How does yoga improve mental health?
While the benefits of yoga have been long documented, the World Health Organization emphasises that working out regularly can improve your overall health, particularly amidst the pandemic.
With benefits that are far reaching, yoga essentially consists of stretching and breathing exercises. These exercises help release certain chemicals from your body, which in-turn reduces mental stress, anxiety and boosts your overall immunity.

Klook’s FREE live yoga session hosts a mix of easy, no-fuss yoga exercises without making you spend a single penny!
You will learn about relaxation, meditation, breathing exercises and whole body involvement from a yoga expert. Get a chance to ask questions like 'How does yoga help to fight the coronavirus?' and 'How do I keep tab on my mental health amidst the lockdown?' during the Q&A session.
Understand how yoga can help you remain positive in times of uncertainty, poor health and negative news.
