Yoga’s Main Benefits on the Body and Mind

Yoga is a practice, the roots of which have survived the test of time because it offers results as far as a wholistic lifestyle is concerned. It fosters tranquillity, peace of mind and overall bodily health and wellbeing. With this in mind, there is no surprise that it is an ever-increasingly popular practice with numerous variations. It is also becoming more and more accessible through globalisation, online yoga courses and the ease at which information is available these days. So, let’s explore some of the benefits to the mind, body and soul, that yoga can have for an individual. For interesting Yoga news and discussions check out Yoga-Age.com .

How Yoga can help your mind and body

Increased blood and oxygen circulation

Yoga stimulates blood circulation throughout the entire body, and many of the poses target particular areas that other forms of exercise do not. This results in healthier internal organs and muscles, can combat muscle fatigue, and most importantly, increases the flow of oxygen throughout the entire body; which stimulates wholistic wellbeing.

Better flexibility and core strength

Almost all yoga poses engage your core muscle group (those around the hips, abdominals and lower back) which are responsible for much of your body’s stability and balance. As these muscles get stronger, you may find that other forms of exercise become more effective and easy to perform.

Another benefit of yoga is that it encourages better flexibility, which is partly due to increased blood and oxygen circulation, and partly because of the nature of the poses.

Improved focus

Yoga is not only beneficial to the body, as most practitioners will tell you, it is also brilliant for the state of the mind. Because of the concentration required during poses, the practice of yoga helps discipline the mind of the practitioner. Aside from that, increased oxygen circulation, and the release of endorphins during routines, can have an astounding effect on a person’s mental wellbeing. The results of this are improved concentration, better mental clarity and a better sense of focus.

Managing stress and moods effectively

The mental benefits of yoga go much deeper than just concentration and awareness. It is also known to encourage tranquility and peace of mind. It does this through a number of ways.

Firstly, through increased concentration and a focus on meditative states, one becomes better at managing stress. This results in better mental and physical health. Secondly, by increasing oxygen to the brain and stimulating the release of endorphins, one can effectively manage their moods better. Especially for those who suffer from depression or anxiety disorders.
