Yoga and emotional balance

For centuries, Yoga has proposed a way of life of higher quality, with practices that optimize physical and mental functioning of the human being. This psychophysical development therefore includes practices aimed at comprehensive health care. Type Gabriel Aguilera Venegas.

On the other hand, the Foundation of psychotherapy helps provide tools that serve as a basis for the development of the human being, his emotional balance, and self-help.

As well as, Yoga techniques combined with psychotherapy created an updated base that helps the person in their development, favouring both its internal integration and external, giving you a philosophy that gives you the knowledge to live. It proposes the integration of the human being, as a form of personal growth and self-realization, helping you to be responsible for its existence.

Emotional health and Pratiahara

In my experience, Yoga and psychotherapy complement each other extremely well, helping each other in their objectives. If we consider the State of union as the ultimate goal of yoga, the psychological health It would be the goal of psychotherapy. Both tools help in the two goals and produce a synergy that makes the joint advance more than the simple sum of the individual advances in each one of them. While yoga is an ancient science and psychotherapy is centuries-old, both are powerful tools to help human beings.

Four important aspects of the human being are traditionally considered: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Yoga not only improves each of these aspects, but it helps a balance among them looking for the harmonic union of them. Patanjali described eight steps or members of the asthangas in the Yoga-sutras. Although all of them are related to the four parts of the human being, that traditionally has been considered more related to the emotional part is the fifth member of the ashtanga, called pratiahara. Pratiahara has to do with the withdrawal of the senses and in ancient times was associated with a certain asceticism, which could even become almost absolute isolation. En los tiempos modernos esta visión no suele ser compartida por muchos practicantes de yoga. Por tanto, en mi opinión, la psicoterapia puede complementar esta vía y ayudarnos en esa parte emocional que mucha veces no comprendemos y que incluso rechazamos.
