Yoga helps to stretch and tone your body muscles. Strong muscles protect us from conditions like arthritis and backpain. Daily Yoga helps improve posture and you will soon feel you walk taller and sit up straighter. Yoga prevents cartilage and joint breakdown as it helps take your joints through a full range of motions. Yoga poses require movement backwards and forwards, with many twists which help to keep the spinal disks supple.
Gentle Yoga positions fuel the metabolic system and help burn fat leading to weight loss. Daily Yoga also strengthens the mind body connection which is important to deal with emotions that are related to issues such as using food to suppress feelings.
If going to the gym and huffing and puffing with weights is not your idea of a fun workout then Yoga can give all that a gym can but in a peaceful, safe and holistic way. Yoga is a combination of cardio and strength training.
Studies have shown that Yoga can help regulate the heart rate variability which means the heart rate is generally lower, giving the body the ability to handle stress more effectively. It has shown that cortisol levels become significantly lower after practicing Yoga which results in lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
Practicing some Yoga positions each day helps to awaken the main energy centres (chakras) in your body and to circulate the blood flow, open the chest and encourage you to take in more breath.
