A more detailed look at why yoga is good for you
These are just some of the benefits the list is endless. Yoga is a fun activity that can produce powerful results. Yoga will wake up your body, and sharpen your mind. You will open up new areas of understandings about yourself. It is extremely beneficial for people of any age.
With continued practice you can see results very quickly because as you let go tensions, you liberate vast resources of energy. Yoga increases circulation and flexibility. Movement can become a pleasure as your joints begin to function with greater ease and your muscles start to work more smoothly and efficiently. By practicing yoga breathing, your lungs get stronger. Yoga is great for migraine sufferers, chronic lower back pain and is a good physical therapy after an injury or illness.
Your spine is home to the central and autonomic nervous systems and thus your entire body benefits as your spine becomes more flexible. When your spine is healthy and limber, the vertebrae and nerves function properly.
During a yoga session you will stretch your spine in all six possible directions, forward, backwards, bending to each side and twisting to each side and these create a balance in your spinal column. A limber spine goes hand in hand with a youthful body.
Yoga is a great stress buster. We have all heard the phrase “healthy body, healthy mind” and in yoga we embrace this philosophy. Because yoga unites body and mind, it teaches you control over your mental state as it teaches you control over your body. Simply focusing on your breath induces a state of calmness in the body. When your mind and body are one, the sense of peace and tranquility achieved makes everything seem clear and simple.
If you begin a steady practice, yoga will transform the way you look, feel, move, breathe and interact with your friends & family.
