Health Benefits of Yoga

Even though yoga isn’t as trendy as it used to be, it still has numerous health benefits. I like doing yoga when I’m not feeling up to a regular workout or if I’m still sore from a previous workout.

I started doing yoga a couple of years ago and am completely sold.

Benefits of yoga:

  • Helps us learn to listen to our bodies.
  • Increases flexibility and balance.
  • Reduces stress significantly in a short amount of time.
  • Some sources say it can fight depression.
