The Benefits of Yoga

Yoga holistically heals the body and mind and therefore has many health benefits.  Yoga has been proven to help prevent many degenerative diseases.  Regular practice helps improve muscle tone, balance, coordination, strength and confidence.

Improves Flexibility

You may not reach your toes after your first Yoga class, however, with continued practice, even the most difficult poses can become achievable.

Helps Alignment and Posture

Poor posture can cause back, neck and other muscle and joint problems.  Yoga helps you become aware of your posture and the correct alignment of your body not just on the mat but throughout the day.

Increases your Blood Flow & Heart Rate & Lowers Blood Pressure

Yoga helps your circulation and increases the volume of oxygenated cells which helps your body to function to its optimum. Due to Yoga being restorative and relaxing as well as an exercise, it helps to lower your blood pressure.

Helps you Focus

Studies have found that regular practice of yoga improves coordination, reaction time, balance, memory and even IQ scores.

Improves your Immune System

Meditation has a beneficial effect on our immune system. Pranayama helps cleanse the body of toxins and keeps allergies and viruses at bay.
