Health Benefits you will achieve by practicing Yoga

Many scientists and researchers have already discovered clues that prove the effect of practicing yoga improves your health constitution. This relaxing sport will help you to recover from heal aches and pains and keeps sickness at bay. We collected ten reasonable benefits you can achieve by exercising yoga:

#1: By improving your flexibility, you will not only prevent a poor posture, but also improve the constitution of your muscles and connective tissue.

#2: Your muscles will gain on strength. This does not only look good, it will protect you from arthritis and pack pain.

#3: During a yoga session, you take your joints through their full range of motion. This will help squeezing out your joint cartilage, so it is able to soak up new supply and receive fresh nutrients.

#4: Every backbend, forward bends and twist will help you keep your spinal disks supple. Only when they are moving, they are able to soak up their nutrients.

#5: It is proven that weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones and helps ward off osteoporosis. During many yoga postures you will have to lift your own weight. For example, the downward- and upward-facing dog helps strengthen the arm bones. Not for notihing, this part of the body is particularly vulnerable to osteoporotic fractures.

#6: Your blood flow will improve by practicing yoga. Especially many relaxation exercises will help your circulation in hands and feet. During the workout your cells are even receiving more oxygen.

#7: With contracting and stretching your muscles, you increase the drainage of lymph, the fluid of your body containing lots of immune cells. This helps your lymphatic system to fight infections and cancerous cells, as well to dispose toxic waste products.

#8: Several studies have found out that by regularly pushing your heart rate into the aerobic range, you lower your risk of heart attack. Though not all yoga is aerobic, even the non-aerobic exercises can improve your cardiovascular conditioning.

#9: Yoga is not only encouraging weight loss, it even lowers blood sugar and “bad” LDL cholesterol while boosting “good” HDL cholesterol. People with low blood sugar levels, not only diabetics, are decreasing the risks of heart attacks, kidney failures and blindness.

#10: Protect youself with yoga: It provides a downtime for the nervous system. This will help you to improve your sleeping habits. You will be less tired and stressed which likely lowers the risk of having an accident.
