Why is Yoga good for your health?

Yoga is a spiritual, mental and physical practice that has been around since ages. Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. And, if you’re going through an illness, recovering from surgery or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of your treatment and potentially hasten healing.

Yoga improves strength, balance and flexibility:

Slow movements and deep breathing increase blood flow and warm up muscles while holding a pose can build strength.

Yoga improves your posture:

One of the great things about the strengthening and stretching work of yoga is that it is a balancing practice. Yoga can help to address any muscular imbalances, lengthening tight areas and strengthening weak areas.

Yoga reduces stress:

Many people keep coming back to Yoga because they find it makes them feel so much better. The focus, centring and breathing of yoga all help to reduce stress and can be the ideal antidote to a hectic modern lifestyle. Yoga can leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed, physically, mentally and energetically.

Yoga lowers blood pressure:

Having high blood pressure is a serious medical condition, which is associated with increased risk of both heart attacks and strokes. As well as reducing stress, which can be a contributing factor to high blood pressure, several aspects of yoga practice are thought to directly improve blood pressure.

Yoga helps to boost your immune system functionality:

Asana and pranayama probably improve immune function, but, so far, meditation has the strongest scientific support in this area. It appears to have a beneficial effect on the functioning of the immune system, boosting and lowering it when needed.
