Yoga is an amazing way to work on all systems of the body, enhance the brain and keep one's mind at peace. Specific types of breathing and yoga postures allow more oxygen to be brought to brain cells, leading to increased stimulation, attention, and concentration. Oxygenating the brain can help to rejuvenate the damaged areas. Yoga poses combined with certain breathing techniques helps the body in a multitude of ways, it improves metabolism, calms the nervous system, improves sleep, increase body awareness, and increases body strength.
