At the physical level, yoga has proven to be extremely effective in many different areas, such as:  Increasing Flexibility  Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons  Massaging of ALL Organs of the Body  Complete Detoxification  Excellent toning of the muscles  Improving concentration, alertness Yoga can promote both cardiovascular, and muscular stamina. Through the continuity of action, cardiovascular stamina is developed. Through contraction of the muscles while holding the postures, muscular stamina is developed. Yoga while not intentionally aerobic can increase the heart rate at certain points until greater fitness is developed. Yoga goes beyond muscular strength. Muscles will lengthen, as opposed to contracting. And, a deep strength will become apparent. Yoga affects the mind as much as the body. It improves concentration, increases alertness, rational clarity develops equanimity and instills confidence. These benefits all depend on presence of mind during practice.
