What benefits can yoga offer your joints?

Yoga has many benefits for the body, specifically for the joints. Most yoga poses provide movements through the full range of each of the joints of the body. When done correctly, the slow, controlled physical movement of joints improves circulation and can remove unwanted toxins. For some patients with joint disease such as arthritis, these exercises can provide relief and increased mobility.
