What is Yoga

In more recent years, yoga has become mainstream, known as a form of physical exercise based upon poses that promote improved control of the mind and body and enhance well-being. Multiple styles of yoga unite physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga has also become another popular alternative for people to exercise and relieve stress. Yoga may also dampen down inflammation genes. Yoga seems to decrease indications of depression, which includes focusing on negative thoughts and emotional eating, recommending the practice may be a valuable supplement to talking therapies and antidepressant drugs. Yoga overcomes perceived stress and anxiety, which in turn decreases the physical effects of pressure on the body. By being all about relaxation, yoga helps to lower the levels of stress hormones  like cortisol. Related yoga benefits involve dropping blood pressure and heart rate, increasing digestion, and supporting the immune system.


Your breath and emotions are a connection in a feedback circle. Yoga produces awareness and control to our breathing patterns, enabling us to notice when our emotions are giving impacts to our breath or not, and ultimately using the breath to calm our emotions. That is why it is vital  to always remember to inhale and exhale into the pose to avoid injuries during yoga practices. Yoga also helps energize your entire body. Since yoga is a full-body workout,  the main target is for all the muscles of the body to have  both static holds and dynamic movement . You are supporting your own body weight, building functional strength in areas where you really need it. Lastly, yoga can benefit you for weight management. Yoga is exercise, and excercise burns calories. But even less energetic styles of yoga can help you manage your weight by reducing stress, giving mindfulness influence to your eating habits, and implementing a better sense of well-being and self-esteem
