If you Google “Health Benefits of Yoga” you will get dozens of hits with benefits that range from the physical to the mental and even the spiritual. Only you can discover the true benefits of yoga for your body and your life by getting on the mat and trying this practice.
There are dozens of studies that show the amazing health benefits realized by a regular yoga practice.
An article for the American Association of Osteopathy notes that the physical benefits of yoga include:
•Increased muscle strength and tone
•Improved respiration, energy and vitality
•The maintenance of a balanced metabolism
•Cardiovascular and circulatory health
•Improved athletic performance
•Protection from injury
In addition, the relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome, lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.
Aside from the array of physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which has been known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. Yoga is a moving meditation that connects physical postures and breath, which reduces tension in the body and mind. Every yoga class ends with Savasana, a relaxing meditation which allows you to lie quietly, clear your mind and release stress. Yoga can also be very effective in reaching a more positive outlook on life. Yoga is based on the practice of the 8 limb path which includes ethical behaviors to ourselves and others. When we practice being kinder, more truthful, or more contentment, this transfers out into the world we live in, like a ripple in the ocean.
Only you can find and determine the benefits of yoga for your body, mind and life. We welcome you to experience this life changing practice.
