What is Yoga?

By: Chass ArmstrongPosted: Section: Articles

Red Mountain Sedona is a therapeutic healing program that provides a range of professional clinical services to teens. The adolescents who use our services are those who are experiencing a variety of issues, including addictions, academic failure, intellectual disabilities, and behavioral, mental or emotional health issues. One form of therapy we offer the young people is yoga.

What is Yoga?

With a history of over 5,000 years, the origins of yoga are India and the Hindu religion. It is a form of spiritual exercise that helps people focus on their internal emotions rather than on external distractions. It is not just a physical form exercise as many people believe; it is also a way of elevating spirituality and integrating emotions. There are several forms of yoga, each of which serves a different purpose to the body and mind. Many of these variations of yoga predominantly involve breathing and meditation (1).

What Are the Physical Benefits of Yoga?

While the benefits to posture, flexibility and muscle strength are well-known, people are often not aware of how yoga is beneficial to other aspects of physical health. Those who practice yoga on a regular basis profess to experience better overall health than they did prior to including yoga in their routine. Just some of the physical benefits include improved bone health, lower blood pressure, stronger joints, increased blood flow and lowers blood sugar (2).

How Can Yoga Benefit Emotional Well-being?

Yoga can also improve the emotional well-being of teens and this is one of our main focuses when delivering such programs to young people. First, yoga helps people to focus on their emotions rather than concerning themselves with other things in the outside world. Secondly, this form of exercise can help teens to relax. This is particularly beneficial to those who are experiencing stress or those suffer from anxiety.

Also, yoga can help an adolescent to build their inner strength and this will boost their self-esteem. Finally, yoga can help you to sleep better and a good sleeping pattern is proven to promote good mental health. Each of these benefits combines to improve the overall emotional well-being of a teen and increase their level of general happiness (2).

If your teen is currently experiencing issues and you feel that our therapies may benefit them, then do not hesitate to contact us at Red Mountain Sedona. We can advise you on the best program to meet your teen’s individual needs and support you in helping your adolescent to move forward in life. Choosing to enroll your teen in one of our clinical programs will benefit both your teen and the family as a whole.
