Yoga, Sanskrit for union, is a spiritual practice that stretches our bodies and minds harmoniously.

In celebration of National Yoga Month , Miraval is happy to share just a few benefits that yoga is known to have on the body when practiced routinely – or make for good reason to start!

Seven Reasons to Practice Yoga:

  1. Improve muscle tone, flexibility, strength, and stamina
  2. Aid in alleviating cravings
  3. Stimulate the immune system
  4. Improve circulation
  5. Improve concentration and creativity
