People all over the world are becoming more and more health conscious today. As a matter of fact, they should be, if they want to live a happier and healthier life. This has given an exponential rise to the health and fitness industry as people find it better to work out in gyms using the gym equipments. Not only these gyms and physical training centers offer general and special workout sessions, but most of them also insist people do yoga along with that. This is because of the various benefits that yoga has on the physical as well as mental health of an individual. I, Kelly Speca, shall be discussing a few advantages of yoga in this article due to which it should be an essential part of your daily exercising regimen.

• Yoga makes you more flexible: since yogsanas improve the flexibility of your entire body, it should be practiced by both young and old. Young individuals,like me often practice strength training exercises, due to which the muscles become tight and have good chances of injury. Older people, on the other hand,lose flexibility with age because of which it becomes difficult for them to perform routine activities involve bending and stretching. If yogasanas like standing forward bend or Uttasana, triangle pose or UttithaTrikonasana, and the warrior pose or Virbhadrasana are regularly practicedyou will achieve a flexible spine, joints and muscles.yoga

• Yoga makes your heart healthy: many people suffer with various problems today. The most common among them occurs due to deteriorating heart health. Healthy food and cardio exercises at gym are undoubtedly beneficial, but including yoga can also make your heart healthier and strong as well as immune to diseases like heart attacks, stroke, and other cardiac problems. Including the three essential deep breathing or Pranayama i.elong breathing or Bhasrika, active exhalation or VatkramaKapalbhatiand alternate breathing orAnulomVilomcan work wonders for your heart. Also practicing some yogasanas like big toe pose or Padangushthasanandheadto knee forward bend or JanuSirsasananot only gives you a helthy heart, but also help you get rid of hypertention and high blood pressure that can also cause heart issues.

• Yoga helps you to detoxify your body and freshen up your mind: toxic compounds present in the environment or the unhealthy food habits or some other elements are one of the main causes of various health problems. Although changing your food habits and regular gyming can help you get rid of the problems, but practicing various yogasanas regularly completely eliminate toxins and harmful chemical compounds. Several yogasanas like ParivrttaTrikonasanaor revolved triangle pose, ArdhaMatsyendrasanaor half twist pose andBakasana or crane pose help in detoxifying the body as well as give strength to the muscles and bones. Breathing exercises or Pranayamhelps in detoxification as well as in relievingunderimmense stress from your body and mind making you fresh and active. Well I, Kelly Speca, would suggest you to join yoga classes from today. I just did theSavasanaor the corpse pose for only 10 minutes after a half an hour of cardio and am really feeling energized and lively in place of exhausted and tired.
