Practicing Yoga Helps Your Mind and Body Throughout the Day

practicing yoga

The benefits of yoga practice goes far beyond the actual time you spend in the poses. It is yoga's effect on your whole life that brings one back to the poses over and over again.

One of the most common reasons why people begin practicing yoga is to improve their health and well-being. Yoga means union. It is a union of the mind, body and breath, so all aspects of your life are impacted by your practice.

A major benefit of yoga is physical.

  • Yoga improves your flexibility - The stretching that you engage in during every practice helps lengthen and stretch muscles, which helps reduce the risk of injuries.

  • Yoga improves your balance - The majority of yoga practices include some type of balancing in the poses. A significant number of people, especially as they began to get older, start to have problems with balance, which can lead to major injuries due to falls. Maintaining a greater sense of balance, keeps you able to move both more easily and safely.

  • Yoga can help reduce pain - Tense muscles often contribute to pain. Relaxing muscles helps to minimize muscle tension and the pain that is associated with it. Also, breathing deeply into muscles helps lessen pain by altering your perception of it.

  • It tones your muscles - Yoga works all the muscles in your body. It helps strengthen and tone them while at the same tyime also builds endurance and stamina.

  • It helps to increase your level of energy - Carrying tension in your body takes an enormous toll on your energy reserves. By learning how to relax through your yoga practice, you benefit by enjoying higher levels of energy so you can more thoroughly enjoy your daily activities.

    Yoga helps promote a sense of relaxation - Most people breathe high in their chests. This not only does not allow them to get sufficient oxygen, it also triggers the stress response, which contributes to feelings of anxiety. Breathing deeply as practiced in yoga, helps relax your muscles and also brings much needed oxygen to your cells. The deep sense of relaxation also leads to better quality sleep.

    Each yoga practice ends with some type of relaxation. Since your body and mind are one, by relaxing your body you also relax your mind-worries dissipate. Many yoga experts believe that a relaxation pose is the most beneficial pose in any yoga practice.

    Another benefit of yoga is mental

  • Yoga clears your mind and helps you focus your attention - During your practice, you are focusing your attention on your breath and turning inward. This concentration allows you to withdraw from the distractions in your environment. A significant benefit of yoga practice is that you can take this ability to focus your attention into every aspect of your life. You can be fully present with whatever you are doing instead of worrying about tomorrow or regretting yesterday. Not only will your actions be more productive, you can also enjoy them in a greater way.

  • Yoga helps reduce stress - Deep breathing helps lower the hormones that are released when you are feeling overwhelmed, overloaded, and frazzled. The internal focus that accompanies the poses helps create a relaxation response in your body.

  • Yoga can help release stuck emotions - Often, stuck emotions find their way into our bodies. Remember, your mind and body are one. If you are suppressing any painful emotions, you will often experience that as pain in some part of your body. A benefit of yoga is that by breathing deeply into places in your body that hold tension, you can help release the emotions that may be buried there. You can then examine these emotions and let go of those that do not serve you.

    Also, as you take your body past the limits of where it has been, you start to feel that you can move past other limitations in your life as well.

  • You gain a sense of peace and tranquility - Most yoga practices include some time for meditation. Regular meditation helps your mind reach a state of inner calm. It helps you gain control over your thinking instead of being at the mercy of wayward thoughts.

    As you can see, the benefit of yoga has far reaching effects in every area of your life. Maintain a regular yoga practice, and you will see for yourself, how yoga can benefit you, too.
