    The asanas are found to have therapeutic effects, and they form a key ingredient if one is looking to have a healthy body. Most asanas are different poses that engage different parts of the body. These parts may be the internal organs, joints, different muscles, tendons, etc. Different asanas increase mobility, strength and flexibility, and many of them are found beneficial in conditions like constipation, depression, anxiety, hypertension, asthma, COPD and back pain. Asanas also increase the overall strength and flexibility of the body, hence making it fitter. Ultimately, asanas help one to get a ‘balanced’ body.

    Here are some other general benefits of practicing yoga:
