Benefits of yoga

Decrease stress

Several studies have shown yoga may help reduce stress. Yoga can enhance your mood and overall well-being.

Relieve anxiety

Yoga encourages relaxation in both mind and body. This relaxation helps relieve anxiety and promotes overall peacefulness.

Reduce inflamation

Studies have shown a reduction in inflammation while practicing yoga thanks to better blood flow from increased physical activity.

Improved quality of life

Yoga promotes improved fitness and is often an exercise program anyone can do. Improved fitness can lead to an overall better quality of life. Yoga has been shown to improve symptoms of several chronic conditions.

Depression

An improved overall mindset can help fight depression. Yoga is able to help reduce the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that influences the levels of serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that is often associated with depression.

Chronic pain

Improving flexibility and strength can work to reduce chronic pain. The poses that promote flexibility help relieve tension, which alleviates pain.

Sleep quality

Yoga has been shown to increase your amount of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness.

Flexibility and balance

The poses/postures utilized in yoga are designed to increase strength and flexibility. They range in difficulty with the goal of achieving relaxation and stretching you beyond your physical limits. Poses also can be designed to promote balance.
