BENEFITS OF YOGA

SOME OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF YOGA:

    1. STRESS RELIEF: Yoga reduces the physical effects of stress on the body. It encourages relaxation. Related benefits include lowering blood pressure and heart rate, improving digestion and boosting the immune system. Yoga also eases symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia.

    2. PAIN RELIEF: Yoga can ease pain. Studies have shown that practicing yoga postures can reduce pain for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune diseases, hypertension, arthritis, back and neck pain and other chronic conditions.

    3. BETTER BREATHING: Yoga teaches people to take slower, deeper breaths. This helps to improve lung function, trigger the body’s relaxation response and increase the amount of oxygen available to the body.

    4. INCREASED STRENGTH: Yoga postures use every muscle in the body, helping to increase strength literally from head to toe.

    5. GREATER FLEXIBILITY: Yoga helps to improve flexibility and range of motion. Yoga can reduce aches and pains. Over time, yoga can lengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments.

    6. BETTER POSTURE: Yoga helps to improve body alignment resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscles problems.

    7. WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: Yoga (even less vigorous styles) can aid weight control efforts by reducing cortisol levels as well as burning excess calories and reducing stress. Yoga also encourages healthy eating habits and provides a sense of well being and self- esteem. Yoga helps you to feel more at ease in your body.

    8. IMPROVED CIRCULATION: Yoga helps to improve circulation as a result of various poses and deep breathing. Oxygenated blood moves to the body’s cells more efficiently.

    9. BETTER ENDURANCE: Even gentle yoga provides cardio-vascular benefits by lowering the resting heart rate, increasing oxygen uptake and improving endurance.

    10. IMPROVED MENTAL ATTITUDE: Yoga helps us to focus on the present, to become more aware and to create mind body health.
