Born in India thousands of years ago, today Yoga is considered a true philosophy of life. Practicing it can help us, in fact, to find a balance between body, mind and spirit.
First, it stimulates the nervous system, helping to restore calm. This ancient discipline helps to reduce stress, can be a panacea against headaches and promotes sleep (improving its quality). Some yoga positions are, in fact, particularly suitable for those who suffer from insomnia. This discipline teaches how to breathe correctly, in a deeper and more conscious way. In the philosophy of yoga, in fact, the breath is the most important means of exchange between ourselves and the surrounding environment.
Yoga makes us more flexible in our movements, helps keep our muscles more toned and is good for the heart as it is effective in preventing cardiovascular disease.
This discipline also acts on one's self-esteem, improving it, and on mood disorders. Some studies have proven that even depression can be treated through the practice of yoga and more generally through meditation.
Yoga can be practiced at any age.
