September is National Yoga Awareness Month and the goal is to educate the general public about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire individuals to live a healthy lifestyle.

Yoga has many positive effects on the human body. By practicing yoga, people can not only improve their outer appearances and confidence through exercise, but can also ensure that they are taking the steps necessary to keep their bodies healthy.

Yoga has many benefits, which include:

  • Increased flexibility

  • Improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • Weight reduction
  • Cardio and circulatory health
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Protection from injury

Yoga is considered a safe and effective form of relaxation and exercise for most adults, but it is always important to talk to your doctor before beginning any new fitness regimen. Make sure that the difficulty level of the yoga class is appropriate for you.
