There are numerous health benefits gained through the regular practice of yoga and the ethos is about increasing your well-being, improving flexibility and finding inner harmony. If this sounds appealing, it’s worth noting that it takes very little time for the benefits to be experienced even if you are a complete beginner and not as supple as you would like to be.
