According to the reflection of the trainees, at end of every session, they witness that they have seen some changes on a physical level and also high level of energy on their training days. Each of the yoga poses is built to reinforce the muscles around the spine, the very center of your body, which is the core from which everything else operates. When the core is working properly, posture is improved, thus alleviating back, shoulder and neck pain.

Yoga practice is also believed to help, in increasing high blood circulation that will boost the energy level, high physical strength and flexibility, promote healthy posture, improve immunity; stress and depression relief and inspiration are few of the benefits.

Yoga is a philosophy which is first developed in India, in which physical exercises and meditation are believed to help people to become calmer and united in sprit with God.
