Why practice Yoga?
Imagine an activity which can strengthen your muscles, help prevent excessive weight gain, increase your flexibility, centre your thoughts, relax and calm you. Yoga does it all and much more. Yoga literally means union. It unites our mind, body and soul for a balanced, happier and useful life. Yoga can change your mental and physical capacity while preparing the mind and body for a healthy life.
Developing strong and flexible muscles protect you from problems like arthritis and back pain and also help prevent falls in elderly people. You can only build muscle if you go to the gym, but if you desire muscle strength and flexibility, yoga is definitely the best option. Yoga also helps improve sleep quality, enhance spiritual well-being, improves social function and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
