For those seeking improve their health naturally, yoga and meditation provide real and lasting health and well-being benefits if they practice regularly. Yoga is an ancient philosophy a holistic system that connects mind body and spirit through a series of asanas (yoga postures), breathing exercises and meditation.
The first and most common benefit upon your health when you first start doing yoga is reducing stress. This is naturally achieved by stretching, strengthening and toning your muscles, ligaments and joints, flexing your spine, performing the yoga postures and focusing the mind inwardly by relaxation and meditation.
That alone will make a tremendous impact above your health in overall, because as we all know stress play curtail role in many illnesses. Many scientific studies show that chronic stress doubles the risk of heart attack for example.
The natural health benefits of yoga are evident and more and more people are turning to yoga in order to restore their health and bring their lifestyles into harmonious balance.
Yoga has been shown to lower blood pressure and heart rate which reduces the risks of heart disease very significantly.
A recent study back in 2007 showed that Yoga helped to lower the cholesterol levels and improve circulation levels in patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. A very promising sign about yoga natural health benefits is the fact that quite a few hospitals and doctors recommend and send their patients to do yoga as post-cardiac rehabilitation programs. Me personally, I have a few students who told me their doctors send them to do yoga.
It is now proven by many studies that yoga helps people lose weight by series of yoga postures, breathing exercises, cleansing yoga techniques and meditation.
Yoga naturally leads people to a healthier lifestyle. Another recent study reported that people who regularly practiced yoga and meditation started eating less, eating more slowly, and choosing healthier foods. They also improved their eating disorders.
Many people say after practicing yoga for a time that yoga gives them an overall feeling of health and well-being.
By specifically designed yoga programs and routines by a experienced yogis yoga can also help to alleviate specific kinds of pains and disorders like migraine headaches, lower back problems, arthritis, digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety, depression and many more.
Yoga posture works similarly the way holistic healing massage works over the human body. Yoga also causes an increase of a natural body anti-pain chemical.
Yoga is now widely known that is very beneficial for pregnant women too. Pregnant women who do yoga for pregnancy sleep much better and they are much less likely to develop high blood pressure or deliver prematurely.
If these benefits are not enough for you then you may also want to consider this:
