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
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.
Stretching and strengthening the yoga way leads to less pain and better all-round functional movement.
7) Be full of beans!
Two 90-minute yoga sessions a week can reduce fatigue by 57 per cent.
8) Get back on your feet
Yoga is good for your overall health. Just two weekly 90-minute yoga sessions can lower inflammation by 20 per cent.
9) Bye bye cramps!
Yoga lowers the levels of hormones that cause menstrual cramps.
10) Give your sex life a boost
Regular yoga raises arousal and lubrication by increasing blood flow.
