8. A Social Supporter

The previous benefits were all directly related to yoga. This one is an indirect benefit of going to a yoga class: socialization.

As adults, it becomes harder to expand your social support network with new people. Going to a yoga class helps you fight against this trend.

Being in a new environment with new people gives you the opportunity to make new friends, learn new ideas, and expand your current perspectives. A brief conversation after class can lead to a new relationship that will serve you well for years to come. All because you went to a yoga class.
