All around the country, people are now taking up yoga classes, knowing the various benefits associated. Yoga, the art which initially started in this country and spread everywhere is now one of the highly recommended types of exercise. The art of Yoga has become so popular in the west that celebrities swear by this to keep healthy.
So, let’s talk about the six benefits of Yoga. Please take note, there are much more, but here I will let you know about the best 6.
1. Increasing Flexibility
Yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body, including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.
2. Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons
Likewise, the well-researched yoga positions use the different tendons and ligaments of the body. Seemingly unrelated “non-strenuous” Yoga positions act upon different parts of the body in an interrelated manner.
3. Massaging of ALL the organs of the body
Yoga is perhaps the only form of activity which massages all the internal glands and organs thoroughly. It includes those- such as the prostate – that hardly get internally stimulated in our entire lifetime.
4. Complete Detoxification
By gently stretching muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs, yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to different parts of the body. This helps in flushing out of toxins from every nook and cranny as well as providing nourishment up to the last point. This leads to benefits such as delayed ageing, energy and a remarkable zest for life.
5. Excellent toning of the muscles
Muscles that have become flaccid, weak or lazy are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess flab and flaccidity.
6. Yoga keeps disorders at a bay
At the physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have proven to be extremely useful for various diseases.
So keep yourself fit and have a great life. Yoga is not just meditation, it has much to do to ease our lives.
