In August I will celebrate practicing yoga for eight years. As a result of this practice, I have received many emotional and physical benefits. I feel strong, alert and calm during and after I practice. I have also met a lot of really nice people. As I get older, practicing is not always easy but it is always rewarding. Technology is getting better and anecdotal evidence regarding the benefits of yoga is now documented by research. Very cool to know the science behind what I feel. Here is a great video from uplift connect.com showing the science behind yoga. One study has shown yoga helps decrease depression and anxiety. What good news for sufferers of these maladies! Hope you enjoy this clip.
