Optimal functioning of the musculoskeletal system requires that muscles be in balance in regard to strength and length. When muscles are out of balance, they are either too short and tight or too long and tight. Yoga can help to bring the body back into balance. Through a regular practice you gradually increase the body’s flexibility and build up strength.
When you do Yoga, body and mind are functioning as a team. The Yoga postures are practiced in accordance with the breath, and you become mentally clear and emotionally relaxed while focusing on the moment and being at peace with the body.
And you will feel more at ease, as the new awareness in your joints makes you move with confidence and grace in through daily life.
