In some way or another, exercising is probably one of your new year’s resolutions. So, why not start with yoga? There are many benefits to practicing yoga, such as increased flexibility, muscle strength, and tone; improved breathing, energy, and vitality; cardio and circulatory health; and weight reduction. In fact, new research published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that yoga can be as beneficial to weight loss and lowering blood pressure as exercises such as cycling or brisk walking are.
Along with physical benefits, yoga is beneficial for improving mental health. It has also been known to reduce stress, enhance sleep, and improve mental well-being.
