What are the benefits of heart-opening yoga poses?

Our physical posture also effects our thoughts, feelings, the image we have of ourselves, and the subsequent responses we receive from others. Our nervous system gets feedback from our muscles, bones, lungs and viscera. We have millions of receptors in our muscles, tendons and joints sending a steady stream of messages to our brain and nervous system about the way we carry and move our bodies.
