Everything goes with yoga—or at least, that’s what it seems. There’s hot yoga, power yoga, laughter yoga, and of course the hybrid-types like yogalates and doga. So when I got an email about trying a session of Hyp-Yoga, a new wellness program founded by Carly Cummings which blends—you got it—hypnosis and yoga, I couldn’t resist. Sound like an unlikely pairing? A little. But it’s not as odd as it initially seems.
Research shows that there are there are plenty of health benefits of yoga and hypnosis. While yoga can help improve your flexibility, lower blood pressure and fight stress, hypnosis has been used to help people lose weight, quit smoking and control pain.
Did that mean that in a Hyp-Yoga session I could get two for the price of one?
