Meditation and yoga can be used as a weapon to give up smoking, a US practitioner claims.
Veteran yoga and meditation teacher Dada Vedaprajinananda has launched a new ebook, Start Meditation, Stop Smoking, focusing on how meditation and yoga can break the smoking habit.
Vedaprajinananda, who has practised yoga for 35 years, says her participating students boast a 100% success rate at giving up smoking this way.
“The smoking habit can’t coexist in a mind that has become peaceful and balanced due to the regular practice of yoga and meditation”, she says in a report by www.prweb.com
Recent research gives weight to Vedaprajinananda’s approach. A study by the Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine found stress management techniques such as yoga can play a key role in successfully giving up smoking.
Research has also shown that most committed ex-smokers stick to their resolution after they’ve managed to abstain for at least one year.
