1. The practice of yoga cultivates a resilient mind
When you do yoga you need to take deep breaths and twist your body in ways that might not be very comfortable. This is not easy to do but almost all the people who attend yoga classes are focused and do their best. This teaches us to be resilient in other aspects of life as well.
2. It helps develop a fitter body
This is a sure way of making yourself stronger, balanced, stable and flexible. When yoga becomes a part of your life you will become physically fit. It also increases the production of endorphins in your body so it will leave you feeling happier.
3. Alleviates stress
Anyone whose done yoga will be well aware of that tranquil, peaceful state you descend into whenever you are done. This is because of the Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which sends a message to your brain telling it to be calmer and relaxed.
4. It is fun
While this is a great way to stretch your entire body, it is also very entertaining to try and twist your body in a variety of strange ways. Your flexibility will improve and you will find it easy to balance yourself and your whole body will feel like it has become light.
5. Keeps you young and healthy
Usually people who are still young don’t face issues with their joints and ligaments. But as time passes issues like arthritis and aching joints begin to set in. Yoga is a unique work out that makes your entire body more flexible and this includes all the parts that pose problems as you grow older.
So if you’re someone who is dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety, yoga is a great way to calm yourself down and make yourself stronger so that you can better handle the obstacles that are in your way.
