New Benefits of Yoga
Yoga teaches us mental and physical discipline. I would like to encourage you to do yoga and I want to give you some scientifically proven information.
What are the benefits of daily yoga practice for our mind and body?
1. Yoga for chronic pain relief.
A study was conducted in 2005, in which yoga sessions were organized for a group of participants with knee arthritis.
The yoga sessions continued regularly. The study found that as participants’ physical activity increased, their pain was reduced and they were able to rely on painkillers less and less.
The scientists concluded that yoga can help the muscles heal and that people who do yoga use fewer painkillers.
2. Yoga helps increase lung capacity
Yoga includes breathing exercises. It helps participants control their breathing, and helps to minimize the effects of asthma and some other lung diseases.
3. It Protects the Spine
When you are a beginner, it is impossible to do all yoga poses. It is very important to start yoga classes from the beginner level and prepare your body for the more advanced poses.
You will see that gradually you can easily do some poses that seem impossible to do in the first lesson. This is because the body stretches as you continue to do yoga practice and your spinal posture improves.
A bad posture means you have an unhealthy spine. This can cause muscle and joint diseases in your later life but can be alleviated and prevented through yoga.
4. Yoga helps improve your concentration.
Concentration is the secret of productivity and creativity in life. With the daily life, we live in and the stress factor increasing day by day, we can’t focus and pay attention to the subjects we want. Yoga helps us to solve this basic problem.
5. Yoga teaches you self-compassion.
When you do yoga with a positive attitude, you will realize that you are an important part of something big. These practices help you find inner peace and will teach you to forgive.
6. You can maintain weight control with yoga.
Yoga is not only meditation but also an exercise that works certain muscles. For this reason, you can tighten your body with yoga, and automatically you may find yourself losing some weight.
7. You can streamline your digestive system.
Yoga includes many poses. In some of them, you have to curl. These movements massage the internal organs and aid digestion.
8. Yoga minimizes depression and anxiety.
Problems at work, negative things in our social life that make us sleepless, financial concerns. These types of problems put us under pressure. Meditation helps us deal with these worries.

Twilight is considered the best time of the day so that you can fill your body with special energy such as sunset and sunrise. If you don’t have time to do this, find the best time for you;
You can start the day by filling your body with positive energy in the morning, or you can do it in the evening to relax after a stressful day. Avoid focus-stealing traps! For this reason, do not eat or drink during yoga. Drink water before or after the session to stay hydrated. Do not wear clothes that will restrict your movements.
Choose airy and comfortable clothes. Do yoga in the same place constantly because when the mind gets used to routines, it focuses more on what it does.
You can listen to relaxing music in the background if you want. All you need is to get a mobile app that you like or yoga videos suitable for beginners.
Remember to love yourself whatever the circumstances.
Buddha said; “you as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection’’
