Yoga? Really? Why? (Part 3)

This week’s Top Three Benefits from Practicing Yoga

This is the third part of our series on Favorite Benefits from Practicing Yoga. Curious about other benefits?  Check out Part I and Part 2 of this series to read more.

Working out on the bicycle or treadmill, and lifting weights and swimming a few laps are all well great physical exercises.  So, why yoga?  Simple.  Yoga is a complete discipline; the benefits of practicing yoga impact both our body and brain from the first day on the mat.  The list of benefits is long but here are three more of my favorites:

  1. It’s great for our bones!  Research shows that yoga can help increase bone density as we get older.
  2. We all need time for stillness, even for a few minutes. Ever get tired of the buzz of treadmills, clank of weights and music blaring from your headphones? Soak up some silence during savasana in a yoga class.
  3. It will energize your mind and your body. It does more to make less of stress. Yoga’s a top-notch stress-buster. Those who practice deep yoga breathing report feeling less stressed.  It’s that great feeling after class that will keep you coming back for more!

So, what  benefits make yoga your first love? Please share your thoughts n our comments section below!
