How Yoga Helps Control Stuttering

Everybody knows the various health benefits of yoga. This healing
system, which originated in India, is well known for its principle
of ensuring the harmony of the mind and the body. This leads to
yoga being an effective cure for a wide variety of ailments and
health problems. However, not many people know that yoga is
beneficial as well for seemingly minor bodily conditions such as
stuttering and other speech disorders.

At some points in their lives, children and adults experience
speech difficulties such as getting stuck on their words. While it
seems it is just normal to stutter, this could pose a problem in a
person’s day-to-day interaction with other people. If you stumble
every time you speak, it would be very hard for you to get your
message across. Worse, it can affect your self-esteem and
performance in various social situations.

According to Yoga principles, stress has a lot to do with      most
speech problems. People start to stutter when they become      overly
stressed. Anxiety is another factor that causes people to      stutter.
When you are very nervous before you start speaking, your      vocal
cords become tensed. And when you begin to talk, you will
naturally stutter.

Yoga experts believe that the only way to stop people from
stuttering is through relaxation. This is where yoga and
meditation come into play. Yoga trains people how to relax so that
they can speak with much ease. Simple yoga postures and Pranayama,
in particular, aid in managing stress and the stammering. When
paired with speech therapy (under the supervision of a trained
speech therapist), yoga and meditation can effectively reduce the
frequency of stammering in people and improve their speech
abilities.

People tend to stutter if they breathe incorrectly before and
while speaking. The proper way to do it is to breathe in deeply
before you start to say something and then breathe out while you
are talking. Yoga can help you address breathing problems through
Pranayama, which is a system that corrects breathing patterns.
Pranayama uses the optimum capacity of your lungs so that you can
cope with breathing and speech difficulties.

Are you interested in practicing yoga to control your tendency to
stutter? The first things you must focus on are recognizing and
accepting your speech problem. Then think about all your talents
and positive attributes. In doing so, you will have a better
perception of yourself. You will be less self-conscious as a
result. This positive thinking will greatly help you deal with
stress that causes your stammering.

The next step is to practice the following Yoga postures and
breathing techniques to make you feel more relaxed:

• Surya Namaskar (sun salutation)

• Progressive relaxation techniques and meditation

Without a doubt, yoga is an effective way to heal stuttering. It
is advised that you practice yoga with the help of a trained yoga
therapist to train you about proper relaxation and breathing
techniques.
