Benefits of Yoga
Yoga is a meditative and philosophical ancient practice. The asanas or poses came later in its history and integration with modern times. At YogaYou we hope to incorporate all three aspects for full mental health and wellbeing.
Improves your flexibility
Flexibility is improved by stretching which in turn relieves tension. Where the body goes the mind follows. When you let go of physical tension you let go of mental tension.
Protects your spine
Gives strong and supple skeleton and helps promote the nervous system to function at its ideal and optimum efficiency
Perfects your posture
Good posture prevents stiffness, stress which can lead to chronic pain and reduced blood flow
Betters your bone health
Yoga lengthens the muscle, creating tension on the bone increasing bone strength without damaging cartilage or stressing the joint like other sports.
Betters your blood flow
Yoga brings more oxygen to the cells, twisting brings fresh oxygenated blood to the organs and inversions reverse blood flow from the lower body to the brain and heart.
Quietens the mind
Yoga can create a cognitive shift to visual right brain thinking and evokes a trance-like meditative state.
