The main benefit of Yoga is the effect it can have on your mental health. Yoga has become famous as a stress-relief option and science has proven that Yoga provides a positive impact on the human brain to not only lower stress but to help you relax.
Studies have illustrated that yoga can lower the cortisol secretion in your body which is the hormone that causes stress. In addition, studies have shown that yoga can reduce cortisol levels after only three months of regular participation in yoga.
In addition to the lower cortisol levels, studies have also shown a significant reduction in anxiety and stress levels after only 10 weeks of regular yoga.
