So what are the benefits of Yoga for Beginners?

If you understand even a little bit of yoga you will know that yoga is not just a physical exercise as it lays emphasis on breathing which other forms of exercise do not. Healing benefits accrue when we control breathing while getting in and out of postures and when postures are held. Yoga movements and postures are so scientific that they help to release accumulated toxins in the body. Once you have mastered yoga postures your body will become so flexible that it will seem to be almost liquid. This flexibility, when achieved through constant practice, makes you feel much younger and stronger.

Yoga opens up your body and mind in a way that no blocks remain in the chakras and the body begins to exist as an organic unity with a rhythm that it creates as its own and which purifies it of toxins and prevents disease. Before you begin yoga, your body and mind resemble a chaotic market place and once you make yoga a part of your life your being will resemble a well-conducted orchestra playing sweet music.
