Yoga can really ease the mind and it is known to be very relaxing and healing physically and mentally.

I have personally never partaken it myself, but I plan to soon. Practicing yoga can result in significant improvement to your physical health. As part of your daily routine, yoga will likely transform your body into one that is firmer, leaner and stronger.

The benefits of yoga are so through the roof that you would be silly to not at least give it a try. Many professional athletes partake in this activity, and it most certainly benefits how they play. I took some time to research and interview a friend who partakes in Yoga weekly.

I interviewed my friend Aniyah Toler. I first asked her “what benefits do you feel after completing a session?” She responded with, “I personally just feel closer to my higher self and relieved of all stress that I have being that college at Miami U is very stressful. I then asked How often she does it and why? She responded with “twice a week and because it helps balance my week out with positive and relaxing energy.” I then asked her what advice she would give to someone who hasn’t experienced it yet? Aniyah responded saying that “anyone who hasn’t taken a chance to heal themselves mentally and physically from doing yoga is missing out and that adversity and stress is always going to be around in our lives so why not find an easy way to cope with it?” She really opened my eyes up more to yoga and I will be experiencing it very soon.

“Yoga practice is commonly broken down into different postures or asanas. The different postures are guided by breath and focus on using core strength (mula bandha) to move energy (prana) through the body. Because there are many different schools of yoga, it can be challenging to nail down which discipline is right for you. Below is a simple guide to the different branches of yoga.” There are many different types of yoga and mind healing. It is very important to have a healed mind because it really affects who you are on the outside also inside. Rooted in Indian philosophy, yoga is an ancient method of relaxation and used by many as a spiritual experience. Yoga studios usually don’t have mirrors. This is so people can focus their awareness inward rather than how a pose or the people around them look.

Surveys have found that those who practice yoga were more aware of their bodies than people who don’t. They were also more satisfied with and less critical of their bodies. For these reasons, yoga has become an integral part in the treatment of eating disorders and programs that promote positive body image and self-esteem. Again if you haven’t partaken I suggest you to, go and heal you body and mind. “Another study of 131 people had similar results, showing that 10 weeks of yoga helped reduce stress and anxiety. It also helped improve quality of life and mental health” https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/13-benefits-of-yoga#TOC_TITLE_HDR_2
