Benefits of Yoga
There are many benefits to yoga. Yoga Journal has an article about 38 benefits, but these are the top 5 reasons I do yoga.

  1. Improves your flexibility
    Improved is probably the most obvious benefit of yoga. In the beginning, you probably won’t be able to touch your toes and some poses will look impossible. Over time, your muscles will gradually loosen, and impossible poses will become possible.
  2. Builds muscle strength
    At first glance, yoga may not look like a strength-building exercise routine, but you’d be wrong. Yoga helps strengthen nearly every muscle in your body. The stronger you become, the more you can do in your yoga practice and in life.
  3. Increases blood flow
    One of my favourite things about yoga, especially in the morning is the way it gets my blood flowing. Relaxation poses help blood flow to the hands and feet. Inverted poses help blood flow back toward your heart. According to Yoga Journal,

“Yoga also boosts levels of hemoglobin and red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues. And it thins the blood by making platelets less sticky and by cutting the level of clot-promoting proteins in the blood. This can lead to a decrease in heart attacks and strokes since blood clots are often the cause of these killers.”

  1. Brightens your mood
    Some studies have shown that yoga improves depression by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. Meditation in yoga has been correlated to greater levels of happiness, especially in long term practitioners.
  2. Helps with focus
    Another thing I love about yoga is focusing on being in the present. Some studies have shown that yoga helps memory, improves coordination and has even boosted IQ test scores. Following a yoga flow while using my breath really helps me stay focused.
