What can we get from doing yoga?
Yoga has become a popular exercise in our daily life. For many people, yoga is a way for relaxation and it is also a way of proving them comfort in the chaotic and hectic life. Yoga brings us many benefits and makes our life more colorful. Keep practicing yoga, you can get more than health.
Enhance inner awareness
Yoga builds a better and firmer inner world. It helps us focus on what we are doing at the moment. It helps us to enhance our breath and body ability. It helps to strengthen our minds and emotion. It is not only for bodybuilding.
There is usually no mirror in the yoga studio. That is why people will focus on their inner world, not their pose or the people around them. People who practice yoga feel more confident in their bodies than those who don’t practice yoga. We gain self-esteem during our yoga practice.
Weight loss and maintenance
People who practice yoga will be more sensitive to hunger and fullness. A survey shows that people who have been practicing yoga for many years gain less weight than those who don’t practice yoga. Mindfulness builds a great contribution to this.
As we all know, yoga is a way to reduce stress and release the tension of our body and mind. Besides, it can also strengthen our exercise capacity. We do a small test by finding a group of people who do not practice yoga before. They started to practice yoga three times a week and lasted for eight weeks. They are more muscular and flexible after 8-week practice.
Positive effect on Cardiovascular
Some studies proved that yoga is good for reducing the risk of cardiovascular. It helps people who have hypertension to lower their blood pressure. Yoga is also good for the cure of some diseases to some degrees, such as coronary artery disease and diabetes.
Improve your bone health
Practicing yoga regularly would do good to your bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. The poses downward facing dog and upward facing dog required body lifting, which helps to improve arm bones.
Make you focus
The great help of doing yoga is helping you focus at present. Regular yoga practice enhances our flexibility and helps to find peace. We will be much more focused on what we are doing at present and leave all the troubled minds behind. We free our minds when we are doing yoga and feel who we are and what we do at that moment. It helps us to forget what annoys us in our life and keep us calm and peaceful.
I think everyone needs to find a way to relax and release the tension from the noisy world. Yoga might be a good way deserved to try.
