Reasons To Start Yoga

Am sure you have heard this before how yoga can help you relax and take your mind off things, its actually true! Not many people give it a second thought though, maybe because it has to do meditations and staying still. The world is so fast-paced and noisy that we get caught up in all its activities at the expense of our health, most times. One sure way to stay healthy and get away from everything is yoga. Yes, yoga!

Yoga is a mind and body practice in a history in Indian philosophy. It combines breathing techniques, meditation, physical postures, relaxation, and is good for you. Still looking for reasons to start yoga, I could help you with some;

1. It improves your sleep.

Yoga provides relief from the hustle and bustle of everyday modern life. Finding it difficult to sleep? Try yoga. You could try the Savasana (corpse poise)or the pranayama.

2. It eases your pain.

For neck and lower back pain, muscle and joint aches, try yoga. When you do yoga, you find out where you hold tension-either in your neck, muscles of the face or quadriceps and learn to relax. With the big muscles like the quadriceps or buttocks, it may take some time though.

3. Cardio and circulatory health.

Yoga gets your blood flowing. It helps get oxygen to your cells. It also lowers your resting heart rate which is a good thing and increases your endurance.

4. It improves your posture.

Poor posture causes pain. As you slump, your body compensates by flattening the normal inward curve of your neck and lower back. Yoga helps you have the perfect erect posture! The benefits are numerous. Am sure you’d want mental clarity and calmness, improved flexibility or a balanced metabolism. Yoga encourages self care and gives you peace of mind. One thing am sure of, is that yoga dies wonders to the body and soul. Give it a try and share your experiences with me.
