what can yoga do for me?

on March 30, 2013

Yoga can offer so many benefits … on so many levels.  Yoga includes not just postures but also breath control, concentration and meditation and it is the combination of all these that give the optimum benefit.

People often think first in terms of the physical benefits – increased flexibility muscle tone and strength.  Better posture.  Relief from back, neck and shoulder pain.  Regular practice of yoga is likely to lead to all of these.

Relief from stress – taking time to practice yoga not only gives benefits whilst practicing, but also afterwards … and gradually seems to pervade your whole life leading to greater calmness, more patience and less feeling a need to rush.

Better self-esteem – regular practice of yoga changes the way you view yourself … you seem to have less need to compare with others and have a greater sense of your own value (in a non egotistical way).

Improved health and wellbeing – regular yoga practice improves vitality and your immune system…. you just feel better inside and out.

So what are you waiting for … find a good yoga teacher now!  Look for someone who has done a proper training course – for example with the British Wheel of Yoga.  Try out a class and see how good you feel afterwards!
