Yoga not only assists you in maintaining or recovering your physical well-being (see the earlier section "Yoga Helps You Maintain, Recover, or Improve Your Health") but also has a profound influence on your mind. The mind is the source of many of your troubles — sooner or later, the body reflects wrong attitudes, negative thoughts, and emotional imbalance that your mind holds. Yoga is a powerful tool for clearing your mind and freeing you from mood swings. Yogic practice supports greater results than any tranquilizer and without the undesirable side effects of drugs. It balances you without dulling your mind. Through Yoga, you can stay alert but relaxed.
