“Derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means ‘to join’, yoga is a combination of mental, physical and spiritual practices that, when woven together, deliver a potent dose of wellbeing.”
You don’t have to be a ‘yogi’ to experience the benefits of yoga, just 15 minutes (we’ll add the extra two on don’t worry!) can help rewire your brain and improve your mood. And you don’t need any specific equipment – just space, and peace and quiet…
If you still need more reasons why yoga is good for you, here are 17…
One: Improves flexibility
Two: Improves mobility
Three: Corrects posture
Four: Builds core strength
Five: Supports heart health
Six: Can aid weight loss
Seven: Increase energy levels
Eight: Encourages self-awareness
Nine: Improves sleep
Ten: Learn new breathing techniques
Eleven: Be more mindful
Twelve: Improve concentration
Thirteen: Give you more clarity of thought
Fourteen: Help with chronic pain
Fifteen: Reduce anxiety
Sixteen: Strengthen lower back (reduce pain)
Seventeen: Learn meditation
The best part of yoga (in my opinion) is the relaxation at the end – don’t miss this out! And take the last two minutes to just lie back and relax a bit more.
