7 Health Benefits of Yoga

7 Health Benefits of Yoga

We always wonder why yoga is more beneficial as doing regular cardio exercises and surprisingly there are at least seven benefits of yoga that I know. I know that yoga increases flexibility and reduces stress, but the practice can do more than help you twist and bend your body into impossible shapes and of course find inner peace. These surprising health benefits will help you in the long run and you’ll be thankful doing yoga on a daily routine.

Of course! I will give you seven reasons why I encourage people to stretch and basic yoga exercises.

1. Boost your immune system
Practicing yoga regularly can help boost immunity and fight infection.

2. Improves your flexibility
TIP: Standing and seating positions that improve your posture while strengthening your legs and increasing flexibility in legs and hips. They add to the mobility of your neck and shoulders and they increase the flexibility in your pelvis and lower back. They also encourage deeper breathing, which contributes to you feeling calm and peaceful.

3. Builds muscle strength

4. Makes you happier
Did you Know?: When you do exercise your body releases endorphins. These are hormones secreted in the brain that elevate your mood. Regular exercise increases your overall energy and helps decrease mild depression.

5. Improve your relationships
A mind that is happy is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters. Yoga and meditation work on keeping the mind peaceful; benefit from the strengthened special bond you share with people close to you.
6. Protection from injury

7. Gives you peace of positive and peace mind
Think we all humans love to visit peaceful, paradise spot, calm in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right inside us! Yoga is also one of the best ways to prevent overthinking.
