Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.
The main components of yoga are postures – a series of movements designed to increase physical activity – especially strength, flexibility, balance and breathing.
Many people simply enjoy doing yoga for fun! However, there is evidence that regular yoga is beneficial for people with:
- high blood pressure and/or risk of heart disease
- too much body fat
- aches and pains – including lower back pain
- stress, depression & mental wellbeing.
