5 reasons why you should start doing Yoga
Changing your posture and the way you breathe. Changing your breathing and you will change your nervous system. This is one of the greatest lessons of Yoga: Everything is connected—your hip bone to your ankle bone, you to your community, your community to the world.
What health benefits can you expect from Yoga?
Healthy Joints: Yoga helps the synovial fluid circulate in your joints – this fluid lies in a capsule that surrounds synovial joints. This system (capsule and fluid components) helps to cushion the ends of the bones, allowing them to glide over each other, lessening the friction.
Stimulation Of Organs: Internal organs take part and are stimulated with yoga. The functioning improves and increases resistance to diseases. Also, once you are attuned to your body, after years of practice, you will be able to tell instantly if your body doesn’t function properly.
Increased strength and endurance: Yoga uses the weight of your own body to build overall strength. Core strength is especially important for good posture and balance.
Look younger and delay ageing: Everyone has to age, but it is important you age gracefully, and not before time. Yoga helps you detox, thereby eliminating toxins and free radicals. This, apart from other benefits, helps delay aging too. Yoga also relieves stress, which is another important factor to beat aging.
Mind-Body Connection: Regular practice reinforces the mind body connection. Many yoga practitioners are so in tune with their body that they are aware at first sign if something isn’t functioning properly. This allows for quicker response to head off disease and other ailments.
The benefits of yoga provide both instant gratification and lasting transformation. In the fitness world, both are extremely important. Too much time with too few results can be incredibly discouraging, and monotonous routines week after week can lead to stagnation. Yoga can change your physical and mental capacity quickly, while preparing the mind and body for long-term health.
