At the physical level, Yoga has proven to be extremely effective in:

  • Increasing Flexibility – yoga uses positions that act upon the various joints of the body including some joints that are rarely exercised or stretched in everyday life

  • Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons – yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body, including ones that may be stiff or underused.

  • Massaging of ALL Organs of the Body – Yoga is perhaps the only form of activity which massages all the internal glands and organs of the body in a thorough manner, including those – such as the prostate - that hardly get externally stimulated during our entire lifetime. Yoga acts in a wholesome manner on the various body parts. This stimulation and massage of the organs in turn benefits us by keeping away disease and providing a forewarning at the first possible instance of a likely onset of disease or disorder. 

  • Complete Detoxification – By gently stretching muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs, yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This helps in the flushing out of toxins from every nook and cranny as well as providing nourishment up to the last point. This leads to benefits such as delayed ageing, energy and a remarkable zest for life.

  • Excellent toning of the muscles – Muscles that have become flaccid or weak or are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess flab and flaccidity.

But these enormous physical benefits are just one of the benefits of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body, and the results can be fantastic. Yoga through relaxation and meditation works remarkably well to achieve this harmony and helps the mind work in sync with the body. How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the confusions and conflicts in our mind weigh down heavily upon us? Moreover, stress which affects all parts of our physical, endocrinal and emotional systems can be corrected through the wonderful practice of Yoga.
