YOGA BENEFITS - 10 POSITIVE EFFECTS FOR YOUR HEALTH

YOGA BENEFITS - 10 POSITIVE EFFECTS FOR YOUR HEALTH

Why should you do yoga? We all know that regular exercise and movement are good for our bodies. But what special effects do we unleash through yoga? The great thing is: Yoga has many effects that can have a positive impact on our health - both mentally and physically.

What are the benefits of yoga? What do you have to consider? What happens to my body when I do the exercises? In this article you will find the 10 positive effects yoga has on your health and why you should therefore incorporate regular exercises into your everyday life. Here we go!

1. CONTROL BREATHING

Probably the most important and perhaps most valuable aspect of yoga is the effect it has on breathing. Nothing is as decisive for the sequence of movements, but also for the entire yoga session, as correct breathing or breathing technique. Learning these is one of the basic principles and affects the entire implementation. It ensures that you can find your inner peace, concentrate on performing the exercises and, above all, remain in certain yoga positions for the entire duration.

It is not for nothing that this part of yoga is one of the most difficult and often requires years of practice. However, as soon as you have learned to control your breathing, you can also use the techniques you have learned in everyday life, for example to find peace in exciting situations, after a strenuous day at work or during panic attacks.

2. GET TO KNOW YOUR BODY

Regular yoga training also has a positive effect on your self-esteem. For one thing, you will notice some physical changes - such as firmer skin. However, through the movement sequences you will get to know your body better and learn how flexible you are and which exercises are good for you. Yoga is suitable for everyone and has no restrictions.


3. STRENGTHEN THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM

Yoga has another positive effect on your entire musculoskeletal system. The movements and exercises are so extensive and varied that they train your entire body and address all muscle groups equally. This strengthens the entire musculoskeletal system and thus often has a more effective training than through pure strength or endurance exercises while jogging or visiting the gym.

4. RELIEVE THE BODY

As soon as you have strengthened your muscles through the individual yoga exercises, you automatically begin to relieve your body. Newly built or activated muscle groups protect your body from injuries, from back and neck complaints - which are often part of everyday life in office and desk jobs - as well as from muscular tension. I think it's an extremely valuable yoga advantage!


5. INCREASE VITALITY

Some yoga exercises are primarily aimed at relaxation. Others activate the body and increase your vitality. By using different muscle groups and staying in different asanas (resting body positions), the energy flows in the body are activated and can thus increase your mental and physical performance.

6. ORGANIZE THOUGHTS

Yoga is the perfect way to organize your thoughts and take the time to focus on yourself. This conscious time is often missing or neglected, especially in stressful everyday life. In particular, if you master the breathing techniques and meditative states, it will also help you in your job, in your free time or in your private life to control or direct your mental state.


7. MEDITATION: DEVELOPING MENTAL STRENGTH

You also bring about positive changes through the meditative elements of yoga. The focus on the inside and the clear guidance of your own thoughts ensures that you build up your inner strength and learn to remain calm in challenging situations. In addition, meditation has a positive effect on your defences and your immune system.

8. HEAL THE BODY

No matter what ailments you may have - the versatile exercises and possibilities of yoga allow you to solve or alleviate many impairments or restrictions. There are exercises that you can use to loosen neck blocks and, with others, have particularly positive effects on your joints. Yoga has been shown to have positive effects in the following areas:

Strengthening the cardiovascular system

Increase in antioxidants in the blood

Strengthening the back

Relief of tension in the neck area

Headache reduction

After all, yoga contributes to your general well-being and can also help with depression, panic attacks, or other emotional states.

9. STRUCTURE EVERYDAY LIFE

Integrating regular yoga exercises into everyday life may be difficult at first. However, if you notice how much the exercises help you to keep your body fit and healthy, you will probably automatically integrate them into your everyday life. In addition, they help you to create a fixed structure in your day, which you ensure regularity and routine. This helps you to stay relaxed, to plan enough time for yourself and to face new tasks with confidence.

Routines and clear structures are very important and essential for recovery, especially with mental illnesses such as depression. In addition, yoga exercises and other regularities help to distract yourself from certain things on which one - with a certain psychological history - is too focused and rigid.

10. RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES

Probably the most important aspect of yoga and the greatest benefit - is the opportunity to recharge your batteries. Hardly any other sporting activity manages as much as yoga to provide new strength for mind and body in the end, despite strenuous exercises. Be it on a mental or physical level - the positive effect on your energies can be enormous!

THE BENEFITS OF YOGA ARE OBVIOUS!

So, if you have still doubted or thought that yoga offers no benefits for you and your physical and mental condition, then you were wrong! Clearly, there are numerous positive effects of studying yoga techniques and incorporating them into your healthy lifestyle.


Happy International Yoga Day!!

Stay Healthy, Stay Fit!!

What Is Metabolism and How to Activate It?

We are going to share some of the aspects that you must understand if you want to activate your metabolism and make it start working in your favour. What is metabolism?

This is commonly called " burning calories." Even when we are at rest, our body needs a certain amount of energy, for circulation, respiration, et
