Yoga in Egypt

Yoga Studios and Retreats

Yoga is a popular form of exercise and a spiritual discipline that focuses on improving one’s strength, flexibility, and breathing to promote physical and mental wellbeing.

Yoga, however, is not just a way of life; it’s also backed by science. According to research published in the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and the International Journal of Yoga, yoga practices actually “enhance muscular strength and body flexibility, promote and improve respiratory and cardiovascular function, promote recovery from and treatment of addiction, reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, improve sleep patterns, and enhance overall wellbeing and quality of life.”

With all its benefits, yoga is definitely something athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and workaholics may want to try in Egypt. The country is connected with nature in many ways.
