There’s a good reason why yoga has been around for so long; it’s one of the best ways to nurture our minds and bodies, as well as bolster our spirit. It’s also a scientifically proven way to mitigate stress and anxieties. With all those benefits there’s really no excuse to not pick up yoga and integrate it into your daily routine!
Bali in particular is home to some of the best yoga instructors in the world. It would not be an overstatement to dub the island of the Gods as the island of healing as well. Yoga studios are readily accessible in many parts of the island including Seminyak, Sanur and Canggu.
Now, with that said, if those reasons above weren’t enough to convince you, here are some more scientifically proven reasons to take up yoga.
Improve heart health
Considering how hard our heart works to pump blood throughout our system everyday, it’s imperative that we maintain the health of this vital organ. Yoga has been proven to fortify our heart health and minimize the progression of many major heart diseases by lowering blood pressure and managing cholesterol.
Effective stress management
Our brains are an incredible feat of biology. However, despite their heroic roles in our daily lives, our brains can get fatigued from accumulated stress. A simple yoga routine in the morning or evening can rejuvenate our brains and manage our stress levels significantly.
Get better sleep
Something we mammals all share in common is the need for a good night’s sleep. The stretches and poses practiced in yoga helps loosen the muscles and joints, reducing tension and allowing the body to feel more relaxed when we turn in for the night.
