On a physical level the muscles of the body get worked out and stretched, and there are benefits to your internal systems. Many of the yoga poses massage and stimulate organs ensuring a optimum blood supply to various parts of the body, aiding in detoxification and providing nourishment. The functioning of other internal systems, such as your lymphatic, nervous and cardiovascular systems, can be improved by the practice of Yoga.
