The benefits of yoga have been documented throughout the ages and include muscle tone, increasing body strength and blood flow, as well as increasing one’s flexibility. Having originated from Hindu philosophy, the origins of yoga have been traced back to the fifth century B.C. The wonderful thing about yoga is that one does not need to be an advanced learner or an expert to derive its benefits, for people of all ages, with varying levels of exposure to the activity can begin to benefit from it from the very start. An integral component of yoga, that is essential to ensure that one derives the greatest benefits offered by the activity, is the selection of a calm and soothing environment that is appropriate and ideal to allow or facilitate the relaxation of both the body and the mind. Indeed, practitioners of yoga have stressed the importance of the external environment in experiencing a positive and beneficial experience.
