Top 5 Benefits of Yoga


We are proud to introduce our first fitness item - The Home Basics Yoga Mat! 


If you are not familiar with the benefits of yoga, don't worry #shophomebasicshasyoucovered, scroll down to check out the top 5 benefits of Yoga, beyond the cute mat. 


1. Better Body Image 

Focusing inward during yoga, helps you become less critical of your outward appearance. Ultimately causing you to become more comfortable with your body, and less critical of it. 


2. Heart Benefits 

Yoga can help lower your blood pressure, blood sugar and is overall good for your heart and blood vessels. 


3. Mindful Eating 

 Being more in tune with your body, makes you more conscious of what you are putting in it at meal time 


4. Weight Control 

Mindfulness developed through yoga creates a more sensitive connection between hunger, and satisfaction cues in the body. This helps develop a healthier relationship with food. 


5. Overall Fitness

In addition to the benefits listed above, doing yoga a few times a week increases muscle strength, endurance and flexibility.
