Originating from India, yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body; it incorporates breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to encourage relaxation and reduce stress. International Day of Yoga, celebrated each year on 21st June, aims to raise awareness worldwide of the benefits of practising yoga.
The benefits of practising yoga are far reaching and can postively impact on both physical and mental health. It is well known for its ability to decrease stress levels, promote relaxation and help with anxiety. Studies suggest yoga can reduce inflammation in the body, lower blood pressure and be beneficial for the health of the heart by decreasing risk factors for heart disease.

Flexibility, balance and strength can be greatly imporved with regular practice as can breathing and lung function.
