Benefits of Yoga

July 08, 2020 2 min read

Yoga was developed over 5,000 years ago in India as a life philosophy to join the individual self with what practitioners call the Divine, or Universal Spirit. Yoga is not a system of beliefs; it considers the impact on each other of body and mind and brings them mutual harmony. The origin is a Sanskrit word Yog meaning yoga, which is the union of the organ systems in the body with the consciousness in the mind. Most people are familiar with the physical poses of yoga positions but do not know that yoga involves much more.


Yoga includes asanas (postures) that help you become healthier, balanced, and can create the opportunity to enter deep states of medication. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles; it’s a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses. In addition with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. There are more than 100 different forms of yoga. Some are fast-paced and intense, others are calm and relaxing.

Benefits of Yoga:

 

  1. Become more flexible
  2. Burn toxins
  3. Experience peace and calmness
  4. Builds muscle
  5. Perfects your posture
  6. Protects your spine
  7. Increases blood flow
  8. Drops blood pressure
  9. Makes you happier
  10. Helps you sleep better
  11. Betters your bone health
  12. Ups your heart-rate
  13. Lowers fat

Yoga routines can take anywhere from 20 minutes to two or more hours, with one hour being a good time to perform a series of postures and a meditation. It calms the frenzy, clears the clutter, and allows us to get back in touch with ourselves. Whether you take up yoga as a spiritual path or for its physical benefits, yoga is a system for developing a deeper experience of yourself and the world and it makes you feel good.
