During yoga, your brain releases all sorts of chemicals that help you to lower your stress and anxiety levels including, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. Each of which functions in its own way to help you calm down and feel better. Yoga also helps reduce stress by lowering your body’s cortisol and adrenaline levels, two critical stress hormones. The combination of poses, breathing, and meditation performed during yoga not only causes certain areas of your brain to increase or decrease in size but also affects your cognition as well as how you process your emotions, stress, and anxiety. All of which help you live a happier, healthier life.
