What Happens When You Practice Yoga Continuously For A Year? Yoga literally stands for union.
And union in the context of uniting body, mind and soul. Body and mind is easy to perceive and discuss and ergo most focus is centered around these components of yoga.Styles of yoga are experiences of specific masters along the lines of their method to progression into this unification.
Yoga is not just confined to weight loss and losing tummy fat. It is also known to have holistic benefits.There have been several benefits: much better sleep, better self-regulation during stressful times.
Continuous practice of yoga helps in muscle development, improves posture and refreshes the mind. It further helps develop concentration and sharpens the memory.
Basically you will notice an all round development – physically, mentally and spiritually.
Improves your flexibility
Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga. During your first class, you probably won’t be able to touch your toes, never mind do a backbend. But if you stick with it, you’ll notice a gradual loosening, and eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become possible.
Protects your spine
Spinal disks—the shock absorbers between the vertebrae that can herniate and compress nerves—crave movement. That’s the only way they get their nutrients.
Builds muscle strength
Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility.
Betters your bone health
Lowers blood sugar
Yoga lowers blood sugar and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and boosts HDL (“good”) cholesterol. In people with diabetes, yoga has been found to lower blood sugar in several ways: by lowering cortisol and adrenaline levels, encouraging weight loss, and improving sensitivity to the effects of insulin.
