10 Ways Yoga Can Change Your Life
I think that if you ask most people who are practising yogis, has Yoga changed your life? They will answer with a definite YES!
Maybe it’s because of the connection with the breath which is the essence of this ancient art form. Yoga is a simple concept and yet it can allow you to clear your mind and de-clutter your thinking so you can enjoy the benefits of mindfulness and positive thinking instead. Of course both mindfulness and positive thinking are directly linked to your happiness.
But what else? Yoga can take you on the path towards happiness and improve your thinking but what are the other benefits one might expect from a regular practice?
