Physical yoga can vary from gentle slow movements to rigorous cardiovascular “flows” to restorative healing poses for improved healing. Whatever type of yoga you choose you will likely notice that your body moves with more ease and less discomfort. Yoga combines strength building and flexibility training, toning muscles and improving your range of motion simultaneously.

2) Improved Focus and Concentration

Exercise and physical activity improves blood flow to the brain. Yoga acts as moving meditation and teaches the brain to be focused and stay in the present moment. During each session movement is coordinated with breathing, when this happens it gives the brain a single task. Less distraction for a busy mind can give clarity and permission to focus on the task at hand in a yoga session, and in other areas of our lives.

3) Improved Sleep

Like most forms of exercise, yoga can improve the quality of your sleep. Yoga allows you to fall asleep faster and sleep soundly through the night. Deep sleep is essential for the body to repair its self. Yoga can make a big difference in your sleep habits.
