Health Benefits of Yoga

yogathumbI’ve recently begun to practice Vinyasa Flow yoga, going a couple of times during the week for hour and a half classes and awakening my body to its old flexibility and strength. Given how great I’ve been feeling every time I leave class, I’ve been wondering of late what the actual health benefits are. Some quick research has revealed a host of them, and as you may have guessed, I’m going to share them here. Perhaps this post will alert those who have not taken a yoga class as to unexpected benefits, or simply confirm that what current practitioners already know, but either way, I hope you find it as fascinating an array as I do!
