Yoga is a form of hands-on training that uses your own body weight to help strengthen your core, arms, legs, and back.Compared with weight-bearing muscle training with barbells or dumbbells in the gym, it focuses more on the coordination of multiple muscles rather than the contraction of a single muscle.

In addition, yoga focuses on exhaling and slow movements to increase fluid flow and warm up the muscles, and each time the body advects in the "balance" process of a certain posture, it can increase muscle endurance.Therefore, yoga can exercise the body's muscle strength and muscle endurance at the same time, help us increase the body's elasticity, strength and balance, and make the body more coordinated and sensitive to the activities of daily life.

improve breathing

Most people usually use only 10-15% of their lung capacity to breathe, but yoga breathing can help us inhale air more completely and thoroughly through many techniques, especially the three-stage breathing method.The most common of these is the "abdominal breathing method", which is also commonly known as "deep breathing". Compared with ordinary deep breathing, there are more diaphragm movements, which allow us to increase the inhaled air more effectively, help restore the function of the diaphragm and improve Breathability, enhance lung function.

Although our breathing pattern cannot fully use abdominal breathing, through continuous breathing practice, the movement of the diaphragm becomes a habit, increasing the depth of breathing time and time again, and slowly increasing lung capacity, which is the benefit that yoga can bring to us. It can also make our lungs healthier.

Cardiovascular health

Improve immune system function

If you do yoga regularly, you can speed up the body's blood circulation, improve your metabolism, and improve your immunity. The reason behind it is that doing yoga can "stimulate the secretion of the thymus gland."The thymus is the center of cellular immunity in the body. Its main function is to regulate the proportion of T lymphocytes and secrete thymus hormones, so that the body maintains cellular immune function and kills foreign bacteria.Yoga's "asana" and "breathing" both have the function of stimulating the thymus, thereby improving the body's immunity.

In addition, exercise itself can increase immune cells. After exercise, during the period when the number of white blood cells increases, it is beneficial for the body to eliminate invading pathogenic microorganisms.Through long-term and regular exercise or yoga practice, we can find that the body's immune function is enhanced, and finally gradually improve the function of the immune system.
