Benefits of Yoga

The practice is a prescription for radiant health.

The ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve total harmony inside and out — aligning the body, mind and soul not only with each other, but also the entire Universe.

However, this state of abiding wholeness and union is not easy to achieve. And when we are broken physically, emotionally, or mentally, that spiritual quest is made even more difficult.

That’s why the yoga practice prescribes things that help bring about radiant health — like yoga poses, breath work, mantras, meditation, and ethical rules and values to guide our behavior.  In turn, these practices help heal us externally and internally.

HEALING INSIDE & OUT

Our physical and emotional health directly impacts our spiritual health.  If our bodies and minds are free of aches and pains, then we face less distractions, and have less burdens to carry, during our pursuit of inner peace and higher endeavors.

While yoga has been practiced on the Indian subcontinent for millennia, it’s only been in the last few decades that Western scientists have taken a serious look at it.  Their inescapable conclusion — that yoga is good for you.
