Benefits of Yoga

Woman at a Door

Yoga is said to generate mental and physical well being, and for some, increased longevity. Yoga affects both the conscious as well as the subconscious mind if practiced religiously.

Each yoga pose has a specific benefit. Some yoga postures are practiced to increase the spiritual and mental well-being of the person more than they are the physical well-being.

Tips For Yoga
- Yoga is best practiced in the morning when the mind is at peace and energized.
- Yoga should be done in a quite and well ventilated area that is free from distraction, dust, pests, unpleasant odors, clutter, and moisture.
- Before your yoga session, empty your bowels and drink a glass of lukewarm water.
- Loose cotton clothing should be worn for easy movement.
- If you are a beginner, practice all the movements slowly and steadily.
- The more you practice yoga, the calmer you will be, and your movements will flow smoothly.
- Use a proper mat for sitting and laying down postures.
