There are many awesome reasons to love yoga and make it part of your daily routine!

I was first exposed to yoga when I took a hot yoga class for a college course.

It was an amazing experience, and even though I now dislike hot yoga, I love other forms of it.

Take a look at some of these convincing reasons to love yoga and I bet you'll be inspired!2

1. It Clears the Mind of Clutter

One of the amazing reasons to love yoga and make it a daily practice, is that it clears your mind of clutter.

The noise and craziness of daily life can prevent you from taking time to breathe and relax your mind and just simply focus on nothing.

Because our culture incorrectly equates business with importance, taking a break to reflect on just breathing and being alive is great way to center yourself and collect your thoughts.

2. It Detoxes Your Organs

Certain movements and poses in yoga mildly detoxify your organs and relieve pressure in your spine, as well as increase your flexibility.

These movements generally consist of twisting your upper body with a stable hip region.3

Regular yoga practice equals healthier functioning organs!

3. Improves Strength and Flexibility

Yoga is also wonderful for physical fitness.

It works your body as a whole, strengthening core, leg and arm muscles.

If you have tight hamstrings, yoga provides the means for you to loosen them up and gain flexibility, which is something we all need.

If not for any other reason, yoga helps you achieve your well-rounded fitness goals!

4. Lowers Blood Pressure, Reduces Anxiety

The rhythmic, deep breathing technique practiced in yoga has shown to reduce anxiety and thus, blood pressure because excess stress hormones aren't being released.2

The amazing thing is that breathing techniques learned in yoga can be practiced anywhere at any time.

It is especially beneficial when a stressful moment arises because you will be equipped with the proper way to lower your heart rate and stress levels!
