “to unite” and “to join.” Every pose and breath is a small step toward our greater union with the world around us.

Like a river that flows into the ocean, yoga helps us wash away the stresses and anxieties of our daily lives. Through poses that align us with the Earth, we find ourselves more connected to our physical bodies and each other. Ultimately, yoga reminds us that we are a part of something much bigger than ourselves. Its ancient wisdom teaches us that by reconnecting with ourselves and each other, we can achieve greater peace.

Meditation

It’s been said that anything can be considered “meditation” with enough awareness. Walking, sitting, or eating can become a vessel of inner transformation. Yoga is certainly no different. As your body flows from one position to another, your mind can ride the waves of movement and simply be. By allowing the yins and yangs of breath to ripple through your body, you connect body and soul in a deep, meaningful way.

Meditation can be further aided with visualizations and affirmations. Visualizing warmth, light, or love throughout your practice can be a profoundly personal and holistic love affair between the mental and physical. Ultimately, yogic meditation is like stepping into a river: the river is the same, but the water is different. Allow yourself to be surprised by the insights you acquire or deep-rooted feelings you may uncover. It’s a flowing art, a dance of self-discovery, and a way to set yourself free. Meditation matters, and it can change your life.

Inner Healing

A dance of the body, a melody of the mind. With each movement, we embrace a deeper connection, as we align ourselves with the harmony around us. Like a puzzle, our bodies fit together- weaving a canvas of light and color. Our chakras spark, our flow improves, and our sacred geometry realigns with the greater good. 

Yoga is a gift, a way to find gemstones hidden beneath the sand. The catch? The rubies and sapphires beneath our feet have always been there- we just never decided to look. By cleansing our energy body, releasing negative energies, and improving our blood flow, we open the pearl gates and allow divinity to seep into our fingertips. As you move from one meditative state to another, the space we create gives us time to see ourselves in a new light. Healing comes through understanding. Yoga offers a safe space for healing, inner transformation, and revelation. 

If inner healing is currently in your scopes, holistic tradition is here to help. Trying pranayama, rebirthing breathwork, or detoxing drinks, can be a wonderful step in the right direction.

Flexibility

A flexible body is a strong body. As the Chinese proverb says, “The bamboo that bends is stronger than the oak that resists.” The same applies to our bodies and minds. What if the best way to “fight the wind” wasn’t to fight at all? When we practice yoga, we practice our outer and inner flexibility – our ability to adapt and bend. We stretch deeply, surrendering our bodies to gravity and seeing where it takes us. It’s an adventure of personal transformation and trust. 

Besides, increased physical flexibility is a goal worthy of its own. After all, the list of benefits is almost as long as the entire route of the Tour de France:

  • Increase blood flow
  • Increased concentration and awareness
  • Improved posture and balance
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Better body image
  • Greater muscle tone and strength
  • A positive state of mind
  • Decreased risk of injuries

Output is the energy you burn via physical activity and exercise. If there is more input than output, it will lead to weight gain. If there is more output than input, excess weight can be burned.
