How to include a YOGA PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans.
We all have a vague idea that yoga is good for your body and mind. You finish a session feeling all loosey-goosey and centered. But not many of us understand exactly how yoga benefits us physiologically and mentally—and it's hard to know how many sun salutations we have to do in order for those benefits to manifest. If you're new to all the poses and spiritual zen, the practice can feel intimidating, but good news: Experts agree that the benefits of yoga can show up as soon as your first class.
Yoga can offer incredible benefits—from increased strength and flexibility to stress reduction—and is a great antidote to our hectic lifestyles that often overtax our nervous system. Though the benefits vary per individual and yoga style (kundalini, yin, vinyasa), there are certain positive changes that every yoga practitioner can expect to notice a day, week, month, or several years into their practice.
