Many of the postures use your own body weight for resistance, increasing arm and shoulder strength. The spine is better supported and the core is strengthened, over time correcting posture. The postures and sequences of yoga refine and tone the body in order to look amazing and feel even better. Whatever is ailing your body, or if you just want to take your fitness to a higher level, yoga’s ability to build muscle has an undeniable effect on the total body.
