September is National Yoga Month, a national observance designated by the Department of Health & Human Services to educate Americans about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire a healthy lifestyle.
If you haven’t already discovered all of the wonderful health benefits yoga can offer, now is the perfect time to start. Through deep breathing, movement, meditation, and relaxation, yoga can improve your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Yoga has been proven to treat numerous health conditions and chronic diseases, not limited to asthma, ADHD, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, MS and osteoporosis. Plus, research shows that yoga is effective in reducing body weight, blood pressure and high cholesterol.
If that isn’t enough to get you into a downward facing dog, yoga has also been shown to decrease depression, anxiety and stress while increasing feelings of well-being and optimism. Physically, regular yoga practice can improve muscle strength, endurance and flexibility while also alleviating chronic pain.
In honor of National Yoga Month, I will be posting new videos on my youtube channel and sharing more on yoga philosophy and benefits on my Facebook page. Stay tuned…
