What are the benefits of yoga?

Yoga is about much more than working (or chilling) out. It’s about moving through life’s challenges—whether physical or emotional—with poise and grace. On a physical level, a regular yoga practice stimulates our muscles, nerves and organs in ways that traditional exercise cannot; it releases tightness, reduces strain, improves circulation, strengthens the immune system and supports healthy digestion. The practice of yoga can also have a profound effect on one’s emotional state, fostering greater concentration, boosting confidence and helping to quiet a busy mind. Yoga is especially helpful in the relief of stress-related symptoms, including insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and indigestion.
