Yoga - Benefits

Developed in India thousands of years ago, yoga has become an increasingly popular form of exercise in the UK, with various types or schools of yoga to suite everyone. Whether you are 92, 53 or even 12, yoga can help you with an endless list of benefits to those who incorporate it into their everyday lives. Size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose.

Unlike more traditional forms of exercise, Yoga's mind-body healing practice combines stretching exercises, controlled breathing and relaxation. Regular yoga practice creates flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.

Aside from the array of physical benefits, there are many mental wellbeing benefits too. Mindfulness is developed by increased awareness to the sensations, thoughts and emotions that accompany the practice. Teaching you how to cope better with stress and cultivating a sense of ease in active or passive poses. Clarity, calmness, centring and body awareness are particularly beneficial, because it can help with early detection of ailments and physical problems.

Also Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life. Increasing popularity is proof that many people value an exercise system that engages the mind, body and spirit in equal measure.
