The ancient practice of yoga will make your body more flexible, giving your muscles and joints a greater range of motion. A supple, flexible body is less prone to injuries because it will withstand physical and mental stress more efficiently.
The benefits of yoga include lower tension levels, stronger muscles, improved concentration powers and better balance and coordination levels. You will also experience a lower heart resting rate, increased memory capacity and higher energy levels.
The philosophy behind yoga is that by regular practice you will tone your body and mind and relieve and reduce natural stress levels.
When starting to practice yoga your body may be at first quite rigid and inflexible. After a very short time you will start to experience a remarkable flexibility in your joints and other body movements. Correct yogic stretching develops the entire body and mind bringing a sense of harmony and balance.
