Building core strength and functional fitness is one of the many benefits of hatha yoga as it challenges one to take up weight bearing postures and hold them for varying lengths of time, and even repeat multiple times during a practice. This helps strengthen and stretch the body.
Hatha yoga is considered extremely beneficial for the spine as the various contorted postures help keep the spine supple and strong.
Due to the sedentary nature of our lives, the joints start to lose their range of motion which makes them stiff after a certain age. Hatha yoga movements help make the body move in all four directions which improves joint flexibility and mobility.
