Boxing, martial arts, yoga and some types of dance help individuals to be present in their body and channel their energy through breath and focused movement. Feeling one's inner energy apart from internal scripts stemming from fear or judgment, helps to increase a person's feelings of personal power and allows for the release of stored emotion from the body. As the individual has more opportunities to feel reconnected to self, their awareness of their inner life is heightened. Gains in feelings of self control, personal power and self mastery have the added benefit of increasing feelings of self worth and self esteem. This often translates into shifts in self awareness in a way that then empowers many to improve their communication styles and to make important life changes.
