Yoga has garnered a lot of attention in recent years for its ability to promote relaxation, weight loss, better posture, improved mental health, and personal development. But despite its now-mainstream status in the West, some people still don’t know what yoga is. Since yoga is non-competitive, there is no pressure to master a certain pose within a certain time frame—everything is done at your own pace. That way, you can focus on your progress in terms of physical, mental, and emotional health.

Here are some of the benefits yoga has for personal development:
- Physical Exercise: Psychologists have claimed that regular, moderate exercise can alleviate anxiety and depression. The feeling of comfort and mental ease at the end of a yoga session comes from being free to move muscles that used to be tight. Yoga encourages you to concentrate on the perfection of the postures and the physical sensations that come with it.
- Relaxation & Emotional Control: Apart from language and verbal expression, body-based therapeutic methods play a crucial role in dealing with emotional issues. Execution of various postures requires the tensing and relaxing of joints and muscle groups, which effectively promote relaxation in a mindful way. Most importantly, yoga practice draws attention to proper breathing, and a unique focus which can create a meditative mental state.
- Structured Social Opportunities: Most yoga practice in the U.S. is done in studios and ashrams. Therefore, taking classes regularly provides a significant social opportunity—you may make acquaintances and even form friendships. Making new connections with people can boost your self-esteem and help combat depressive withdrawal.
