We all know that a healthy dose of exercise can contribute to your overall health. A good exercise not just
affects your physical body, but your mental and spiritual wellbeing as well. One exercise that is effective in
doing so is Yoga. Yoga is an ancient practice of mental, physical, and spiritual discipline that originated from
India and is becoming wildly popular nowadays. So how does this meditative exercise benefit your mind,
body, and spirit altogether? Read about the top six benefits of Yoga below.




   Relieves stress. Yoga is effective in relieving stress because it encourages relaxation of the body even
    when it is in its active state. When the body is relaxed it then lowers the amount of cortisol in the body
    responsible in building stress. When the body is relaxed, the mind is relaxed, thus relieving stress.
   Relieves pain. Some exercise such as weight-lifting and other intense physical activities can leave
    your body sore for days. This is not the case with Yoga. Yoga can actually ease aches and pains in the
    body through meditation and special exercises that relieves tension in the muscles.




   Increased strength. Weight-lifting is not the only physical activity capable of increasing your
    strength. Yoga can do that as well through different poses that utilizes almost all the muscles in your
    body. Some Yoga exercises require you to change poses slowly which increases your strength.
   Better breathing. You think you have weak lungs? Yoga can be a good solution to your lung
    problems through its breathing exercises that strengthens the lungs, which benefits your whole body.
    It focuses on deep and steady breathing that clears the nasal passages and calms the nervous system.




   Greater focus. One of the benefits of Yoga is improved concentration and focus. Yoga exercises
    require you to focus your attention on certain activities such as maintaining a specific pose, improving
    your breathing, or keeping your mind clear. Yoga practitioners admit to having better coordination,
    concentration, memory skills and reaction times after including Yoga in their daily exercise routine.
   Inner peace. This is one of the primary reasons why Yoga is different from other forms of exercise.
    Yoga trains the mind to be calm while at the same time develops the body to become stronger. When
    the mind is free from stress and the body feels good, it becomes more aware of spiritual experiences.
    One of those experiences is finding inner peace or happiness.


When you’re trying to achieve a healthy wellbeing through exercise, it should leave you with a great feeling
instead of being exhausted and feeling punished. If you feel unsatisfied with your current workout routine, now
is a good time to try Yoga. A good workout should develop not just your body, but your mind and spirit as
well.



“I began by doing physical yoga, initially just for the workout, as exercise. I would get peaceful and calm at
                               the end of it, and I was curious about that.”
                                             ~Mariel Hemingway
