TOP FIVE REASONS TO PRACTICE YOGA

Yoga is an ancient practice that has been used for thousands of years to aid mental and physical health. With the combination of physical postures and proper breathing, it helps to improve flexibility, posture, strength and helps to calm the mind.
In short, yoga is a science, a moving meditation that is practiced worldwide to help live a more peaceful, happier life.

  1. Increased flexibility

    One of the most obvious benefits. Regular practice releases facia. (A thick sheet or band of connective tissue surrounding the muscles; which over time, hardens and causes stiffening of the body if not released). So as you practice yoga, you’ll notice how the body feels lighter and more able to move with ease. You’ll also notice that you have fewer aches and pains. For example, tight hips can strain the knee joint due to improper alignment of the thigh and shinbones. Tight hamstrings can lead to a flattening of the lumbar spine, which can cause back pain.

  2. Builds muscle strength

    Yoga is more than just stretching. Challenging poses such as balances, bodyweight exercises, and inversions improve overall over bodily strength. These postures force the body to engage and flex the muscles. Regular practice will improve the strength of the arms, legs, back, and core.  

  3. Improves posture

    Poor posture can cause pain all over the body. Yoga re-trains the body on how to sit and stand correctly. Most poses require the core to be engaged and the shoulders pulled back. So over time, the posture is improved naturally without having to think about it too much. You’ll keep the spine healthy and the discs supple with all the forward bends, backbends, and twists you’ll be doing.

  4. Relaxes the system and calms the mind

    In general, yoga helps us to let go of negative emotions that cause suffering, such as stress, anger, anxiety, fear, and sadness and encourages us to live more in the present moment. You are encouraged to relax and slow your breath, shifting the balance from the sympathetic nervous system (or the fight-or-flight response) to the parasympathetic nervous system. You’ll find that your breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure is decreased, bringing on the relaxation response.

  5. Improves focus and concentration

    Practicing yoga and meditation naturally improves focus and concentration by ridding the mind of distracting thoughts and encouraging you to focus on a single point of focus.
    Speed and accuracy of mental processing and memory are also improved.
