Yoga, a trend that has become widespread

If someone approaches yoga simply as a fashion, which at some point will decline, it should rather be revised. At a time characterized by rapid rhythms, anxiety and depression, yoga is a way out.

A survey conducted by 100 people in postgraduate studies from the University of Thessaly concludes:

The results of the research demonstrate the existence of a significant relationship between meditation, yoga, spirituality, and the reduction of depression and anxiety that should be considered in counseling for the treatment of these disorders. 1

This is one among many related researches that reach the same conclusion. But why and how is this happening?

A Yoga expert, author of many related books, David Frawley, on the pages of the Yoga & Ayurveda book, illuminates:

Yoga methods actually cover a wide range of our existence, from physical, sensory, emotional, mental, and spiritual, which is associated with self-confidence. It includes physical and moral attitudes, breathe control, sensory methods, prayer and complicated meditation procedures. 2

It is worthwhile to look at 5 (basic) steps, why we say YES to Yoga.
