Does Yoga Improve Your Mood?

Does Yoga Improve Your Mood?

Does Yoga Improve Your Mood? The Answer Is Yes. Regular Yoga Practices Do Improve The Flow Of Good Hormones (Endorphin And Dopamine) That Counter Stress Hormones Such As Cortisol. This Is Why Many People Feel Good Or High After A Good Yoga Session. In Addition To Producing Endorphins, Yoga And Exercise In General Also Produce Another Chemical Known As GABA. The Combination Of Endorphins And GABA Leads To A Lasting, Calming Effect Well After Your Workout Or Yoga Class Has Finished. These Chemicals Can Work To Control Stress And Anxiety In A Similar Way To Antidepressants And Anti-Anxiety Medications.

The regular production of endorphins holds many benefits in the body. Endorphins can: 

  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety 
  • Boost your overall health
  • Increase happiness 
  • Improve your self-confidence
  • Help you experience feel less pain 
  • Increase feelings of pleasure

When the Yoga Asanas ( Yoga Poses) poses are done in strong sequence with a focus on deep abdominal breathing you will experience less anxiety and mental peace.

Downward dog, Crow pose, Warrior poses, Cobra pose, Bow pose, Standing forward bend ( Uttanasana) are some poses along with meditation that can help in producing good Endorphins.

A regular yoga practice consisting of Yoga asanas, Prana yama and Meditation can be a great addition to your self-care routine.
