Yoga focuses on breathing, strength, and flexibility and is one of the oldest spiritual, physical, and mental practice forms. It incorporates meditation, breathing exercises, and poses designed to reduce stress and encourage relaxation. The goal of this meditation discipline is to attain tranquillity in both spirit and mind.
Studies have shown that yoga decreases the secretion of cortisol, the primary hormone responsible for stress. Regularly practicing yoga helps clear your mind, calms you, and increases concentration. It also increases body awareness.
Research has also found that practicing may improve your sleep quality, improve social function, enhance spiritual well-being, and reduce anxiety and depression symptoms of anxiety in cancer patients. Yoga also enhances cardio and circulatory health.
