Yoga Because it’s addictive
Yoga is so complex and involves so many techniques that anyone can use it for a different reason. But let’s see what these are and how we can use them to our advantage.

The yoga teacher transfers his knowledge of the practices he knows and beyond it is up to each practitioner to decide what he or she will decide to incorporate into their daily lives and for what purpose. The other uses yoga for empowerment, the other for flexibility, the other for increasing his concentration to be more effective in his work, the other for reducing stress and peace of mind, the other for spiritual development and the other to come into contact with his inner self. himself. And that list is endless When all of these benefits are gained through regular exercise, they help to increase the sense of well-being, which explains why so many people find yoga addictive.
Let us explain in more detail what all these benefits of yoga can bring to our lives, whether we are 12 or 70 years old.
Physically yoga has a positive effect on every organ system we have but also on everything together at the same time. * Initially improves our respiratory function by cleansing and strengthening the lungs.* Stimulates the function of the heart and vessels by facilitating blood flow to our bodies. * It detoxifies us by promoting the digestive process and every function of the intestines, stomach and liver.
* In particular, it helps women a lot in terms of fertility and gynecological issues as it stimulates the uterus and the entire genital system and constantly haunts the pelvic region.
* Naturally strengthens bones and significantly improves joint function, thereby helping with musculoskeletal problems as well as inflammation of the joints such as arthritis, tendonitis and more. There have been people’s testimonies and studies showing that people with hernias on their spine have improved their physical well-being with yoga and many have avoided surgery. In addition, patients with migraine, arthritis and pain from various factors and autoimmune diseases, incorporating yoga into their weekly program have dramatically improved their quality of life.
But what is worth emphasizing is that yoga is an art whose primary purpose is prevention. We don’t need to get sick to bring yoga into our lives. Yoga provides us with all the weapons we need to have health and longevity.
As for our mental and mental health now,
the benefits here are numerous again. Some become apparent from the beginning of practice and others are so subtle that it takes time to recognize them. The practice of yoga is physically intense. Focusing so much on what the body does results in bringing peace of mind. Yoga also introduces us to meditation techniques such as breathing observation and meditation. These skills can prove valuable in stressful situations such as childbirth, insomnia or when an anxiety crisis comes. During the yoga class the concentration on breathing and movement is so intense that there is no room for other thoughts. This is happening slowly in our lives. We learn to focus on the moment we live and so we are not tormented by thoughts about the future or the past. Small and large problems become easier to manage.
Yoga will help you improve your posture. You are often called upon to make small, subtle moves to improve your alignment. Over time, yoga exercises will help increase your comfort level in your body and can lead to improved posture and more confidence. And when we feel more confident about ourselves, that can only lead to success!
