It is a discipline that encourages teamwork as well as the recognition of our maximum potential, favours the strengthening of the body, the stimulation of consciousness and interaction between people.
Shyness causes discomfort and intolerance in interpersonal relationships. It is an emotional state that can block the human mind. It is not considered a disease, but it reduces many points to those who suffer from these afflictions. People who perform yoga daily or weekly, experience progress in strengthening emotions, such as gaining confidence, security and integration with other people.
