Why does Yoga benefit so much to your mental and physical health?
Starting with increasing flexibility of your body, strengthening and toning the muscles as well as improving respiration, energy and vitality, the list of health benefits is very long. And one of the best things is, Yoga is truly for everybody! There are so many different types of Yoga which all vary in their intensity and duration, pretty much anybody will find ‘their matching Yoga’.
However, one of the very impressive facts is that doing Yoga over years wont only protect you from injuries and maintain a balanced metabolism, but also gives people a better life quality even in high age. One of the over 90-year-old known Yoga teachers, Tao Porchon-Lynch, has a very simple way to explain where her motivation and power comes from: “The breath of life is right within us, nothing is impossible”. Tao is pure sunshine and teaches people from all over the world in her Yoga classes, books, workshops and retreats the proven benefits of feeling young and living a healthy life.
Nevertheless, Yoga also offers several mental health benefits. The practice of steady breathing and the meditational aspects help to reduce and control stress as well as generally improve the mental well-being. The idea is to create a calm and clear mind, centre the attention into the present moment and become aware of the body. This can help to detect physical problems at an early stage and allow early preventive actions towards them.
So when is the right time to start Yoga? NOW. Truly, it is always the right time to start as this will be the beginning of a journey towards a more vibrant, happy, vital and healthy life. Take a look at your ‘Inhale Yoga Ecuador Tour’ and maybe the powerful, volcanic Andes and equator sunshine will be your perfect start towards a new, better and stronger you.
