The word yoga means “union” between the mind, body and spirit. People do yoga for many different reasons: physical, mental, psychological, spiritual, etc. There are many benefits to yoga that work very well in conjunction with chiropractic and massage therapies.
Yoga is preventative and reparative to the body by improving flexibility, strength, muscle tone, pain prevention, posture, alignment, and better breathing. It also has wonderful benefits to the mind by increasing mental calmness, relaxation, stress reduction and body awareness. It increases the lubrication of joints, ligaments and tendons of the body. Studies suggest that Yoga is the only form of physical activity that provides complete exercise to the body, because it massages all the internal organs and glands. This in turn reduces the risk of many diseases. Yoga can create a positive permanent difference to the lifestyle of anybody practicing it on a regular basis. Yoga is the perfect way to ensure overall health and physical fitness.
