Health Benefits of Yoga: Yoga Can Motivate You to Exercise More & Eat Healthier

National Health Interview Survey compared the health benefits of yoga to the health benefits of spinal manipulation and natural products. Yoga users reported the most positive health benefits. Nearly two-thirds of the individuals surveyed reported that practicing yoga increased motivation to exercise more regularly. Four in 10 participants reported that they were also motivated to eat healthier.
