As a regular yoga practitioner and teacher, I’ve often received enquiries on whether by practicing yoga it will help to meet a specific need. Will I be able to lose weight? Will it help to reduce my knee pain? How will it help my body alignment? What can it do for my lower back issues?

There are a great many benefits to be found from consistent and regular yoga matt practice. Here are 10 real reasons why you should start practicing yoga.

1) Use your HEAD

Yoga helps ease stress by decreasing the fight or flight response.Carrin-Lotus

2) It’s your HEART that counts

Studies have shown that yoga practice lowers blood pressure, improves blood flow, and may also reduce atherosclerosis.

3) Cover your BACK

Regular sessions provide short-term (and possible long-term) relief from chronic lower back pain.

4) Breathe easy

Sixty five minutes of yoga a day lowers the use of asthma medication. Yoga has also been found to lower the vagal reactivity that precedes asthma attacks.

5) From strength to strength

Regular practice promotes long-term flexibility by making muscles more elastic.
