The science behind yoga
We are born with an operation system called nervous system, which has different moods to experience life. (You can search Polyvagal Theory by Steven Porges for more information)
If we summarize roughly the main priority of the system is staying alive, the natural tendency is to avoid from unpleasant experiences and repeat the pleasant experiences. That happens automatically. Nervous system decides how to react the real life experience according to interpreted experience. Even though this approach doesn't always make things easier, we are habitual beings. We end up living from the automatic pilot, identify the self with unrealistic thoughts or expectations of defense mechanisms.
What does it to do with the LOUD minds?
With loud minds, we refer to people who spend too much time inside the head. When the mind constantly wanders, it's either in the past or future, where it's not possible to experience what's happening in the present. In yogic traditions, this tendency is called monkey mind, according to Buddha it's one causes of human suffering.
The tendency of the mind can be positive, BUT can be also negative or altered for many reasons such as chronic stress, lack of self-awareness, lack of self care for the body-mind-soul, mental health issues, negative influence of the community, lack of quality education, family issues, environmental problems, childhood traumas, relationship issues, being disconnected from nature etc. The list can go long as long as life goes on, as it is part of the life experience...

As long as we are in the automated pilot it's more difficult to see we're living the life with our altered perceptions. We identify the self with thoughts, beliefs that are not matching with our authentic reality even before we notice them. The habitual nature of the mind doesn't always make things easier, actually the opposite. Most of the time the life and relationships become more challenging than they actually are in this state.
BUT the pain doesn't have to become suffering. It is possible to heal and transform from the old wounds and learn to live with more ease, joy and freedom. HOW?
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself, just as I am, then I can change." -Carl R. Rogers
According to physiotherapy & psychology moving with a focus to breath, having an intention and dedication for the practice, applying self-care and showing compassion to self, understanding the mind, practicing non-judgmental attitude and being surrounded with acceptive people has transformative potential and sets our natural healing processes free. That's why yoga has been applied for thousands of years, it's getting more and more popular.
