yoga benefits

Who hasn’t heard of yoga, right? It’s a popular mind-body discipline which originated in India. It is part of several schools of Hindu philosophical traditions. There are many yoga schools and practices in several religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Yoga is great not only for calming the mind and making us flexible. Studies have found that yoga outperformed aerobic exercises at most criteria tested including flexibility, balance, strength, relieving menopausal symptoms, among other things.

Regular practice can influence weight loss, not in the “traditional” sense of burning calories and losing weight because yoga burns fewer calories than some other forms of exercise (e.g. jogging); but yoga can increase our mindfulness and the way that we treat our bodies. It’s a full mind-body workout that involves deep breathing, meditation, and relaxation.

There’s actual research that proves that yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia because its soothing practices and positions can calm both mind and the body and reduces stress—a leading cause of blood pressure problems.
