What are the benefits of yoga?

Yoga is a discipline that combines physical and spiritual exercises. Much more than a simple sport, it is practised as an introduction to well-being and harmony with oneself, others and especially the external environment. Originating in India, it is a practice with a very long history. The benefits of yoga are as follows :

  • Improvement of body image
  • Increased concentration
  • Prevents depression and combats anxiety
  • Develops mindfulness
  • Improves flexibility and balance in the body

Yoga is known for its ability to eliminate stress and promote relaxation. Indeed, numerous studies have shown that it can reduce the secretion of cortisol, the main hormone responsible for stress.

One study demonstrates the powerful effect of yoga on stress by following 24 women who described themselves as ’emotionally unstable’. After a three-month yoga programme, the women had significantly lower cortisol levels. They also had lower levels of stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression.

Another study of 131 people found similar results, showing that ten weeks of yoga helped reduce stress and anxiety. It also helped to improve quality of life and mental health.

Yoga has been shown to be an effective way to control stress. Combining it with meditation and other forms of exercise such as Pilates is beneficial for your mental and physical health!
