Benefits of Yoga
Jan 25, 2011
Today we want to talk to you about a very important part of Yoga - Asanas (Yoga postures), and some of the benefits they bring us. Actually, the practice of Yoga has a holistic effect on our body, since doing a specific posture not only works a specific part of the body but improves your whole being. In any case, here we tell you some of the benefits that you will obtain thanks to the practice of Yoga: Yoga benefit #1: Improve your flexibility This is one of the benefits that you will be able to see more clearly, since over time you will be able to perform exercises that seemed impossible at first. The postures that you perform in Yoga sessions increase the flexibility of your body in a very remarkable way and allow you to loosen muscles and tendons that are a source of very common pain: lower back pain, knee discomfort, cervical pain... Yoga Benefit #2: You'll Breathe Better This point is much more important than it may seem. With Yoga you will learn to match your breathing with your movements, which will allow you to tire much less in your daily life. The muscles of the body move thanks to the oxygen that reaches them through the red blood cells, which is why it is so important to breathe effectively. After a few sessions you will notice how you take fewer breaths and with a higher volume of oxygen sucked in, which also improves blood circulation and strengthens the heart. Yoga Benefit #3: Relax After each session you will notice a feeling of relaxation and inner peace that will make you feel much calmer and less stressed in your daily life. Through the practice of Yoga, negative thoughts that cause stress (fear, frustration, lamentation,...) are reduced, and you will be happier in your day to day life. Yoga Benefit #4: Inner Cleansing Yoga is possibly the only physical exercise that allows you to stimulate and work the internal organs of your body, which can prevent you from many diseases and infections that start inside you. It also improves your immune system, which will make you stronger against harmful elements that attack your body. Yoga benefit #5: Improves your self-esteem A healthy and fit body always has a positive effect on the mind. If you see that your body works, that you get less tired... in short, that you look younger and stronger, you will surely feel much better. We hope we have been able to expand your knowledge about Yoga and the benefits that its practice brings. And you already know that if you dare, you can always come to practice yoga us.
