Yoga is widely known for providing physical benefits such as balance, flexibility and strength, but it is also a purposeful and intentional practice (mindfulness) drawing ones attention to the parts of the body; the thoughts arising in the mind (“this hurts”, “I can’t do it”, or “I really like this”); the breath; and the physiological and mental outcomes of the time on the mat.
