Review of Research on Yoga Tools such as guided relaxation, slow breathing and positive affirmations
In Yoga Therapy Greece we combine the ancient yoga wisdom and the evidence informed practices suggested by research. Critically evaluating the latest and most robust research articles, we are happy to share a small summary of them hoping that you will find it interesting to read and a help to understand the effectiveness of yoga and how much yoga helps through the guided visualisation, the slow breathing and the positive affirmation as a stand-alone practice or as part of integrative medicine.
Recent and robust research articles showing that well known yoga tools such as guided relaxation (Hadjibalassi et al., 2018), slow breathing (Russo et al., 2017), and positive affirmations (Epton et al., 2015) have positive effects on the sympathetic nervous system, on the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis, on stress reduction and on health behaviour change, very important aspects in management of chronic conditions and in changing to a healthier lifestyle.
A healthier lifestyle is crucial for most of the noncommunicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, cancer, COPD and asthma.
Internationally in Yoga Therapy and in Yoga Therapy Greece by building therapeutic relationship and through motivational interviewing we focus a lot in changing self-limiting beliefs and dysfunctional habits, empowering the individual to choose a healthier lifestyle with more physical activity and a more balanced state of mind. Through the transformational tools of breath awareness, breathing techniques, personalized guided relaxation we facilitate people to their transformation to their best version of themselves.
