The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome. Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia. Along with physical benifits including:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • Weight reduction
  • Cardio and circulatory health
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Protection from injury
 Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. Regular yoga practice can create:
  • mental clarity and calmness
  • increases body awareness
  • relieves chronic stress patterns
  • relaxes the mind
  • centers attention
  • sharpens concentration

 

Now, you won’t become a master yogi in just a month, but you can make some modest improvements in your strength, flexibility, and balance. You may be able to touch your toes to your ears in the end. Maybe you will gain peace of mind.  However it turns out, you’ll probably learn something about yourself.

Namaste.
