Yoga is surely one of the best ways to get fitter, but that shouldn’t be the only reason you do it. Yoga is way more than just a fitness regime: it has a positive effect not only on your body but also on your mind and lifestyle. Here’s why:

It is all about balance:

Yoga creates a balance in your life both physically and mentally. It is not only balance you attain by standing on your toe but it also helps you in acquiring mental peace. If you are running too hard, it will help you slow down and if you are feeling drained, it will help you grab the energy required.
