Yoga helps to build strength in a number of muscles, including your upper and lower limbs, your back and also your core muscles. It is these core muscles that help to support your body and its entire skeletal

system. By strengthening these you can have a positive impact on your overall wellbeing and physical health. Your core also helps to support your posture.

Yoga can also help to reduce stress and tension which can then help to release any knots and strains that can appear in your muscles. Once this is released it can help your movement and therefore your overall mobility. Over time your body will continue to increase in strength.
