Clothes that are tight restrict you from moving and baggy clothes can get in the way of your movements.

Some physiological benefits of yoga include things like pulse rate decrease, respiratory rate decrease, blood pressure decrease. This is very helpful for people with high blood pressure because I personally know a lot of people with high blood pressure and yoga can definitely be of benefit to them. Yoga is also beneficial for weight normalization and it helps burn calories while performing yoga and you also have to be physically fit to perform the various techniques that are needed to do yoga correctly.
