Take your time and breathe, and you could be on your way to much better health.

That is the mantra taught by Niven Parmar, a mentor who teaches Yogic Healing.

Yogic Healing teaches breathing technique, Pranayama, and Mindfulness meditation, which is a very important part of yoga, leading to possible benefits that include the relief of anxiety and depression and the acceleration of intellectual and personal development.

Mentor, Niven Parmar said: “This can allow a more healthy state to be experienced and allows the mind to become calmer. As the student follows the proper rhythmic patterns of slow deep breathing, the patterns can strengthen the digestive system, respiratory system, soothe the nervous system and reduce stress and anxiety.”

He added that Yogic, asans, breathing exercise (Pranayama) and mindfulness meditation performed regularly should help people improve general health and wellbeing together with changes in their outlook and lifestyle.

Mindful awareness is about learning to pay attention, in the present moment, and without judgement. It’s like training a muscle - training attention to be where you want it to be.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy is recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression. But, more importantly, it also works for the rest of us who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.

Niven holds his Yogic Healing Support Group at The Peartree centre, 1 Chadds Lane, Peartree Bridge Milton Keynes MK6 3EB and mentors people of all ages.
