Yoga promotes inner peace, serenity and well-being and more than 15 million people in the U.S. practice it. Yoga can reduce stress and boost your energy too, so join a yoga class or follow along with DVDs in your home to enjoy the many benefits of yoga.
Health Benefits of Yoga
Boosts Immunity—yoga yields greater health benefits compared to other physical activities. Scientific research confirms that yoga practice boosts your immunity at a cellular level due to the postures, breathing exercises and sweating involved. Yoga improves breathing, blood circulation and functions of organs resulting in improved health.
Weight Loss—regular yoga practice helps with weight loss. Yoga poses like Sun Salutations and Kapal Bhati pranayama are perfect for losing weight. For an inspirational story, watch Arthur’s Transformation to see how yoga helped this man regain his health and lose weight. This is one of my most favorite stories to inspire me to never give up!
Boosts Energy—feeling drained after work? Doing yoga after a stressful day cleanses your body from negative energy you’ve accumulated throughout the day and improves your general tonus.
Yoga is a continuous process—so keep practicing. The more often you move, the better you’ll become.
