For The Yogis
Serious yogis seek meditative & spiritual development beyond health benefits.
Yoga first came to existence as the restraining of the mind from focusing on external objects to reach a state of pure consciousness; eventually, yoga combined physical elements. There are many approaches to modern yoga, though most still maintain the three core elements: physical postures, breathing exercises, and spiritual contemplation. This mixture of physical and mental activities is believed to have a unique set of health benefits, such as improving our heart and lungs’ functioning, enhancing psychological well-being, and boosting our flexibility and strength.
Yoga is considered one of the most complete all-in-one exercises and is also very inclusive. It can be practiced by most of us regardless of fitness level, strength, age, or weight.
Benefits From Practicing Yoga
Frequent yoga practice helps decrease joint pain and stiffness. It also helps with our coordination and posture. Even though yoga is not considered a high-impact workout method, it can be very intense depending on the level of expertise. Additionally, greater relaxation and lessened tension lead to positive body changes, including improving our sleep habits, circulation, and self-esteem. Some of the most commonly known benefits are:
- Practicing yoga regularly will help us improve our sleep habits and improve our digestion. The stretching and relaxation exercises help us boost our digestion and increase our serotonin levels.
- Yoga helps to strengthen our immune system. It helps reduce our blood pressure, calm our heart rate, and relax the muscles involved in this active process. It also helps to decompress or reduce stress, which also directly impacts our immune system.
- Yoga helps us have a higher level of protection from injuries, the opposite of other fitness activities or sports.
- Yoga helps relieve arthritis and chronic pain symptoms because it involves low-impact movement of the joints, which helps reduce stiffness and pain of the joints.
