“We must create a marriage between the awareness of the body and that of the mind. When two parties do not cooperate, there is unhappiness on both sides ― B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life”

Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga.
Poor posture can cause back, neck, and other muscle and joint problems.
If you've got a well-balanced asana practice with plenty of backbends, forward bends, and twists, you'll help keep your disks supple.
The relaxation exercises you learn in yoga can help your circulation, especially in your hands and feet. Yoga also gets more oxygen to your cells, which function better as a result.
Yoga encourages you to relax, slow your breath, and focus on the present, shifting the balance from the sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system
Yoga and meditation build awareness. And the more aware you are, the easier it is to break free of destructive emotions like anger. Yoga can help you make changes in your life. In fact, that might be its greatest strength.
Yoga is a complex subject with this very simple definition: yogah cittavrtti nirodhah (the Yoga Sutra, I.2), which translated means, "Yoga is the cessation of movements in the consciousness," according to B.K.S. Iyengar in his book Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Using yoga props can help you find balance and alignment. We break down basic poses to reeducate and still the mind by awakening the body's intelligence
When used in this way, props can engage us in a process of observation, discernment, and reflection. This process will expand our intelligence and begin to teach us how to still the fluctuations of our consciousness.
" Iyengar says that when one layer of consciousness is active, it expands, causing the other layers to retract. So when we activate our intelligence, we force the overactive mind and clinging ego to recede, giving us the experience of stillness that is yoga. "
" Iyengar says that view devalues the innate intelligence of the body—the yogi's vehicle on the path to stilling the consciousness. He insists that intelligence can be cultivated in every cell of the body. One of the methods he has developed for expanding intelligence is to use props while practicing asana. "
