Hatha Yoga combines breathing techniques with poses to reduce stress, promote blood flow, flexibility, and mental focus. Practicing yoga eases everything from chronic pain to depression, anxiety, and elevated blood pressure. Practicing hatha yoga is known to increase brain-power by focusing the mind, strengthening concentration, and deep breathing. Diaphragmatic breathing provides more oxygen to brain cells and protects memory connections. The intentional focus on slow movement helps control the stress response and builds coherence between right and left brain.
