Richmond, VA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years as a way to improve health and wellbeing, according to Experient Health in its latest edition in its Living Well Blog series.
“By uniting the mind, body and spirit, the health benefits of practicing yoga can be seen both physically and mentally,” Experient Health wrote.
Yoga is a science that consists of observations, principles and theories regarding the connection between the mind, body and spirit. It is physically, emotionally and mentally challenging.
“While this is true, it is a misconception that you need to be flexible and in good physical shape in order to practice yoga,” according to Experient Health. “Yoga will help you become more aware of your body’s patterns of movement, posture and alignment—increasing your flexibility and fitness level. Not only that, but yoga is also often used as a stress-management and relaxation technique.”
The benefits of yoga include flexibility, strength, posture and stress reduction.
