National Yoga Month, a national awareness campaign to inspire a healthy lifestyle, will bring Free Yoga to millions of people this September. During National Yoga Month yoga studios and teachers will offer 2,000+ free yoga classes and events nationwide.

Los Angeles, CA, April 16, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Yoga Month is the perfect opportunity to begin to create small lifestyle changes for yourself and your family.

How old should one be to start yoga?
------------------------------------------------

You can start yoga at any age.

What are the health benefits of practicing yoga?
-------------------------------------------------------------

Some of the benefits of practicing yoga are increased flexibility, stronger muscles and connective tissue, alignment of the vertebrae, toned and rejuvenated internal organs.

In addition, the epidermal, digestive, lymphatic, cardiovascular, and pulmonary systems are purified of toxins and waste matter; the nervous and endocrine systems are balanced and toned; brain cells are nourished and stimulated.

Results of a regular yoga practice include increased mental clarity, emotional stability, and a greater sense of overall wellbeing.

Yoga is one of the 10 most utilized Complementary Medicine methods in US.

Because Yoga operates on so many different levels, it can be an effective therapy for chronic diseases and conditions that do not respond well to conventional treatment methods.

Additionally, a regular yoga practice will sharpen concentration, balance, and composure.

Who benefits from National Yoga Month?
----------------------------------------------------

You benefit the most. Start practicing yoga (at home or with a teacher) and feel the difference it will make in your life.

Yoga Month educational programs were created to offer solutions to diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension and other chronic illnesses that have cast a pall over the health of our youth.

Yoga Month proceeds fund the national awareness campaign and Yoga-Recess in Schools to bring yoga-based health and fitness education into classrooms.

About National Yoga Month
----------------------------------

In 2008, the Department of Health and Human Services designated September as National Yoga Month, one of a select number of national health observances. That same year, thousands of yoga and health enthusiasts participated in a 10 City Yoga Health Festival Tour featuring yoga classes, lectures, music, entertainment, exhibits. Since then, the initiative has taken root as a global awareness campaign, educating, inspiring and motivating people to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Yoga Month is coordinated by the Yoga Health Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Yoga studios, teachers and organizers are encouraged to offer free yoga classes and events in their community and list them at www.yogamonth.org
