Why pursue yoga?

Maintaining the healthiness of your mind, body, heart, and soul, regardless of your age, is the key to living a healthy and happy life. It is normal for your body and mind to go through some physical changes as you age, which might cause fatigue. Your reflexes start to slow down, your joints start to rust, your muscles start to deteriorate, and even your mind starts to feel worn out. Yoga is one type of exercise that enables you to live a healthier life. The near-perfect method for assuring strength, flexibility, stability, mobility, and well-being is known as yogic asanas or poses/postures. Here are five simple yoga poses that you ought to include in your morning routine.


One of the best yoga asanas is Uttanasana. The traditional inversion stance is a fantastic approach to treat (or prevent) back-related issues. The asana exerts weight on your ankles, hips, and tummy while stretching out your hamstrings, calves, and lower back. Uttanasana is recognised for:
  • Alleviating persistent back discomfort
  • Enhancing blood flow
  • Lowering levels of stress
  • Building up your hamstrings
  • Increasing your adaptability

Baddha Konasana

This is one of the top 5 yoga asanas. As we all know, the butterfly posture is a terrific technique to stretch out your groin, which is typically a stiff and underused area of the body. The Baddha Konasana, which is best performed first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach, aids:
  • Activating your bladder's urethra
  • Controlling kidney issues
  • Enhancing how well your digestive system works
  • Taking care of the menopause process
  • Alleviating tiredness


Bhujangasana, which resembles a cobra's rising head, is best renowned for its capacity to strengthen the lower back, shoulders, and chest. Ideally, those who suffer from lower back discomfort, back issues, or spine injuries should perform this asana each morning. Your benefits from Bhujangasana:
  • The lower back's rigidity
  • Deal with back pain
  • Release tension from the chest and shoulders

This is one of the best yoga asanas if you want to ease stress and anxiety. Shavasana is one of the most well-known and simple yoga asanas.
