10 Yoga benefits
Yoga is partially understood as being limited to asanas (yoga poses). Its benefits are only perceived to be at the body level and we fail to realise the immense benefits yoga offers in uniting the body, mind and soul. Look at the foolowing top 10 benefits of regular yoga practice.
You are truly healthy when you are not just physically fit but also mentally and emotionally balanced. As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar puts it, "Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life - in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are."
2. Weight loss
Yoga helps here, too. Sun Salutations and Kapal Bhati pranayama are some ways to help lose weight with yoga. With regular practice of yoga, we tend to become more sensitive to the kind of food our body asks for.
3. Less stress
Few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily - in both the body and mind.
4. Inner peace
We all love to visit peaceful, serene spots, rich in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a mini-vacation to experience this any time of the day! Benefit from a small holiday every day with yoga and meditation.
5. Improved immunity
Our system is a seamless blend of the body, mind and spirit. An irregularity in the body affects the mind and similarly unpleasantness or restlessness in the mind can manifest as an ailment in the body.
6. Greater awareness
The mind is constantly involved in activity - swinging from the past to the future. By simply being aware of this tendency of the mind, we can actually save ourselves from getting stressed
7. Better relationships
Yoga can even help improve your relationship with your spouse, parents, friends or loved ones! A mind that is relaxed, happy and content is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters. Yoga and meditation focus on the mind happy and peaceful.
8. Increased energy
Shuttling between multiple tasks through the day can sometimes be quite exhausting. A few minutes of yoga everyday provides the secret to feeling fresh and energetic even after a long day.
9. Better flexibility
You only need to include yoga in your daily routine to benefit from a body that is strong, supple and flexible. Regular yoga practice stretches and tones the body muscles and also makes them strong. This would, in turn, help relieve you of body pain due to incorrect posture.
10. Better intuition
Yoga and meditation have the power to improve your intuitive ability so that you effortlessly realize what needs to be done and when and how, to yield positive results.
