If you have been practicing yoga for a while, you might have noticed certain benefits; your mind, body and soul are at peace and balanced. If you have never tried yoga, I highly recommend starting. It does not have to be done every single to notice the benefits. I personally do it when I feel to tired for cardio or when it gets too late and I miss the gym opening hours. It does burn calories and it’s not easy, but thinking of its relaxing side, I do not go into it stressed. But after each session, I can already see the following benefits:
- clearer mind
- tenser muscles
- improved physical and mental balance
- feeling calmer and more focused
- feeling more confident & having increased self esteem
- improving the posture & flexibility

I’ve never done yoga but it sounds like something I ought to do. I really need a way to exercise my body and calm my mind.
I used to do yoga in high school and really enjoyed it, but now in my “adult” life I feel like I don’t have time to “sit still.” The benefits of yoga are great, and I think I’ll try to catch a few classes in the future again!
Great post as always! I can tell you that after taking an unintended break from my practice, yoga for sure helps me to keep my mind clear and focused.
I have never tried yoga, even if I am really curious about it. Do you do it all by yourself or is necessary to attend some classes?
I always did it at home watching videos on YouTube. I thought of going to a class with an instructor, but for now it was just a thought 😛

I’ve been wanting to start practicing yoga for quite some time now and after this post I think I finally will!
I’ve only tried yoga once and my muscles were aching for one week after that… Since then, I didn’t have the courage to try it again.
