With humans living longer due to better eating, living conditions and healthy lifestyles, this also means we can get age related illnesses. One of the really important aspects of yoga is it improves our brain’s ability to think quickly, accurately and to process information precisely. The health experts believe this is because in yoga we encourage you to be present and mindful all the time. To think about your practice and what you want out of the day. Apparently, this awareness brings on structural changes in our brains, including growth in the prefrontal cortex. This is associated with working memory and attention.
