This activity is a much needed one for youth.


Millennials are found to be extremely stressed and overworked, especially with the existence of social media. Thus, leading an increased pressure on them.

Yoga has been go-to for millennials with its own time consumption and its benefits. If you're a passionate yoga practitioner, you've probably noticed some yoga benefits.

It could be in sleeping better or getting fewer colds as well as just feeling more relaxed and at ease. But if you've ever tried telling a newbie about the benefits of yoga you’ll be met with scepticism and wariness.

Whether you are looking for reasons to begin doing yoga or seeking to just know the benefits of yoga, this list is for you.

Regular yoga has been found to be associated with mindful eating as a result of an awareness of physical and emotional sensations associated with eating.

Yoga generates physical awareness through its breathing exercises which strengthens the mind-body connection.

2.  Yoga is a stress reliever

With as few as 4 minutes a day it can help get rid of stress that can accumulate from day to day activities mentally and physically. Yoga postures and meditation are proven as being effective stress relieving techniques.
