Have you ever tried to focus on a task and found yourself drifting off on thoughts from the mind or getting distracted easily?

Research has shown that doing yoga regularly will help you get more things done, as your ability to focus and concentrate on tasks is improved hugely.

Yoga Postures, while appearing to deal with the physical body alone, actually influence the chemical balance of the brain, which in turn improves one’s mental state of being.

The purpose of yoga is to work both the mind and body. Yoga postures, for example, simultaneously calm and stimulate the brain. These postures activate and stimulate vital organs by supplying fresh blood to the brain, making it alert but relaxed.

Yogic exercises cater to the needs of each individual according to his or her specific needs and physical condition. In yoga, each cell is observed, attended to, and provided with a fresh supply of blood, allowing it to function smoothly.

However, unhealthy bodies tend to have inert, dull, and sluggish minds. It is the practice of yoga which removes this sluggishness from the body and brings it to the level of the active mind. Ultimately, both the body and mind rise to the level of the illuminated self.
