Yoga helps one to bring about greater bodily awareness, by listening to one's own body, and practising each posture with mindfulness.
What is Mindfulness?
"Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience." - Psychology Today
