The practice of yoga has several benefits at physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. On a physical level, it can build muscle strength, improve balance and flexibility, and help with weight loss. It can improve joint health and help with back pain. Yoga also improves posture and alignment, which can help prevent many other types of pain.
The physical practice of yoga is often times strenuous as it tones the body and increases weight loss. Although many practice yoga because it relieves stress and clears the mind, the added benefit of maintaining a yoga practice is a healthy body. If weight loss is going to improve an individual’s quality of life, then incorporating challenging yoga postures is beneficial for that particular goal.
YOGA for Health : One of the benefits of yoga is creating a balance within oneself. There are yoga poses that benefit many things that trouble individuals and one area with which yoga can be particularly helpful is anxiety.
