There are many reasons why Yoga teachers see good healthy students.

Pain relief: Yoga students state they took less pain killers and experienced reduced pain associated with PMS, back problems, and many forms of chronic pain.

Circulation of fluids and blood: Yoga asanas aid blood circulation and oxygenation of cells.

Posture for a healthier skeleton: By increasing awareness of good posture, yoga help the space between the joints, which increases the length of joint capsules. This prevents excessive wear on the skeletal structure.

Stamina: Hatha Yoga Surya Namaskar movements improve overall strength. These specific asanas were sequenced to develop every muscle in the body and to keep the heart healthy.

All forms of Yoga reduce stress-related conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression and even medical conditions such as migraine or asthma.

Increased Lung Capacity: Pranayama creates calmer, deeper, and a slower breathing pace.
