Yoga has been practiced for over 2,000 years and has a number of health benefits. However, yoga is often treated as “exercise” performed on your own, or in a one-routine-fits-all class. Instead, Confidia incorporates Yoga as an important part of your primary care – and offers personalized, certified instruction right inside our Institute.

Inside The Science

The Power of Yoga

In the last four years, the number of yoga practitioners in our country has nearly doubled. Over 36 million Americans practice yoga to reduce their stress, improve their mental health, and expand their physical abilities. Yoga is particularly powerful because it incorporates aspects of psychology, sports science, neurology, physical therapy, gymnastics and personalized fitness routines within a single activity.

Yoga & Brain Chemistry

Yoga helps release several chemicals within your brain – including Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, and dopamine, which help the body feel relaxed and content. Low levels of these neurotransmitters are often the cause of depression and anxiety. Yoga can help replenish neurotransmitter levels. Yoga also helps regulate emotions through increased focus and self-awareness – by causing long-term changes in the portion of the brain that controls emotion, called amygdala.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga has been used to help individuals deal with, and overcome, trauma such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In addition to the mental and emotional benefits listed above, yoga can help those with PTSD feel reconnected with the world around them. This helps them reintegrate with society better. Yoga is regularly taught in hospitals and nursing homes because of its therapeutic benefits.
