Recent surveys reveal that millions of Americans regularly do yoga in fitness clubs, schools, prisons, churches, YMCAs, senior centers, retreats and living rooms. With its origin over 4000 years ago in India, yoga has spiked in popularity in the United States because of its multiple proven benefits. Yoga strengthens the body, improves the posture, increases flexibility and balance, and creates inner and outer calm through deep breathing and holding poses. With regular yoga, we breathe better. We sleep better.
We feel better. And, better still, the effects of practicing yoga are relatively immediate. While the physical benefits of yoga are well documented, yoga may also yield psychological benefits by cultivating greater body and mind awareness, increasing self-control
over thoughts and emotions, and providing opportunity for self-reflection and spiritual inquiry.
