Yoga for Mental Health

At Grounding Spot, we focus on yoga techniques that focus on mental fitness with physical fitness benefits. These techniques incorporate meditation. Meditation or “dhyana” when coupled with yoga can help strengthen mental fitness.


Like the physical practice of yoga, dhyana also forms a profound connection with the universe by doing mental exercises to bring you to a higher state of consciousness. This connection happens in savasana when you are in a meditative, peaceful state (Mohammad, 2019).

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is a traditional and widely practiced form of yoga that focuses on physical postures (asanas) and breath control (pranayama) to promote physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. It emphasizes the balance of strength and flexibility, making it accessible to people of various fitness levels.
