You already know that yoga improves balance and tones muscles, but the benefits don't stop there! It can increase energy, ease stress, regulate the immune system, help you lose weight, and help you find balance even off the mat.
It may sound like hype from a late-night TV commercial, but research is showing that doing even gentle yoga regularly helps people lose pounds and keep them off.
It's less about sweating off calories than it is about changing behavior and the way the brain reacts to stress. Even if you don't need to lose weight, it never hurts to become more mindful!
