Yoga, at its physical level is aimed at cleansing practice which can be very effective in addressing various disorders. Some of the main yoga benefits include increasing one's flexibility. The various different yoga positions work on all the different joints found in the human body. These also include those joints that are not really targeted in other forms of exercise. Benefits of yoga include increasing one's lubrication of the tendons, joints and ligaments.
Some of the Yoga poses exercise specific ligaments and tendons in one's body. Some people who have rigid bodies at the outset will start to notice more flexibility in their limbs. What can be termed as non strenuous yoga; can actually end up working on some parts of the human body in a totally unrelated way.
