It is a well-known fact that the mind and the body are connected and one cannot be happy without the other. It is a lack of balance that causes a disturbance in the alignment of the body with the mind.

There are several factors that cause a state of turmoil and disturbance within the body and the mind.

  • Long working hours
  • Stress and tension
  • Excessive intake of alcohol and caffeine
  • Lack of sleep hours
  • Lack of exercise and physical activity for rejuvenation of the body
  • Hectic travel schedules
  • Shortage of relaxation hours

Health And Mind Problems

These are some of the factors that can cause stress and tensions within the body and the mind. As a result of such a lifestyle, you may face certain side effects as well.

  • Chronic headaches
  • Stressed eyes
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Back and shoulder pain
  • Obesity
  • High Blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Insomnia

All of these leave a serious impact on your health and the state of your mind; this can affect your personal relationships and family conditions along with your aptitude and work-related performances as well.

Benefits Of Yoga

We at Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center believe in the inclusion of yoga and meditation as an integral part of our daily routine. Through our yoga classes in Bangalore, we help to bring back the lack of balance and harmony within the body and the mind.

  • Regular asanas help to create greater flexibility, fitness, and toning of the body.
  • There is a better flow of blood circulation in the body that enhances energy and vitality levels. Improves the skin and eyes considerably.
  • Heart and liver functions are positively improved.
  • Muscle strength and tissue repair are enhanced greatly with better cell regeneration and revival.
  • The posture of the body is improved and this also takes care of those annoying joint pain and painful muscle pulls.
  • Sleep is better and this also means a sound rest for the tired body. Much of the body’s repair and rejuvenation happens during sleep hours.

Benefits Of Meditation

We at Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center understand the need for meditation in modern life. It is an invaluable exercise for stressed minds that are often plagued with different thoughts.

Unless there is relief in the mind the body will not flourish well.

  • Meditation helps to bring back focus to the wandering minds.
  • It is a state of calm when you close your eyes and focus on the darkness around you.
  • This greatly helps in improving focus and concentration on things that matter and are important in your life.
  • Gradually that state of mind helps to calm your thoughts and free your mind completely.
  • There is a lighter feeling you enjoy when the mind is empty and free.
  • Meditation helps you to regulate and control your breathing.
  • This ensures a greater flow of oxygen into your body thus stimulating good health.

We help you to achieve these goals with a proper understanding of the various postures and ways you can meditate no matter where you are.

Our individual attention and supervision through our gurus and master teachers are also available at the center.

Even in the middle of a busy work day you can find solace and calm with as less as five minutes of meditation.
