Health Benefits of Yoga

Sponsored Content

By Laura Studley


Amidst the chaos and stress of daily life, peace and quiet is hard to come by. Yoga provides a break from the business. It supplies both mental and physical benefits to help you feel your best.

Yoga helps develop an inner awareness; focusing attention on the body’s abilities at the present moment. Inner awareness assists in the strength of mind and body. Mindfulness has also been shown to improve through yoga. This quality focuses attention on the experience of the present moment without judgment.

Yoga helps individuals become more in-tune with their bodies, including being more mindful eaters. Because mindfulness increases, people who participate in yoga tend to practice moderation and engage in healthier habits as a result. This aids in promoting weight loss. People who practice yoga may be more sensitive to hunger cues and feelings of fullness.

Aside from mental health, physical benefits can be seen through participating in yoga regularly. Cardiovascular risks are reduced significantly. Yoga aids in lowering blood pressure in people who have hypertension, as well as restoring baroreceptor sensitivity, allowing for the body to sense imbalances in blood pressure and maintain that balance, and lower excessive blood sugar levels in people with non-insulin dependent diabetes.

Increased flexibility, muscle strength, and tone are also known to come from consistent yoga practice. These benefits among others like the improvement of respiration, energy and vitality, development of a more balanced metabolism, increased athletic performance and protection from injury are included in the many benefits.

Incorporating yoga into a daily routine will also help early preventative action for future health. In the buzz of life, taking a break is a necessity. It not only provides a good stress reliever, but can also be a step toward a healthier lifestyle.
