Ever wonder why you feel so good and refreshed after a yoga class. I tend to feel amazing, and I enjoy the calming effects. Practicing yoga and meditation can effect your brain in a positive way. You can definitely notice a positive difference after attending a yoga session. Even scientists and researchers are now studying how yoga affects the brain.
Studies have been made to prove that after one yoga session, the GABA levels in your brain increase. Anti-depressants also work by boosting these GABA levels. Yoga seems to be the better choice for depression, anxiety and stress, since there are no side effects and many benefits for your mind, body and spirit.
Yoga can improve your cognitive functions and memory by reducing the stress levels in your body. When you are stressed, your body releases cortisol into the blood stream, which uses up a lot of glucose in the body. This leads to a fuel deficit for your brain. Too much cortisol produces high amounts of free radicals which damages your brain cells.
