There’s More To Yoga Than Exercise

In the fitness world, lasting transformation and instant gratification are very important. Yoga practice can do more than help you twist your body into pretzel shapes and find inner peace. Here are five benefits of yoga that will transform your body from day one.

Better sleep

There are alot of things that ca keep you awake at night. And Researchers from Harvard found that eight weeks of daily yoga can significantly improve sleep quality for people with insomnia. This is because yoga is able to help you deal with stress. Sleep issues are like anxiety. But when you practice yoga, your body will releases all the stress and helps you sleep better. This is because during yoga, the core muscles of the body are activated to relax your body. And, when your body is relaxed, you sleep soundly.

Reduces joint pain

At one point in your life, you might encounter joint pains, especially if you are suffering from arthritis. A 2009 pilot study by Dr. Loren Fishman showed that practicing yoga could improve bone density among older adults. Yoga will help make your bones stronger, relieve the pains and hence, providing joint relief.

Better performance in bed

We all want to please our partners in bed. A 2009 Harvard study published in the The Journal of Sexual Medicine shows that yoga could boost arousal, desire, orgasm and general sexual satisfaction for women. Because yoga helps you relax, you will be able to participate fully in bed as you won’t be distracted. Also, the postures you do in yoga enhance your flexibility and stamina. These two make your sex life better and will help you endure.

Makes you happier

According to research, yoga activates the secretion of happy chemicals that can help keep you happy. Furthermore, it helps suppress negative feelings. In the long run, yoga will not only leave you feeling more comfortable but with less mood swings. There’s no better gift than a happy life.
