We’ve long known that yoga offers a host of physical benefits, including increased flexibility, a healthier weight, and possibly even stronger bones.
Yoga holds the power to transform our minds as much as it does our bodies.
The Mental benefits of yoga:
1. Yoga may help those with bipolar disorder.
2. It's a serious stress-buster.
The Mayo Clinic boasts yoga's power to fight stress and improve moods for all. Research shows that mindfulness-based stress reduction, like that at yoga’s core, can help lower anxiety and stress. In a study participants who practiced yoga for just 12 minutes every day for eight weeks showed a decrease in their immune systems' inflammation response.
3. Yoga boosts brainpower.
Not only do poses like downward dogs relax and de-stress, but they may actually increase brain function. A short, 20-minute session of Hatha yoga might improve focus and information retention.
4. It can increase happiness.
Ever notice how strong, centered and happy you feel after a yoga session? It turns out it's not all in your head. Research shows that the simple act of living in the moment boosts moods.
Yoga helps me and us focus on the present by providing both physical and mental exercises. It is all about practicing it.
