6 Secrets You Didn’t Know About Yoga

Any Yoga practitioner would agree that Yoga is not just a practice but a way of living. Since its origination in ancient India, it has spread to countries far and wide. And rightly so! The benefits of Yoga are multi-fold and these benefits can change your life for the better. Here are a few of them that you probably weren’t aware of:

 

 

1. Improved Sleep

Sleep may come across as a redundant process to many but it is notably the most essential operation that your body carries out. The different stages of sleep have different vital functions that are actively being carried out throughout your body.

Regular Yoga practice has been studied to help relax individuals, making it easier for them to fall asleep, and fall asleep deeply. Moreover, insomniacs have been studied to fall asleep faster and more easily through the practice of Yoga.  

 

2. Holistic Life

Yoga has the power to enhance your life physically, emotionally and mentally. It serves as a great method to inculcate and imbibe mindfulness into your daily life with the opportunity to be more connected to what you do and the way you do it.

It fosters a more holistic health and way of living that helps you be more in tune with the flow of the here and now.

 

 

3. Boost in Energy

You are likely to feel a hike in your energy levels when adopting yoga as your daily practice. Studies show that yoga helps keep the hormone levels adjusted, the ‘cortisol’ being one of them.

This along with the deep breathing techniques that you learn to incorporate into your way of being helps increase your energy levels.

 

4. Flexibility

When attempting to visualize yoga, complex poses probably come to your mind. Poses that you didn’t think the human body was even capable of. Well with yoga, they are.

Over time, our muscles and joints tend to settle into a limited range of motions and with the help of a consistent yoga practice, you can break free of these imposed— albeit unintended— limitations, and achieve heightened flexibility in your muscles.

 

5. Right Posture

Do you slouch a lot or have a poor posture? Extended poor posture has a negative impact on the body, leading to backaches, muscle fatigue, neck pain, and joint problems. Yoga is one of the best ways to improve your posture as each posture helps your body get into its natural alignment. With a consistent practice, you can see improvement in months!

 

6. Health Benefits

Research has shown that yoga as a lifestyle prevents and reverses diseases while enhancing overall health. Yoga helps various health conditions like arthritis, depression, high-stress, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and more.

It lowers physical and psychological symptoms of chronic pain in women with fibromyalgia and is beneficial to the extent of improving conditions of individuals with special needs.

And in this way, yoga can guide your body towards health in a variety of ways and help you lead a more calm and wholesome life.
