The Benefits of Yoga

As a yoga instructor, I often get asked what the best type of practice is and if yoga really “works.” With such a variety of styles and levels, it can be a bit overwhelming for a beginner. While people look to yoga for different reasons, some for flexibility, others for weightloss, and some just to de-stress, it’s no secret that the physical and mental benefits are abundant. Recently, the Huffington Post published the infographic below “How Yoga Transforms Your Body”. It does a great job of breaking down the many immediate and long-term benefits of Yoga. It’s no wonder why it continues to be the number one form of exercise for all ages, with many adopting it as a lifestyle. Yoga has been around for many years and continues to grow in popularity, showing no sign of slowing down.
