5 Reasons Yoga Makes You Happier

June 21, 2012

  1. Yoga relaxes the body and the mind.  It helps you focus on the experience, preventing the mind jumping around and becoming anxious about the future or the past.  It encourages you to focus on the present moment, the most important moment and enjoy it.
  2. It surrounds you with like-minded people, people who are positive and happy, making you feel happier. You have no doubt felt how draining it can be to be in the company of negative people.
  3. The less intense forms of yoga like Hatha yoga give your body the opportunity to restore itself from the stresses and strains of daily life.  Attending just one class a week can help balance your life and make you feel more grounded.
  4. It teaches you how to bring more energy into your day by concentrating on your breathing for a few moments.
  5. Yoga encourages you to be kind to yourself and dedicate a little time towards caring for yourself.  This sense of inner joy can be addictive. Yoga teaches you to  accept you, love yourself and  respect your mind and body.
