Yoga makes you feel and look more youthful. It literally slows the aging process by stretching the body. Muscles can be developed two ways: by building them up into hard little knots of power, which is what you get when you lift weights, or by making them flexible and elastic, which is what you get when you practice yoga. Kinesiologists learn toward the latter method of body development, evenly distributing lean tissue, rather than tightly packed muscle bulges. The younger you are when you begin a yoga practice, the probability increases for extended life and better health.
Yoga for Physical Health
Yoga Mind Over Matter
But physical health is only half the story of yoga. And, mental health is the other. The spiritual side of yoga is not beneath your attention. Yoga is truly the classic case of mind over matter, where concentration is as important as the physical side. There Comes a time in fervently practiced yoga that approaches a trance-like meditative state, during which the mind functions at levels other than the conscious, the subconscious, and the unconscious. Regular practitioners of yoga often report a spiritual high achieved during their daily routine. Medically, that may result from the oxygenation of the blood, which heightens the perceptions in purely biological terms. The remarkable thing about yoga is its ability to change one's outlook on life, to alter it into serenity alongside the physical improvement.
