10 Reasons to practice Yoga

Yoga isn’t just a physical exercise program. It is a scientific system designed to generate greater clarity and harmony in life. With a regular practice, individuals often notice a stronger, slimmer and more flexible body, in addition to a mentally sharper, more patient and relaxed sense of self. Many health and fitness programs are dif-ficult to maintain because they are rooted in an overall negative attitude - that you are inadequate and need to “fix” yourself. Negativity is a lousy motivator. Yoga, on the other hand, meets you exactly where you are and does not judge. By practicing yoga you have the opportunity to improve your health with a positive, non-forceful approach. A regular yoga practice is a journey to a healthier body and happier life. Give it a try today!
