I really enjoyed your post. The meditative benefits of yoga are amazing at reducing stress and clearing the mind. When the breath gets tied to the movement it allows the body to relax in a better way. I like how you also covered internal conditions that can be improved through regular yogic practice. My asthma and autoimmune digestive issues have greatly improved as a result of my practice. Overall very informative.
