Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness Shares 4 Amazing Benefits of Yoga, Manhattan, New York

Millions of Americans practice some form of yoga and it is now an incredibly mainstream method of exercise. However, even though it’s so popular, many are not aware of the benefits of practicing yoga. The personal trainers at Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness are well-versed in the various positions and types of yoga, as well as the numerous benefits. Offering one-on-one personal training sessions, their staff will fine tune poses and postures according to an individual’s state of health and needs.

Here they cover the top four benefits of practicing yoga for anyone who decides to embark on this spiritually healing journey:

  • Get better sleep: Yoga helps reduce the symptoms and severity of insomnia by increasing the flow of blood, reducing stress, and helping with breathing. After doing some poses, many fall to sleep faster and have a higher quality of sleep.
  • Improvement in mood: Some say that yoga is the perfect antidote to anxiety or depressive states because it produces more of the chemical GABA, a chemical that regulates nerve activity. Often medicine is prescribed to help with the production of GABA, so yoga is a more natural alternative available that does the same thing.
  • Improved immune system: Yoga can reduce the risks of possible illnesses such as heart disease, and help regulate high blood pressure and cholesterol. Breathing exercises make the blood circulate better in your body, and therefore help the organs work better.
  • Improved flexibility and strength: Yoga poses stretch many different areas of the body, making it the ultimate workout. It increases the range of motion of your body and also requires the body to uphold posture and balance, increasing the overall strength of your muscles.
