Yoga has long been touted for its physical and mental health benefits. Research has shown that yoga produces significant decreases in blood pressure among individuals with hypertension. Yoga may also lower excess blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes and improve lipid profiles of individuals with coronary artery disease. These benefits, coupled with its well-known ability to reduce stress, make practicing yoga an excellent choice to stave off chronic cardiovascular disease.

In terms of mental health, the benefits of yoga revolve primarily around the concept of mindfulness. Yogis learn to focus their awareness on the body and build mental resilience, which enables them to naturally exercise more control over their emotions. In addition to developing a more healthy body image, yoga practitioners often become more mindful of their eating habits and improve their diets as a result.
