Whilst I am still at the beginning of the exploration of how yoga can increase neuroplasticity, neuron firing, and recruit parts of the brain to function more efficiently, and better; I am able to state clearly that yoga will help you to become more mindful, to sleep, feel increased joy, and to have a healthier brain function. Most importantly regular yoga practise is one of the easiest and most effective ways of working with insomnia. The key is to gently move the nervous system away from the stress response over time, towards the parasympathetic response, and to a balanced possibility between stress and relaxation. Mindfulness and yoga together can also help heal depression, ME, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and a host of other mental disturbances. I have been working with yoga practise and mindfulness intensively in a therapeutic way for over 2 years and I have been able to largely heal my insomnia (40 years in) anxiety and depression. This is in the main due to yoga practise, and Buddhist meditation. I am now training with the Minded Institute in London to further this research and work.
