How your body language shapes who you are

Just as one’s mental state impacts the body postures, it is now being clearly pointed that even body postures can impact the body chemistry itself. But isn’t that what Yoga says but in a more detailed and sophisticated manner? It not just looks at the posture but also how breathing is done and how every finger is moved and held (mudra). Because postures and body is far more sophisticated than just standing upright!

Actually, yoga functions at the level of Energy Body and not Physical body so the scope there is completely different. But this nevertheless is a very interesting video!

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.
