The Six Branches of Yoga

Why Practice Sun Salutations
We do Sun Salutations for many reasons such as our physical health. The poses involved are excellent for the whole body. Sun Salutations can also have a resounding affect on you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Here are some thoughts for the physical and mental sides of the practice.
Yoga as Therapy
Yoga can be soothing and healing to a troubled psyche and is often used as a form of therapy. However, yoga therapy can deal with more specific physical ailments and conditions helping to relieve or alleviate symptoms.
Yoga for Healthy Knees
The knee is considered to be the largest and most complicated hinge joint in the human body. Practicing standing poses in yoga can help you have healthy strong knees. Fifteen minutes a day of standing yoga postures is enough to strengthen the muscles that insert and surround the knee.
Yoga for Upper Body Strength
Yoga is an excellent source of resistance training, using your own body weight to provide the resistance, and building muscle in the process. Yoga is especially great for upper body strength, sculpting and defining your arms and shoulders with specific poses.
