Benefits of Yoga
Yoga makes you feel better, practicing the postures, breathing exercises and meditation makes you feel healther in body, mind and spirit. Yoga lets you tune in, chill out, shape up - all at the same time.
Yoga is good for what ails you. Specifically, research shows that yoga helps manage or control anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, blood pressure, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, headaches, stress and many other conditions and diseases. What's more, yoga:
Improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina
Rescues stress and tension
Improves concentration and creativity
Stimulates the immune system
Creates sense of well being and calm.
Through yoga we learn to develop a greater awareness of our physical and psychological states. As a result, we're in a position to better manage our reactions to the thoughts, feelings and responses we have to the various situations in our everyday lives.
Yoga began in India and has existed for at least 5,000 years.
Yoga means yoke or union, the union of your mind, body and spirit.
Yoga practice incorporates non-competitive exercises called asanas (poses) pranayama (breathing techniques to deepen and control the breath) and meditation.
It can aid the recuperation, relaxation and regeneration of both your body and mind. It can also help you to sleep better.
If you already partake of regular physical activity/sports, yoga will improve your performance, aid your concentration and lessen the chance of injury. Professional sports people are all starting to include yoga in their regular fitness routines, some well publicised include football, rugby, tennis and athletics.
