7 benefits for you

Lately, YOGA has become increasingly popular in Romania - it is practiced in specialized studios, at the gym or even at home. View photos or videos of a star or a friend. Even men are now attracted to this ”trend”.

But behind the "trend" there are dozens of reasons why practicing YOGA is right for anyone who is curious to try it.

If you are a yoga enthusiast, you may have already noticed some of the benefits - maybe you sleep better or get less colds or you feel more relaxed and like yourself
.
However, if you want to start practicing yoga and need advice, the coaches at MAHA YOGA Studio can help you. I have also prepared for you some benefits of yoga practice:

1. Improves flexibility
Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga. In time, you will notice a gradual release and eventually the initially seemingly impossible positions will become possible.

2. Builds muscle strength
Strong muscles not only look good - they also protect us from conditions such as arthritis or back pain. And when you build your strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility. If you only go to the gym and lift weights, you might build your strength at the expense of flexibility.

3. Increases lymph drainage and immunity
When you contract and stretch muscles for yoga postures, lymph drainage (a viscous fluid rich in immune cells) increases. This helps the lymphatic system to fight infection, destroy cancer cells and eliminate toxic waste products from cell function.

4. It makes you happier
Studies have found that constant yoga practice has improved depression, led to significant increases in serotonin levels and decreased levels of monoamine oxidase (an enzyme that breaks down neurotransmitters) and cortisol.

5. Involves a healthy lifestyle
Exercise more, eat less - this is the adage of many. Yoga can help on both fronts. A common practice causes you to move and burn calories, and the spiritual and emotional dimensions of your practice can encourage you to tackle any eating and weight issues on a deeper level. Also, yoga can help you eat more consciously.

6.Helps you focus
An important component of yoga is the focus on the present. Studies have found that regular yoga practice improves coordination, reaction time, memory and even IQ scores.
People who practice transcendental meditation demonstrate the ability to solve problems, acquire and recall information better - probably because they are less distracted by their thoughts, which can play again as an endless loop.

7.Helps with a deeper sleep
Yoga can provide relief from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Restoration asana, yoga nidra (a form of guided relaxation), Savasana, pranayama and meditation encourage pratyahara, an inward turn of the senses, which ensures the stopping time for the nervous system.
Slowly, you will feel all these benefits and how your body, soul and mind create the balance you have long sought.

We are waiting for you at MAHA YOGA STUDIO to choose the right style for you.
Namaste!
