The benefits of yoga are beyond the limit. I practice yoga for the pat 3 years to control the stress, depression and anxiety problems I face in my daily life. The main benefit of yoga is, it brings down stress and enhances powers of relaxation and Infuses a sense of balance and internal harmony.
Well said about them here.


As I shrugged off the last remnants of PTSD last year, I was studying to become a yoga teacher (course now complete). I blog about both yoga and PTSD, because I know that movement and connection of the breath and mind to body movements really helped me while I was going through the healing process. :)
