This International Yoga Day we’re showing appreciation for the practice of yoga. Whether you’re a beginner or long-time fan, today’s the perfect day to get on your mat and experience all the incredible benefits of yoga.

Need more convincing? Here are a few reasons you should try yoga:

1. Improve your flexibility and balance. By practicing yoga regularly, you can increase your range of motion and improve your balance, which can help prevent falls and injuries.

2. Help reduce stress and anxiety. Yoga has a calming effect on the mind and body and can help reduce stress and anxiety levels. This can lead to better sleep, improved mood, and a greater sense of overall well-being.

3. Strengthen your muscles. Many yoga poses require you to hold your body weight in various positions, which can help build strength and tone your muscles. Just a few hours of yoga every week and you’ll be feeling much stronger!

4. Improve your breathing. Yoga emphasizes deep, slow breathing, which can help improve lung function and increase oxygen flow to the body. This can lead to better overall health and increased energy levels.

5. Yoga can be a fun and social activity. Practicing yoga with others can be a great way to meet new people and build a sense of community. Many yoga studios offer classes for all levels, so you can find a class that fits your needs and interests. You can also use Instagram Live to join yoga classes with people from all over the world!
