Mindfulness, Ayurveda & Yoga
Mindfulness is a Mindfulness based approaches and contemplative approaches were drawn from the Buddhist tradition are aimed at relieving the symptoms of psychological stress, negative mental states and physical pain through techniques that could involve gentle yoga movements and meditation to heighten a client’s awareness of physical sensations.
Ayurveda is an ancient healing system originating over 5,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda teaches us to become more in-tune with our bodies, thus allowing us to recognize imbalances when they begin. It teaches us how to live more harmoniously with the cycles of life, and its daily and seasonal routines can bring balance to our mind and body.
Yoga therapy provides effective methods that include connecting the body and the mind to help to attain states of peace of mind and reduce anxiety and depression. It also provides coping mechanisms as well as many positive physical benefits in the form of relaxation that allow people suffering from internal stresses to reach a point of calm and peace. When this state is achieved, one is fully aware of being in the present moment and able to let go of the pain, the frustration, and the negative emotions that often accompany these illnesses.
