Yoga is considered a science, not a religion. Yoga is an ancient art based on a unifying system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. The consistent practice of yoga will lead to a sense of peace and well-being as yoga teaches us to respond to stressors in a more positive way. Physically, the practice of yoga makes the body both strong and flexible. Yoga improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. Yoga brings about emotional stability and clarity of mind.
These are only a handful of the many benefits.
