10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO TRY YOGA NOW
The immediate objectives of yoga are twofold: for meditation and exercise. It has many schools, disciplines, and practices. However, what’s important is knowing what you’re getting into and the advantages it brings. Yoga has way too many health benefits actually. Nevertheless, we’ve picked the top reasons why you should grab that yoga mat and start doing it.
IT CLEARS YOUR MIND AND HELPS YOU TO FOCUS
Since yoga is meditation, you get into a zone where your mind is just still and free from all tension. You are then able to rid it of unnecessary clutter and ultimately achieve focus.
IT INCREASES YOUR FLEXIBILITY AND BALANCE
Initially, you will find it difficult to stretch your limbs or reach for your toes, for example. But you’ll soon get the hang of it. In the succeeding times, you’ll be able to go much farther than before. What used to be clumsy attempts to flex muscles becomes graceful stretches and balance. This brings us to the next benefit.
IT EASES PAIN
All that stretching and balancing gradually loosens up the muscles that are sore and stiff. As a result, any ache and pain that you might be experiencing will be significantly relieved.
IT IMPROVES YOUR POSTURE AND OVERALL BONE HEALTH
You don’t have to be a ballerina or a gymnast to achieve that perfect posture. In time, yoga will correct your posture and more importantly, promote bone density. Your spine is also one vital body part that would be well protected to keep those disks robust and resilient.
YOGA STRENGTHENS THE MUSCLES
You build not just your bones but your muscles as well. This goes hand-in-hand with your added flexibility and improved skeletal framework. You might think that doing weights may be more fun and visibly active in muscle build-up. However, weight-lifting merely does that, and nothing more, especially for your flexibility.
YOGA FACILITATES BLOOD FLOW
Blood circulation is greatly enhanced whenever you do yoga, particularly in your extremities. Oxygen is better distributed within your body. The inverted positionssend oxygenated blood flowing through the lungs and into other organs.
IT ALLOWS YOU TO BREATHE PROPERLY
Yoga exercises strengthen the breathing capacity of the lungs. Respiratory problems are treated or prevented whenever you take significant volumes of fewer breaths. Since we breathe mostly through the nostrils, yoga allows us to filter air correctly.
IT BOOSTS IMMUNITY
Studies show that yoga meditation promotes body resistance in two ways. Firstly, it lower body metabolism to mitigate an adverse immune dysfunction. Secondly, it increases body metabolism it to bring up antibody levels to respond to vaccines.
IT HELPS YOU SLEEP BETTER
Yoga relaxes the nervous system just enough to provide the body with the needed rest and counter the ill-effects of tiredness and stress. Less stress means a deeper slumber.
IT MAKES YOU HAPPIER
Studies show that regularly doing yoga counters depression. It also boosts serotonin levels in the blood. Serotonin is responsible for transmitting nerve impulses and regulating physiological processes that contribute to well-being and mood balance.
