Benefits of Yoga
Flexibility: Moving and stretching in new ways will bring greater range of motion to tight areas. As we age, flexibility naturally decreases, which leads to pain and immobility. Yoga can ameliorate this process.
Strength: Many yoga poses require you to support the weight of your own body, including balancing on one leg or supporting yourself with your arms. Holding poses over the course of several breaths also builds strength.
Muscle tone: As a by-product of getting stronger, you can expect to see increased muscle tone. Yoga helps shape long, lean muscles.
Balance: Improved balance is one of the most important benefits of yoga. Consistent yoga practice will strengthen your core, a major factor in balance.
Joint Health: People with arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome often see marked improvement in their pain and mobility with regular gentle yoga practice.
Pain Prevention: Increased flexibility and strength can help prevent back pain caused by sitting at a computer or driving a car. Yoga also improves the body's alignment, which helps prevent many other types of pain.
