Yoga

  • Increasing flexibility – yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised
  • Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons – likewise, the well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body
  • Massaging of all organs of the body – Yoga is perhaps the only form of activity which massages all the internal glands and organs of the body in a thorough manner
  • Complete detoxification – By gently stretching muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs, yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to various parts of the body
  • Excellent toning of the muscles – Muscles that have become flaccid, weak or slothy are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess flab and flaccidity.
  • Can also help reduce the frequency of migraine headaches,
  • Can decrease depression, anger and anxiety
