Yoga is helping to strengthen your body and be more flexible when you practise regularly. Your body is meant to be in motion. A lot. Motion is lotion. And in today’s society often we are sitting still a lot of our waking hours. Maybe with a job sitting behind a desk with a computer all day. What happens when not moving is that your body gets used to this. And you will eventually loose your strength and your flexibility.
By doing yoga everyday you tell your body this is the normal. To use your body, to stretch and bend, to do static or dynamic poses to build your core, to build your muscles in arms and legs, the whole body. And the best of all, you also strengthen your mind.
In brief. Use your body or you will loose your flexibility and strength. Take care of your body and it will reward you with lasting longer.
Wish you the best. Take care. Namaste.
