Yoga By Zeiba Chavdi
and Mahnoor Syed What is yoga? Types of Yoga What are the scientific benefits Other Benefits Video for further explanation: Yoga is the general term for mental,

It is built on three main structures:
exercise, breathing, and meditation. There are six different types of yoga:
Hatha Yoga- yoga of posture
Bhakti Yoga- yoga of devotion
Raja Yoga or Yoga of Self-Control
Jnana Yoga or Yoga of the Mind

Pain Prevention: Increased flexibility and strength can help prevent the causes of some types of back pain. Mental Calmness: Yoga asana practice is intensely physical. Concentrating so intently on what your body is doing has the effect of bringing a calmness to the mind. The women also showed smaller increases in IL-6.IL-6 is an important part of the body’s inflammatory response and has been implicated in heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, arthritis and a host of other age-related debilitating diseases. Stress Reduction: Physical activity is good for relieving stress, and this is particularly true of yoga. Because of the concentration required, your daily troubles, both large and small, seem to melt away during the time you are doing yoga. Body Awareness: Doing yoga will give you an increased awareness of your own body. You are often called upon to make small, subtle movements to improve your alignment. Over time, this will increase your level of comfort in your own body. This can lead to improved posture and greater self-confidence. Examples of poses: Triangle Pose (Trikonasana)

Crane Pose (Bakasana)

Plough Pose (Halasana)
