Benefits of Yoga

Yoga delivers a host of benefits, strengthening your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Providing strength and flexibility benefits for the whole-body, yoga also improves your mental health through mindfulness. Regular practice promotes self-reflection and emotional regulation, delivering a holistic workout for your mind, body, and soul.

Holistic Benefits of Yoga

No other form of exercise offers the same holistic benefits as yoga. Uniquely positioned to improve every aspect of your life, yoga increases physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Iyengar Yoga, the style we teach here at Infuse Health, is the most accessible form of yoga, using props to help you get the most benefit from your practice. 

We’re committed to helping everyone take advantage of the many health benefits of regular yoga practice, which includes:

      • improved strength and physical fitness;
      • increased flexibility and movement; 
      • relaxation and sense of peace; 
      • enhanced balance in all areas of life;
      • a boost in focus and concentration.

Wondering how yoga can deliver all those benefits? Here’s a taste of how regular yoga practice can transform your life.


Practicing yoga increases your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, delivering a genuine full-body workout. In addition, physiologists agree that yoga provides benefits well beyond flexibility and relaxation, improving physical fitness across a range of domains. Growing research shows that regular yoga practice improves strength, balance, aerobic capacity, and lung function, enhancing overall physical health, fitness and wellbeing.

Yoga for Flexibility & Movement

With its emphasis on body positioning and lengthening, yoga is the perfect way to increase flexibility in everyone. Regular yoga practice can help prevent muscle soreness by releasing the buildup of lactic acid that leads to muscle pain and fatigue. Yoga also brings harmony and balance to all muscle groups, helping them work together to increase movement and flexibility. It’s clear that regular yoga practice improves flexibility and movement in all areas of life.

Yoga for Relaxation

While it’s important to hold your pose in yoga, it’s just as important to calm your mind and control your breathing. Concentrating on your thoughts and breathing helps you relax more deeply, connect to yourself and balance your mind. Amid the stress and strain of modern life, finding a way to relax and centre yourself is a vital skill, helping you become more confident, make better decisions and deal with the stress of everyday life.

Practicing yoga unites your body, mind, and spirit, bringing you into total balance. From a physical perspective, yoga increases strength and flexibility, which in turn improves body balance. From a mental and spiritual perspective, yoga encourages self-reflection, emotional regulation, focus, and concentration. Yoga plays an important role in bringing total balance to your mind, body, and soul.

Yoga for Focus

Every element of yoga is designed to improve your concentration and focus in all areas of life. Regular yoga practice can help you feel more aligned and assist you in dealing with whatever life throws at you, increasing your focus and resilience. Learning poses while quieting your mind and controlling your breathing provides the ideal opportunity to practice finding focus and improve your concentration.
