When was the last time you did something for yourself? Let yoga be that thing! There are so many benefits to it.
Check out some of the reasons why yoga is beneficial to your well-being:
It improves your flexibility and strength:
Yoga helps you move better and feel less stiff or tired. Poses such as downwards dog and plank help to make you stronger
It gives you great posture:
When you’re stronger and more flexible, your posture improves. A lot of yoga poses help with your core strength and with a stronger core, you’re more likely to sit up tall. You become more aware of your body when you practice yoga, so you’ll notice when you’re slouching and then be quick to adjust to a more upright posture.
It helps with your breathing:
You’re paying attention to your breath when you’re in a yoga class so this helps you to relax and focus on breathing.
It decreases the stress and increases the calm:
Most yoga classes have a meditation portion which will allow you to relax and become more focused.
It’s good for your heart:
Yoga can lower your blood pressure and slow the heart rate. Plus it’s been linked to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
