Why Should I Do Yoga?

Why Should I Do Yoga?

The question should be:  why shouldn’t I do yoga? 

The physical and mental benefits of yoga have been well documented in various medical journals, physicians are now prescribing this powerful practice to their patients, and the personal testimonials are nothing short of miraculous. 

Yoga works on four major levels:  physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual.  Hence, if you have issues or imbalances in any of these areas you should start rolling your mat out more often.  I’ve seen a consistent yoga practice completely heal back pain in less than a month.  I have witnessed people with injuries come back stronger than before and for most, yoga changes lives forever.

Yoga is good for….

  • Stress relief
  • Cross-training
  • Preventing injury
  • Realigning bones
  • Improving concentration & balance
  • Strengthening muscle without straining & tightening
  • Creating mobility in the joints
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Improving circulation and digestion
  • Shifting your perspective
  • Cultivating positivism
  • Eradicating fear
  • Developing compassion
  • Increasing physical, mental and emotional stability
  • Agility
  • Learning how to remain calm in all situations
  • Practicing presence of mind
  • Improving interpersonal relations
  • Strengthening the diaphragm and increasing lung capacity
  • Better posture
  • Maintaining homeostasis in the body
  • Intuition and connecting with creative & higher energy
  • Destroying unhealthy habits
  • Keeping you feeling and looking young, strong, and healthy

If you still haven’t tried it, stop procrastinating and making up excuses.  Yoga will turn you into a new and improved version of your amazing self.
