As we know, the techniques of Vinyasa Flow Yoga have been the subject of many experiments designed to verify their impact on the nervous system, heart rate and ability to cure different ailment and potential for changing depressive moods. The reality is that Vinyasa produces a significant improvement not only in our health, but also on the way we live.

General Flexibility:

Improved flexibility is one of the first in the clearest benefits of Vinyasa Flow Yoga practice. During the first class, probably you will not be able to touch your toes with your hands, and make bows far back. But if you practice it diligently, you will notice a gradual flexibility, and eventually, some positions that seemed impossible will be possible at last. Another remarkable improvement is the disappearance of pain and tension. That’s not a coincidence. The hips can constrain strained knee joint due to improper alignment of the femur in the thigh with pimples. A tight hamstring can lead to unnatural flattening of the lumbar spine, which can cause pain. And inflexibility in muscles and connective tissues, such as the fascia (sheath of muscle bundles) and ligaments can cause disfiguring posture.

Strength Test

Strong muscles not only look good but also are physical manifestation of your strength. And when strength has been obtained through Yoga, this is balanced by flexibility. But if you get it through weightlifting at the gym with the intention of “making muscles,” strength would be achieved at the expense of flexibility.

Joints feed

When we practice Vinyasa Yoga our joints go through a full range of motion. This can help prevent degenerative arthritis and mitigate that condition by the “sponge effect” of cartilage areas not normally utilized. The joint cartilage is like a sponge; receives fresh nutrients when fluids are “availabe” and a new supply is “absorbed” by them quickly. Without proper maintenance, the neglected areas of cartilage can eventually tire.

Improve Bone Mass

It has been proved that exercise is performed in weight bearing strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis and even eliminated. Many yoga poses require you to lift your own weight, and hold the same part in different joints. Some like the Hound Dog Head down or Head up greatly strengthen the arms and shoulders that are very susceptible to fractures due to osteoporosis. In an unpublished study, University of California, Los Angeles, showed that the practice of Yoga intensified vertebrarles bone density. Yoga’s ability to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol may help keep calcium in the bones.

Improved Circulation

Vinyasa Flow Yoga increases the blood flow. More specifically, the relaxation exercises you learn in Vinyasa Flow Yoga can help improve circulation, especially of the feet and hands. The Yoga carries more oxygen to the cells. Twisting postures are designed to “drain” the venous blood from the internal organs and allow oxygenated blood to flow to them, when you release the pose. Vinyasa is helpful if you suffer from swelling in the legs. Vinyasa Yoga also improves hemoglobin levels and red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues. Furthermore, thins the blood platelets making them less sticky and cutting the protein level in blood clotting. This helps to reduce the incidence of heart attack and stroke.
