6 REASONS WHY MSers SHOULD DO YOGA

Yoga, often considered a languid non-sport or a hippie workout by many, may surprise you with its ability to strengthen, tone, rehabilitate and de-stress. The fact is, yoga is for everyone and it can help enhance virtually every aspect of your life.
1. Yoga is arguably the best workout for cross training
There are a lot of physical benefits to yoga and regular sessions will absolutely improve your motor skills. But yoga, above all, helps improve balance and flexibility, making it the perfect cross training workout for every sport. The routine stretching that extends to an hour or more at your own pace helps prevent injury that may be caused by overworked muscles or lack of conditioning.
2. It complements physical therapy
Studies show that yoga aids treatments to arthritis, blood pressure, back pains, carpal tunnel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, insomnia and more. Yoga to a body is like oil to a machine – it keeps the body from being rusty and keeps it running in smoothly.
3. It increases your mental focus
Breathing exercises, meditation and the concentration involved in holding asanas help build mental clarity and focus. Stress begins in the mind, and this is what yoga helps to eliminate.

4. It helps cleanse you, inside and out
An hour everyday cleanses out the body’s toxins through sweat and conscious breathing techniques.
5. It boosts energy
A good yoga session is better than several cups of coffee. Contrary to popular belief, correct breathing is something to be learned – and it’s what you get from yoga.
6. It makes you look your bestYoga conditions the body and helps rid of your toxins – therefore, a regular practice will help clear skin, sculpt your body and improve your posture.
