‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’ which means to join or balance. Each posture has a therapeutic effect on one or many parts of the body. So, it is important to learn asana and pranayama from trained teachers to get the right benefits. But first, let us understand the medicinal and health benefits of regularly practising yoga asanas and pranayama

Benefits of Yoga:

  • Improves Flexibility: Once you start practising yoga in your day-to-day life, you will undoubtedly notice an improvement in the flexibility of your own body. Your body will start loosening up and you can bend or stretch easily.
  • Corrects your Posture: Correctly doing yoga will make your spine erect and thus improve your body posture. Improper posture can cause pain in the neck, back and a lot of other muscle and joint problems.
  • Increases Blood Flow: Yoga enhances blood circulation throughout the body. Oxygen reaches properly to every cell. Yoga also increases levels of haemoglobin and red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues.
  • Increases Concentration Levels: Yoga improves your concentration power and helps you focus better. People who do yoga and meditation daily have a good memory as they are less distracted by their thoughts.
  • Boosts your Immune System: Yoga asanas enhance the functioning of the immune system and strengthen the body from within.
