You want to have a full life. You want to feel well. You want lots of energy, vitality, power, and stamina. Right?

Well, the great news is that all these things can be yours. Yoga applies age-old secrets to everyday life in a modern, fast-paced world. Its practical implementation might give you back lost youth. It could give your every stride new vigor and empower you to fully enjoy a sense of health, energy, and creative living. All this will do wonders for your future happiness.

Sounds good, huh? Well, here’s a little more about yoga.

Yoga is a centuries-old wellness art created and refined by wise men in ancient India. Yoga is not a belief system, philosophical theory, or metaphysical idea. It is not magic, even though the remarkable changes it can bring about in your health, beauty, and youthfulness frequently seem mystical or even miraculous.

There are many different types of yoga. Contrary to popular belief, not all types of yoga involve difficult positions and postures, uncomfortable exercises, or strenuous diets.

Yoga may lengthen your life and remove years from your face and body. The Yogis use some undiscovered techniques to maintain their joints’ suppleness and youthful “spring” well into their advanced years.

It is common to see Yogis in their seventies and eighties in New Delhi or Bombay’s colorful and crowded streets. They have firm, healthy bodies with dark, glossy hair that is un-streaked with gray. Their faces are unlined with bright, sparkly eyes. They have the straight, graceful posture of youth and walk with springy steps.

Yoga gives your body excellent health and makes you look and feel younger and healthier. It functions like magic because it allows the body to reach its full potential for superior health.

Nature has built specific “defense mechanisms” into your body for self-repair and natural safeguards against disease. Modern yoga aids in the body’s smooth, effective, and peak operation.

Yoga provides many benefits to the basic functioning of your body that can mean the difference between feeling “pretty good” and feeling “terrific”! These benefits include:

  • Encouraging your body to get every last bit of nutrition from the food you consume
  • Getting every second of refreshment and rest from your sleep
  • Achieving regularity
  • Relief from minor aches and pains
  • Sleeping deeply and waking refreshed

Yoga helps your muscles, bones, and organs function to their fullest. Yoga stimulates the hidden abilities of your body to throw off the attacks of disease that affect so many people.

Do you suffer from insomnia and stress? Have you lost your appetite? Do you find it hard to relax? Do you smoke too much, feel “worn out” by the afternoon, or find that you cannot enjoy life and day-to-day vitality as you grow older?

Yoga can relax and refresh you, soothe your nerves, and calm your mind. It also provides you with the serenity, strength, and inner stamina that is part of the “Magic of the East.”

Physically, yoga prevents the premature grey in your hair and the ugly wrinkles on your face. Yoga tightens those sagging muscles that give you that “tired look.” It puts new zest in your appetite, brings back the sparkle in your eyes, and provides that wonderful sensation of feeling “fit as a fiddle.”

If these benefits are important to you (and you’d be crazy if they weren’t), then its time you learned about yoga!
