Health Benefits of Yoga

By | source: May 22nd, 2012

Yoga has quickly become a fad form of fitness. Yoga mats are seen everywhere, including Whole Foods Grocery Store and hip (and expensive) brands such as Lululemon sell high end yoga clothes that committed yogis are willing to shell out the big bucks for. The craze is seen very heavily in my city of Austin, Texas and amazingly the Black Swan Yoga Studio is able to run soley on donations. While my mother was urging me to do yoga ages ago, it is now my prefered form of exercise. Actually, aside from a semester of intense ballet which is long over and the occiasional run, it is my only form of exercise, but this infographic makes it seem worth it.

Todays infographic highlights the many health benefits of practicing yoga. Yoga is a great form of stress relief, aids in cicrulation, reduces the risk of cancer and lowers the risk of heart disease, among many other benefits. It is so important to live a happy and healthy life and yoga helps you get there. Do you practice yoga? Can you feel the physical, mental and health benefits? [ Via]
