Health Benefits of Yoga

Yjackie4oga is a Hindu spiritual discipline which includes breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures. “Yoga” means united, because you are uniting your mind, body, and breathe. Yoga is practiced to improve overall fitness and to reduce stress.

Yoga improves your overall health by relieving tension in the muscles. Your back, neck, and shoulders tend to carry the most tension throughout the day. Through yoga, you will notice improvements in your muscle flexibility. Maybe you couldn’t touch your toes in the beginning; but if you stick with yoga, you will notice a gradual loosening of the muscles.

Yoga also helps perfect your posture. Poor posture can lead to back, neck, and joint problems later in life. As you slump, your body may recompense by flattening the normal inward curves in your neck and lower back which cause pain and degenerative arthritis of the spine.

With its series of postures and controlled-breathing exercises, yoga is a popular stress reliever. The left prefrontal cortex shows a heightened activity in meditators, which correlates with greater levels of happiness. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peacefulness of body, helping you relax and manage your stress and anxiety.
