Hello Nina,

Yoga combines physical, mental and spiritual disciplines to achieve peacefulness of body and mind. It can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function.

It improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength. Yoga is a good beginning form of exercise, especially for individuals who have been inactive.

Yoga can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. It might also help alleviate chronic conditions, such as depression, pain, anxiety and insomnia.
