The ancient practice of yoga can provide a retreat from the chaos of life, says Harvard Medical School.
Yoga’s goal is to challenge yourself physically without feeling overwhelmed. The practice has been noted to provide both mental and physical benefits.
These benefits include:
- A better body image.
- Mindful eating habits.
- Reduced tension, stress and anxiety.
- Increased physical fitness.
If you have any health concerns about your ability to practice yoga, check with your doctor before starting a program.
