The Powerful Holistic Benefits of Yoga and Meditation

When it comes to authentic body-mind wellness, few things compare to the natural benefits of yoga and meditation. Yoga initiates physical components that help stimulate blood and lymph flow (thereby reducing inflammation), while meditation works to quiet the mind and reduce anxiety and chronic stress, two root causes of inflammatory disease. At Rejuvenation Health, renowned author and biologic dentist Dr. Gerry Curatola has pioneered a holistic approach to health and wellness that emphasizes mindful meditation, empowers patients through restorative yoga, and galvanizes self-healing through internal balance.

What is Transcendental Meditation and Mindfulness?

Human emotion and physiology are fueled on a molecular level by energy. Just like an electric car needs to be plugged in and recharged, your body, mind and spirit need recharging! The powerful holistic benefits of meditation, which embraces stillness and quieting the mind, provide an excellent opportunity to recharge the emotive spectrum and bring the body, mind and spirit back to a state of calm. In addition to guided meditation, our team of naturopathic health professionals at Rejuvenation Health offer:

How Inflammation Affects Your Health

As “energy beings,” we’re easily susceptible to the physically and emotionally draining aspects of stress, anxiety and depression. When stress and anxiety become too much, the body and mind go into panic mode, and the result is often a negative physical manifestation in the form of inflammation. In the event that stress-related inflammation becomes chronic, a variety of physical ailments and diseases can ensue. For these reasons, it is important to use guided meditation – even if just for 10 or 15 minutes per day – in order to quiet the mind, reduce stress, and revert the mind and body back to a state of balance.

Restorative Yoga and Guided Meditation at Our World-Renowned Wellness Center

In the same way that guided meditation reverts the mind back to a state of calm and quiet, yoga in East Hampton, NY helps revert the body to a state of physical balance and equilibrium. Yoga has dozens of physical and emotional benefits, but perhaps its key benefit is the ability to reduce inflammation via increased circulation and lymphatic flow. Increasing circulation helps eliminate toxins, which results in decreased levels of inflammation and a decreased risk for chronic disease development.

Yoga is also an internal therapeutic practice that has the ability to improve focus and attention, galvanize self-awareness and intuition, and restore inner peace. From a physical perspective, yoga is also exceptionally beneficial in terms of improving posture and flexibility, decreasing joint pain, jump-starting metabolism, promoting weight loss, boosting immunity, increasing energy and improving cardiovascular health. Yoga is also known to decrease levels of stress hormones in the body, boost the nervous system and improve toxin elimination via increased lymphatic drainage.

Yoga Styles We Practice

Hatha yoga is one of the more common forms of yoga in the U.S. It involves an extensive array of physical components along with coordinated breathing techniques, meditation and even dietary cleansing.

Popularized recently as a form of exercise yoga, ashtanga yoga is often regarded as one of the purest forms of the traditional Indian yoga. The ashtanga style is characterized by flowing movements and coordinated, synchronized breathing techniques.
Founded by Bikram Choudhury in the early 2000s, Bikram yoga is a modern form of yoga often referred to as “hot yoga,” wherein practitioners perform synchronized postures in a room reaching temperatures well over 100-degrees Fahrenheit.
As a form of yoga that emphasizes posture (asana), Iyengar yoga often uses physical structures and props in order to amplify the physical challenges and intensity of reaching and maintaining specific poses.
The defining characteristic of restorative yoga is in holding asanas for extended periods of time – often as long as possible. The idea is that the practitioner will reach ultimate relaxation of the body in all states: physical, mental and emotional. When coupled with meditation, this form of yoga works incredibly well for stress, anxiety and depression.

Incorporating elements of traditional Chinese medicine, yin yoga is a pain relief yoga that involves holding asanas for several minutes in order to elongate connective tissue and amplify blood flow to the joints and muscles.
