What are yoga and meditation?

Yoga and meditation are two stress-reducing strategies that many people use concurrently to relieve physical pain or psychological distress. Rein Center provides guided yoga and meditation services alone or as part of holistic and integrative care plans to improve your health and wellness. While they’re beneficial together, yoga and meditation are two different strategies.


Yoga is a form of gentle stretching and exercise that involves physical poses and postures, breathing techniques, and relaxation. 


Meditation, which you can apply during yoga, increases your awareness of your body and your mind. It’s a spiritual practice that helps you be more calm, present, and mindful. 

What are some common techniques in yoga and meditation?

Rein Center offers a series of yoga classes and meditation techniques to transform your sense of well-being. You’ll get the most out of yoga and meditation by engaging in them every week. Three meditation techniques you can expect from Rein Center are:

Body scan meditation

Body scan meditation works well for anxiety, chronic pain, and stress. It increases your mind-body awareness over the course of eight weeks. 

Self-hypnosis for insomnia

Self-hypnosis for insomnia is a meditation practice that helps you fall asleep faster. This is an excellent option for you if you tend to have a racing mind at night that either keeps you awake or awakens you from deep sleep.

Belly breathing

Belly breathing is a meditation practice that calms you down during a panic attack. It helps you ground yourself in the face of major anxiety and panic. 

What are the wellness benefits of yoga and meditation?

Yoga and meditation have many benefits individually, but even more when you use them together. Rein Center helps you find yoga and meditation techniques that align with your health and wellness goals, which may include:

  • Reducing depression
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Stress relief
  • Spiritual growth
  • Body strengthening
  • Chronic pain relief
  • Better sleep
  • Sharper concentration

Alongside yoga and meditation, Rein Center may recommend other holistic treatments and services to assist with reaching your goals. Other services available at Rein Center include massage therapy, acupuncture, and psychological counseling.
