Yoga is a therapy for the mind and the body. Practicing yoga daily can help alleviate everyday tensions, stresses and ailments.

Yoga can help slow down the aging process. Wonder what the secret to looking young is as you look at famous celebrities like Goldie Hawn, Madonna and Sting, it isn't plastic surgery it is yoga. The aging process is a brought on by autointoxication of our minds and bodies. Get started with yoga to help keep your body clean and improve your flexibility which will keep your joints lubricated and this will slow the catabolic process which is the deterioration of the cells. While yoga will not reverse the aging process it will slow it down.

Practicing yoga on a regular basis can help alleviate the symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure, and digestive disorders, arthritis, chronic fatigue, asthma and heart conditions to name a few. This has been scientifically proven with laboratory tests showing that yogis (people that practice yoga) have an increased ability to consciously control their body's involuntary functions such as their body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure.

Medical scientists' state the reason that yoga therapies are so effective is due to the balance that is creates in the nervous and endocrine systems and these two systems have a direct influence on every other organ and system in the body. Yoga practices are seen as being a both preventive and curative because it helps to restore balance in the mind body and spirit.

Yoga is being studied more and more by scientists and physicians due to the fact that is has been shown to relieve symptoms of multiple common and life threatening ailments. For example one of the best treatments for arthritis pain is yoga because if helps to strengthen joints and surrounding muscles and tendons as well as flexibility which is key to fighting the stiffness and inflammation associated with arthritis pain.

Medically it does not stop there, yoga can also help with asthma, breathing problems, high blood pressure, pain management, and weight management. Practicing yoga daily can help you psychologically as well. Improving our mental calmness and clarity, improve your body awareness, relieve your chronic stress, help relax your mind and will help you center your mind and improve concentration and self control.

Those are only the beginning of the benefits of yoga. If you stay with it and practice daily over time you will notice that you have more self discipline, more self control and an increase in your determination and these three traits will flow into every aspect of your life. All you have to do is get started and it will all fall into place. You'll wonder why you didn't start sooner and you will notice that you do not get stressed out and when stressful situations present themselves you deal with them with ease.
