4 ways yoga benefits your health

Yoga is designed to help achieve a more positive outlook on life and focussed, sense of serenity and peace. We love yoga and it makes us feel great so we thought we would share the reasons why: 

1. It reduces stress
Yoga incorporates stretching, breathing techniques and meditation and is the key to a calmer state of mind. This encourages relaxation and reduces the level of stress hormone cortisol. It also reduces blood, pressure, heart rate which also helps to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia as it mainly occurs in the area of the brain responsible for positive emotions and relaxation response.

2. Its a great work out
Contrary to believe yoga is a great workout. It requires balance, strength and stamina. It increases flexibility and helps to keep in tune with our bodies. It also builds muscle! 

3. It improves your memory and concentration
 Studies have shown that 20 minutes of yoga improves your concentration better than any other form of exercise and protects against your brain ageing.  

4. Inner Peace
Yoga helps us to focus on the present, to become more aware and to help create mind body health. It increases our spiritual awareness and keeps us in touch with ourselves.
