Which are the benefits of Yoga?
BODY. Through a series of exercises, the practice of Yoga helps you communicate with your body, including where to work to improve their own physical well-being. The positions (Asana) stretch and contract the muscle bands going to stimulate and relax the body. Increase blood circulation not only in the muscle but also glands, nervous, visceral and encouraging joint operation. Slow, deep breathing accompanies the movements of Asanas, calming the nervous system and bringing tranquility. Buy healthy body, force, physical strength and grace.
MIND. The breath control (Pranayama) and the practice of Asana will help relax tensions and increase the concentration (Dharana), gradually decreasing the thoughts. The mind, freed from his automatisms, light becomes. The ability to get in the game and try some higher intensity exercise increases strength and determination, helping to overcome the fears and obstacles of everyday life and the bad habits.
SPIRIT. Develops an awareness of the interrelationship between the emotional dimension, physical and mental, and, of how a disturbance in any one of these levels affects others. Gradually this awareness leads to an understanding of the more subtle areas of themselves. Meditation (Dhyana) leads the practitioner to come into contact with its deepest part, the self.
