  • Relieves anxiety. There are many researches that show that yoga can help reduce anxiety. However, it is not clear how exactly yoga reduces anxiety.
  • Decreases stress. Some yoga poses can combine stretching exercises, controlled breathing, and relaxation techniques. These all together can help reduce stress, improve heart health, and lower blood pressure.
  • Breathe better. Breathing deeply and calmly is an essential part of every yoga practice. By practicing yoga regularly, you will improve your breathing. These techniques can also be adopted in other situations in your daily life.
  • Fight depression. Studies have shown that yoga can decrease symptoms of depression. Yoga can decrease the level of cortisol, a stress hormone that is often associated with depression.
  • Promote sleep quality. Yoga can help you keep your mind away from the stress in your daily life. This allows you to relax both your mind and body, which results in better sleep quality.
  • Improves flexibility, balance and strength. You don’t have to be flexible to do yoga, but if you practice yoga regularly, you will increase in your flexibility, and pains will hopefully start to disappear. Even strong muscles can protect us from conditions like back pain, arthritis and other chronic pains. Better flexibility and stronger muscles also lead to reduced risk of inflammation.
