Yoga makes your body stronger and gives you more energy to work and do other mentally and physically exhausting tasks.It makes you more agile, active and your body more activated. While many or most exercises might tire you out, a power packed session of yoga most definitely won’t. It will in fact, leave you energised for the rest of the day, kicking your adrenaline without you having to burst your lungs. The basic principle of Yoga is to use one’s own body weight to balance their own body. And trust us, it works like a fine bottle of wine.
It obviously makes your body way more flexibile than you ever thought you could be or your body could be. It is just the inherent nature of the exercise that makes your move like never before, helping you tone your muscles and developing muscle where there was fat and in turn give your body the much needed energy.

3. Stress Relieving
Tired of being stressed all time? Well, that just gives you another reason to try this ancient, well- researched and extremely effective form of exercise. Yoga, especially Ashtanga yoga, yog nidra have proven healing powers that can give your mind a much needed break. Seven minutes of meditation is a definite way to relax, calm your senses and get back in to the game with better energy. Another reason why yoga is considered to be stress relieving is due to how it connects you to your body, making you aware of every bone, every muscle and every pull and push you feel while stretching.
4. Connects You To Yourself
It connects you to yourself and helps you to get to know your inner self. Ask yourself how you’re feeling and meditate for a few minutes at the end of every practice session. Tune into your body and notice what it’s telling you. Pay attention to that fluttering in your chest or belly. Do it everyday till it becomes a habit. Wondering how to make it a habit? Stick this on the fridge and you’ll never forget your daily meditation practice.
