The benefit of yoga practice goes far beyond the actual time you spend in the poses for living healthy. One of the most general reasons why people have begun turning to yoga is to improve their health and well-being. Yoga means coming together. It is a unification of the mind; body and breath, so all aspects of your life are affected by your practice. A major benefit of yoga is physical. Yoga improves your flexibility. The stretching which you do in during every practice session helps extend and stretch muscles, which helps reduce the risk of injuries.
