Yoga is an investment in oneself that with continuous practice yields dividends for life. Feeling younger, stronger and more balanced to deal with life is hard to ignore. Yoga is a practice that you can continue for the rest of your life. It does not take the place of your medical care but can be a complement to medical care.
Benefits for the mind and nervous system are increased concentration, calmness, feelings of contentment, greater self-confidence and increased control over mood swings. Physical benefits of yoga are plentiful and enduring. With regular practice of Yoga postures and breathing techniques, benefits can be produced in the body such as improved balance, flexibility, range of motion along with increased strength and vitality. Regular Yoga means taking time for you a minimum of 3 times per week. The more often you practice the more benefits you will notice and the more you will want to practice.
If you suffer from any of the following conditions you can find relief in a regular Yoga practice: Unmanaged Mental Stress, Anxiety, Panic attacks, Insomnia, Depression, Lack of Focus or Concentration, Chronic Pain, Addictions or addictive behavior patterns or PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (just to name a few).
Add a few minutes of Meditation or Yoga Nidra several days a week and will amplify the Yoga benefits, including getting more done in less time because of greater ability to concentrate and focus. If you think you do not have a few minutes for meditation, then you really need it!
