What Can Be Gained By the Practice of Yoga?




Some of us yogis and yoginis were chatting after Yoga class about the benefits of practicing Yoga for years. Of course, I’ve been practicing for years on my own and it probably translates onto the yoga mat, but I feel like I am the perpetual student, as with each Yoga sequence you learn something new about yourself; your body, mind and soul.

Of course, the benefits of Yoga are experienced from day one. A calmer persona, more relaxed and possibly in a better frame of mind to deal with the world at large.

Yoga can definitely improve the body. I’ve seen that in many people who committed themselves to practicing Yoga 2-3 times a week. But also, Yoga can transform one’s entire being and approach to life in general.

Aside from the physical benefits, Yoga can heal the mind and emotions. It can center and ground oneself in positive ways.

Yes, it can take literally years to master one pose, but the benefits start from day one.
