Why Yoga Is Good For You

Radiant Health

The ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve total harmony inside and out, aligning not only the different parts of yourself with each other, but also the entire Universe.

This state of Self-Realization — being one with all of Creation — is not easy to achieve.  It’s a task that’s made even more difficult when we are broken physically, mentally or emotionally.

Through the ages, wise yogis have come to realize that our physical health directly impacts our spiritual health.  That’s why they prescribed things like yoga poses, breath work, mantras, meditation, and ethical rules and values to guide our behavior.  These are practices to heal us externally and internally.

When our bodies and minds are in pain, they will distract us from our spiritual quest.  But when they are in good health, we will have less burdens to carry during our pursuit of inner peace and higher endeavors.

Yoga has been practiced on the Indian subcontinent for millennia, and its benefits are widely accepted.  But over the last few decades that Western scientists have also come to the inescapable conclusion that yoga is good for you.
