Scientific research is just beginning to empirically prove what people who practice somatic disciplines have known for years. In this thesis, I theorize that it is possible to combine yoga and somatics with modern research into the mind and body in a manner that could facilitate healing in a holistic, beneficial manner. There is an indisputable relationship between a person's overall physical and mental health. The practice of yoga strives to facilitate both physical and mental health, in addition to inner peace and well-being. By identifying similarities between the teachings of yoga and modern kinesthetic research, it is possible to gain a better understanding of why and how yoga makes practitioners feel better.
