    Physical benefits of yoga..

    Pain Reduction
    Yoga can provide therapeutic relief from many ailments, such as back pain, arthritis, migraine headaches and menstrual cramps. Many yoga poses can also release tension and soreness in your muscles. Practicing yoga can even help you prevent illness and injury by improving your immune system and teaching you to treat your body well. As a result,yoga can serve as preventative therapy to help you not only improve, but also maintain your health.

    Improved Breathing
    The practice of yoga improves your breathing by heightening your awareness of your breath and increasing your lung capacity. By focusing on deep breathing in your yoga practice, you can help to release tension from your body and make your body more alkaline and less acidic. Too much acidity in your body can be harmful for your bones and tissues,and can also cause arthritis, fatigue, headaches and depression.

    Improved Circulation
    Many yoga poses help to improve the circulation of blood throughout your body. Improved blood circulation helps flush out toxins and impurities from your body. Regular practice of yoga can also help lower your blood pressure and pulse rate.

    Improved Strength and Flexibility
    One of the most noticeable effects of yoga is that it can make your body strong and flexible, while improving the range of motion in your joints. The practice of yoga can also improve your balance, tone your muscles and increase your stamina. Some yoga poses can also help you build strong bones, which helps to prevent osteoporosis.

    ...just to name a few :-)


    Peace

    you can really be benifitted from yoga if you do it properly on a regular basis. And it is equally important to learn the correct form of exercises before starting yourselves.

    Both are transformational, focused methods of movement that facilitate positive change in the body, mind and spirit. According to Jennifer Kries' blog, their differences complement one another in the best of ways. Pilates is known as a "workout," and yoga as a "practice"; however, the irony here is that, in order to improve at anything, we have to practice, and when we practice well both Pilates and yoga are can be exceptional workouts. And as you will see, both are worthy of your time and attention for innumerable reasons.

    Yoga is an excellent weight-bearing exercise that can improve your bone density. This is particularly beneficial for women approaching menopause, since yoga can help ward off osteoporosis, or thinning of the bone.

    That's the same with virtually every type of training. It's only really effective while you keep doing it regularly. If you take a long while out you are bascially a beginner with knowledge, but you do get the ability back quicker.
