Yoga helps to stretch and tone your body muscles. Strong muscles protect us from conditions like arthritis and backpain. Daily Yoga helps improve posture and you will soon feel you walk taller and sit up straighter. Yoga prevents cartilage and joint breakdown as it helps take your joints through a full range of motions.
Yoga poses require movement backwards and forwards, with many twists which help to keep the spinal disks supple. Gentle Yoga positions fuel the metabolic system and help burn fat leading to weight loss. Daily Yoga also strengthens the mind body connection which is important to deal with emotions that are related to issues such as using food to suppress feelings.
