- Yoga makes you feel better than ever before
Regular practice of simple asanas prepares your body for increased flexibility that enhances your physical and emotional well-being. The amount of time we give to yoga is the time we utilize for our own “ME-Time” and it, therefore, rejuvenates us for a fresher day ahead.
- Yoga increases your flexibility
When practiced in moderation and with the right breathing techniques, yoga significantly corrects the problems of bad posture. Nowadays 60% of working-class suffers from this because of long sitting hours. Regular practice of yoga goes a long way in improving the flexibility of our bodies and that eventually removes stiffness and pains.
- Improves your strength
One must be aware that practicing yoga isn’t merely about stretching and bending, it also involves a surprising amount of strength. An enduring physical strength is important in order to prevent injury, improve the immune system and metabolism and help make everyday tasks easier.
- Boosts your immune system
With every movement, our body develops a power of endurance that further enhances our immune system. With every move’s twisting, inverting, back bending, and calming, the body becomes capable to spend more time within the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and less with the sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight system, which causes stress and inflammation and dramatically lowers the immune system).
- Improves focus
The energy we derive after practicing yoga drives us towards our goal and help us reach where we want it to go. Yoga is believed to bring one-pointedness concentration through practice. In yoga, we eventually train the mind to become aware and present. After every yoga session, you are generally better able to focus your mental resources, process information more accurately and also learn, hold and update pieces of information more effectively.
6. Increases energy
Our morning routine usually starts with dragging ourselves out of bed and gulping down a coffee but instead if we try ten rounds of Surya Namaskar or some Kapalabhati pranayama we can notice the enormous impact it has on our nervous system. A few minutes of yoga practice every day can change your life drastically by providing you relaxation from anxiety and stress and can also elevate your happy hormones by stabilizing the process for the entire day.
- Boosts metabolism
Early morning yoga practice helps in getting rid of the blood, breath and muscle movement before breakfast, therefore allowing the nutrients from your food to be better absorbed. When we start our day with yoga, we experience a higher metabolism throughout the day and feel better.
