Benefits to Yoga:
Health – Yoga cleans up and reconditions the pathways of physical and mental circulation and communication, bringing about positive health, hygiene, and an overall sensation of well-being. This combination builds a strong constitution that helps to provide resistance and boosts immunity to disease.
Mental – Yoga is an effective and efficient way to achieve physiological change, but through this process many psychological changes occur too. When you employ breath-control and concentration in conjunction with asana (poses), it slows the mind and induces relaxation. Overall, yoga brings a decreased resistance in the flow of energy and thoughts, leaving you free to think, see and experience from a new perspective. The transformation of your life through yoga is a direct result of this increased awareness of who you are and what you reflect out to the world around which in turn affects what you receive back.
Physical – he physical practice of asana works on the body using contraction, stretching, compression, and release of the soft tissues to create openness and evenness. These actions increase tissue circulation just as the opening of a dam sends rushing waters into smaller waterways. Areas of the body once stagnant and starting to deteriorate are flushed out by this action; they then start to receive nourishment and function fully. The increased number of cells in the body boosts the amount of energy produced while decreasing the workload on the organ systems, allowing them to perform at optimum levels, and balancing hormones and metabolism.
