The ancient and timeless tradition of Yoga has been passed from teacher to student for over 5,000 years. Yoga is many things to many people. It is fitness, it is health, and it is relaxation.
Here are a few of the benefits of Yoga:
Stretching your body in new ways will help it to become more flexible, bringing greater range of motion to muscles and joints.
Many yoga poses require you to support the weight of your own body in new ways. Some exercises require you to move slowly in and out of poses, which also increases strength.
Muscle tone
s a by-product of getting stronger, you can expect to see increased muscle tone. Yoga helps shape long, lean muscles.
Pain Prevention
Increased flexibility and strength can help prevent the causes of some types of back pain. Yoga helps with alleviating symptoms of may disease processes.
Better Breathing
Most of us breathe very shallowly into the lungs and don't give much thought to how we breathe. Yoga breathing exercises focus the attention on the breath and teach us how to better use our lungs, which benefits the entire body.
Mental Calmness
Yoga practice is intensely physical. Concentrating so intently on what your body is doing has the effect of bringing calm to the mind.
Stress Reduction
Physical activity is good for relieving stress, and this is particularly true of yoga.
Body Awareness
Doing yoga will give you an increased awareness of your own body. You are often called upon to make small, subtle movements to improve your alignment. Over time, this will increase your level of comfort in your own body. This can lead to improved posture and greater self-confidence.
