Some likely benefits are release of emotional blocks from the muscles and organs of the body. Helps to heal relationship wounds. It is a good tool for nurturing and nourishing the emotional personality.

4.      Yoga Nidra

This is one of the best Relaxation exercise in the Science of Yoga. Practiced lying down in a calm comfortable posture. It helps in deepening meditation. It also helps quite a lot in reducing high BP, insomnia, and other forms of stress disorders. Since one aspect of the exercise involves accessing memory many childhood traumas, abuses, wrong upbringing and the pain of relationship wounds come up to the surface. Suppressed emotions of anger, guilt and shame also come up to the surface. These are then handled with present mature understanding and through forgetting and forgiving are released from the system. 

5.      Handling Human Relationship difficulties and Inner struggle through Spiritual methods.
