Benefits of Yoga:
- Yoga safely strengthens the body while improving flexibility, endurance, and balance. A regular yoga practice can also help improve joint and bone health, while reforming the body to its optimal muscular and skeletal alignment. This strengthening of the body also helps prevents injuries in everyday life.
- This low-impact exercise also relieves body tension and stress, creating a healthier body and mind. Yoga is a heart-healthy exercise, which studios have shown that yoga can lower bad cholesterol while boosting good cholesterol.
- Yoga’s mind-body benefits also include mind-body centering and an enhanced mood and overall sense of well-being.
- The breath and movement sequencing in a yoga practice helps in detoxifying the body through lymphatic stimulation.
- Although yoga is often thought of as a non-cardiovascular form of exercise, you can easily take your yoga practice to be a more vigorous and cardiovascular level, allowing you to burn excess calories and even lose weight.
