Fact: Yoga can improve your brain function. This was pulled from ‘Men’s Journal Magazine’
You may have heard that exercising can improve brain function, but yoga specifically has some very real mental benefits. “Yoga uses the body and breath as tools to create equanimity and clarity in the mind,” says Kluczkowski. “By synching movement with steady, conscious breath, we feel less stress and can better focus. A study in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health found that 20 minutes of Hatha yoga stimulates brain function more than walking or jogging on the treadmill for the same amount of time.”
