after doing yoga for awhile, you really get in touch with yourself in a way you probably haven’t before. its helps your posture so you can stand tall and walk about very proud of yourself with a new found confidence. also you discover your inner self, what bothers you or causes you problems.. you will focus on a solution for all these things and one by one eliminate them and then you will begin to focus on the joys and blessings in your life.
i hope this helped! 🙂
Yoga is doing stretches. The practitioner moves slowly from one stretch to another and holds that stretch for a time, then moves on to another.
This slow moving and some breathing exercises help them to relax and become more calm. Being relaxed and calm can increase ones self confidence, since the person is not excited.
Doing yoga will increase self confidence is very True . This is my personal Experience also. Yoga is better control on your Mind & body. When you control your mind you can get rid of any problem and able to take correct decision also. Yoga Is consist of
1. Pranayam ( Breathing Exercise )
2. Asan ( Some physical Exercise )
3. Meditation ( Mind Control )

While stretching is relaxing, it isn’t yoga unless it is done in conjunction with the breath(pranayam). The breath is important because once you are able to control your breath, you are able to control your thoughts and your life. A regular yoga practice will increase self confidence-imagine how great you feel after working on a pose for months that you are finally able to do. Also, any back-bending posture helps with depression.
