The precise (postures) of yoga work profoundly upon the body, causing blood to circulate deeply rather than just around the periphery of the body, nourishing every organ and softening the muscle and ligament tissue.
It synchronizes your mind and body
Yoga, as we know it is the unification of the mind, the body and the soul.

This brings the mind and the body in harmony. Yoga can help you to feel more stable and rooted in the here and now.
