Yoga Exercise (Asana) and Yoga Therapy

Yoga is a complete exercise which stretches or tones muscles, apart from influencing the health of joints, spine and skeletal system. When the spine’s flexibility and strength are intact, it results in improved circulation. It also plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of internal organs, glands and nerves. The exercise also liberates huge amounts of energy by releasing tension, both physical and mental in nature.

Yoga’s focus on body, mind and spirit is based on the fact that a soul is on the way to perfection. Sivasoorya Yoga School specializes in yoga therapy for treating back pain (spine disorders), heart diseases, Arthritis, joint pain, diabetes, respiratory disorders and others.

Yoga therapy utilizes poses, breathing techniques, and meditation to benefit and improve overall health. While different types of yoga can bring health benefits, yoga therapy involves employing a variety of yoga practices to improve a health condition or to ease a natural process, such as pregnancy or menopause. Among the yogic tools used therapeutically are asana (the physical postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, and guided imagery. Although many people don't realize it, yogis also consider diet as an integral part of yoga and therefore of yoga therapy.

As one of the best Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat in Kerala, Sivasoorya Yoga Ayurveda School combines authentic yoga with Ayurvedic medicines or treatments for treating many physical and mental illnesses which have seen amazing results.


Ayurveda Yoga in Kerala gives more emphasize on Pranayama, the breathing exercise. Usually most human beings do not employ the full capacity of their lungs while breathing. This is the root cause of several physical and mental ailments. When yoga teaches people to utilize their lungs to the maximum, such acts of controlled and rhythmic breathing results in increased oxygen intake and facilitates removal of fatigue. Several breathing techniques teach us to attain pranayama (control of the life force).

Pranayama has several benefits including mental calmness, mental clarity, heightened intellectual capacity, improved strength and energy.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a solution put forward by Ayurveda Yoga Gurus in Kerala when a constantly overworked body loses its natural capacity to perform heavier duties. In the modern era, unbearable stress is part and parcel of our lifestyle. This makes it hard for a person to relax. As everyone knows, a human being cannot continue his duties in the absence of adequate rest. With the help of tried and tested yoga techniques of deep relaxation, every muscle of the human body is brought under calmness. A deeper level of inner peace results from the rejuvenation of the nervous system. This rejuvenation is also achieved through controlled breathing. The benefits of meditation include the increased satisfaction and happiness with our own personal lives.

Vegetarian & Ayurvedic diet

Yoga also plays a key role in maintaining the perfect shape of our bodies. At the same time, it also asserts the importance of following a clean vegetarian diet. A person’s diet has a direct impact on the healthy functioning of his mind. A lacto-vegetarian diet is best suited for people following the yogic lifestyle. Food items like fruit, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and vegetables are highly recommended. The benefits are lean body and clear mind, along with a healthy environment.


According to yoga, a person’s thoughts are responsible for his misery, sorrow and suffering, success or happiness. A person who harbors negative thoughts could be troubled by frustration, restlessness and anger. As a result, these conditions could lead to unbalanced actions. Practicing Yoga could benefit in nurturing cheerfulness, joy and courage.

There is no doubt that positive thoughts result in lesser cases of depression and distress. Yoga employs several techniques to bring thoughts under control and inculcate inner peace, integration and harmony in people. Meditation and vedantic studies are among these techniques. Surveys have reported increased lifespan, resistance to diseases and overall well-being in positive minds.

Yoga Mind Therapy or Yogic Psychotherapy

Yoga mind therapy does the job of opening the secret door into a person’s inner mind. Mind is the seat of deep-rooted obsessions, emotional traumas and self-defeating attitudes.

Ayurveda Yoga experts in Kerala use yoga nidra (yogic sleep) to access this area and target the root of negative memories. Yoga nidra is defined as an altered state of awareness. Some of its characteristics are focused attention, acute sensory perception, physical relaxation, hyper-suggestibility etc.

A person’s subconscious mind holds the memories of previous experiences. These memories could be used to solve our psychological issues. When suggestions are given to mind which is under the spell of yoga nidra, we can witness immediate results. In other words, these suggestions are accepted by the mind without questioning and associated changes seen in the person’s physical level. Yoga Mind Therapy keeps medicines and technological devices at bay.
