Reason #3: Yoga improves focus

Everyone begins their yoga practice for different reasons, but perhaps one of the most sought after reasons is mental clarity and focus. Yoga promotes mindfulness and controlled, intentional focus of attention. Research, such as the study described here, has shown evidence that as little as 20 min a day of consistent yoga practice can improve focus, working memory, and your brain's processing speed and accuracy. Who doesn't want a healthier, more focused brain?
