10 Benefits of Yoga

Do you practice yoga? Or have you ever tried it before?

Since gaining increasing popularity over the last few years, pretty much everyone has at least heard of yoga, even if they have never tried it before. The idea of ‘yoga’ can range from stereotypes of the flexible fit girl doing crazy yoga poses upside down all the way to the Zen Buddhist wearing mala beads around their neck and chanting in Sanskrit. However, these stereotypes do not give a real picture of what yoga is. Because of these stereo types, many people might think that yoga isn’t for them. However, yoga has many different styles and is a great activity for everyone!

Yoga is a practice that strengthens the body and mind at the same time, and is not only for flexible or fit people. It is a practice than can be modified to anyone It is beneficial in so many more ways than you might realize. In fact, most people who practice yoga probably find that the more they practice, the more their reason for practicing changes.
