I know I know. “Yoga? What?” Hear me out tho.

If yoga is something that you may be considering or have in the past. A little heads up?":/''; it is 100% natural to fart (kinda a lot) when beginning basic stretching. You will notice various physical, chemical, and mental changes, I.E. Endurance improvements, pooting, focus increase, etc.

"Well these are clearly some defective yoga mats so I'm gonna take them back. Right now. Bye. *grabs mats and runs. *forgets car keys. *keeps running.

Introduction to yoga:

Yoga can be defined in many ways. As a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures. Yoga is widely practiced for health and relaxation.

Now its time to learn many of the great benefits of yoga as well as maybe see some of them in your life from regular practice. If you are interested in upgrading you life, here are some benefits that will flourish:

Stress reduction

Many studies have shown that yoga may help reduce stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your overall mood and sense of well-being.

Improved fitness

Practicing yoga may lead to improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength.

Improves digest!on

There are plenty of high-fiber and probiotic-rich foods that can help get things moving, but practicing yoga can benefit your digestive system as well. “There are many postures, especially twists, designed to massage the internal organs and keep food moving along,” says Yoga Means Business co-founder and yoga director Jen Kluczkowski. “Easier digestion equals more energy for the body. In yoga, we always twist right first, then left, to follow the path of the digestive system.”

Fights them cravings

Sometimes you can’t help but shovel food into your mouth, especially post-workout when your body is in desperate need of fuel. However, yoga can help build up your defenses against the urge to go overboard. A study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that a steady yoga practice is tied to mindful eating, particularly through breath awareness, which is shown to strengthen the mind-body connection. “The quality of the breath is a direct reflection of what is going on in the body. [Through yoga you learn to read it and work with it],” Genevieve Gilbreath, founder of Herbal Zap L.L.C states.

Improves yo brain function

You may have heard that exercising can improve brain function, but yoga specifically has some particularly very real mental benefits. “Yoga uses the body and breath as tools to create equanimity and clarity in the mind,” says Kluczkowski. “By synching movement with steady, conscious breath, we feel less stress and can better focus. A study in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health found that 20 minutes of Hatha yoga stimulates brain function more than walking or jogging on the treadmill for the same amount of time.”

Boost that immunity!

According to a study published in the journal PLoSOne, yoga has been found to boost immunity at the cellular level through changes in one's gene expression. According to the research, these benefits can be experienced fairly quickly. Also, by simply improving your overall health, yoga is able to strengthen your internal defense system.

Results in hotter sex

Yes, you read that correctly. Time spent on the mat can greatly enhance your time spent tween’ dem sheets. There are a few ways in which yoga can improve your sex life. One, it makes you more flexible—nuff’ said. Two, it helps decrease anxiety and increases body awareness and confidence. Finally, on a physical level, it speeds the release of hormones that boost arousal and increase blood flow to the genital area, which is important for doggy bones. And fellas, you may want to make sure she’s into yoga, too. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found yoga to seriously enhance a woman’s experience in the bedroom via greater lubrication, and more powerful orgasms as a result of strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.

(I mean, do I need to go on after that? Ok.) Well it also Makes you better at your job

“It’s becoming better known that insights, creativity, and ideas only come by giving yourself space and stillness,” says Kluczkowski. “And yoga and meditation are becoming increasingly essential to success in today’s business world. Yoga moves the body, creating physical space and stirring up energy. Then, when we sit in meditation, we observe that energy settle so we feel deep stillness. This extra ‘head space’ leads to better decisions, better work relationships, and increased productivity.” Plus the sex thing if ya know what i mean. Amirite?

Promotes deep relaxation

“One of the biggest benefits of yoga is that it can activate the parasympathetic nervous system,” notes Gilbreath. This offsets the fight-or-flight responses associated with the nervous system. “Yoga also helps to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Most people have too much stress in their lives and thus too much cortisol in their bodies. Excess cortisol can suppress thyroid function, decrease muscle tissue, increase blood pressure, lower immunity, and increase inflammatory responses.” So by regularly practicing yoga you help counteract those effects.
