Mental Performance

Because of the stimulation that yoga places upon the brain through focus and control, your brain will develop and grow stronger.

The breathing techniques that aid in better circulation will aid and assist in supplying the brain better oxygen flow. Therefore the brain is able to have a greater energy supply and this will lead to more steam cell branches.

When you learn how to use your brain better by putting in the time to stimulate and train it – the investment will be well worth it. Your quality of life will improve because you will improve, and please remember that we are living in the information age so there really is no excuse!

A common technique used in yoga is breathing through one nostril at a time. Electroencephalogram (EEG) studies of the electrical impulses of the brain have shown that breathing through one nostril, results in increased activity on the opposite side of the brain.

Some experts suggest that the regular practice of breathing through one nostril may even help to improve communication between the right and left side of the brain. Studies have also shown that this increased brain activity is associated with better performance and doctors even suggest that yoga can enhance cognitive (learning) performance.
