Over the past several years, yoga has experienced an upsurge in popularity in the western world among medical professionals and celebrities alike. Yoga is an ancient practice that connects the mind, body, and spirit through body poses, controlled breathing, and meditation.

The practice of yoga has many benefits associated with it, so read below to discover 10 super posh reasons to incorporate yoga in to your fitness program. Enjoy.

1) Yoga is accessible to all, recommended by many respected enthusiasts, and has a wealth of associated benefits. Okay, specifically, Russell Simmons does it and I LOVE him and everything he stands for! See pic above.

2) Yoga is very closely aligned with Posh Lifestyle Solutions’ mission to help our clients improve their lives, through incorporating lifestyle changes, decreasing stress, increasing overall well-being and bringing balance back into lives.

3) Tranquility. The breathing and meditation exercises taught in yoga act as natural tranquilizers, lowering your blood pressure, heart rate and levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It is a natural way to improve many stress-related conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression and even medical conditions such as migraines or asthma.

4) Yoga increases concentration, memory and focus by helping to discipline the mind. I love this benefit!

5) You get to do really cool poses. You can just ‘bust a pose’ anywhere –park, beach, in the line at the grocery store. Okay, maybe not the grocery store.

6) Various yoga poses aid circulation and oxygenation of cells. Who couldn’t use a super oxygenated brain, right?

7) Stamina. Yoga movements and poses improve strength. Poses are designed to impact various muscles and are also said to massage internal organs.

8) You’ll have the flexibility of a baby (that’s a good thing). Those who regularly practice yoga will notice their range of movement increasing and enjoy the benefits of greater mobility and flexibility.

9) You can have the posture of a dancer. By increasing self-awareness, core strength and good postural habits, yoga will help those who practice it regularly to hold themselves better and move with more grace and agility.

10) Boost in Confidence. All of the ways that yoga improves someone’s life encourages self-confidence, self-belief and a more positive outlook.

Now let’s get this yoga party started!!!
