Get Good Karma With a Yoga Class
Posted on 04/25/2011
If you’re tired of the same exercise routine and want something new and refreshing—yet calming—look no further than attending a yoga class. The mention of yoga often comes with preconceived notions of being in contorted, awkward positions for several minutes while wearing spandex and getting little real exercise. That’s quite the contrary. In recent years, mainstream exercise enthusiasts have discovered the many benefits of yoga.
As you would’ve guessed, yoga improves flexibility by working various joints in the body that rarely get exercised. This helps in lubricating those joints, ligaments and tendons. You also experience a complete detoxification of the body through yoga.
With the different positions you perform during your workout, you improve balance. You also use your own body weight that increases core body strength and tones muscles. Amazingly, yoga massages all organs of the body, including those that experience little external exercise.
Yoga is surprisingly relaxing and should calm you down if you’re feeling stressed. Because you focus on your body and balance throughout the workout, you have little mental capacity to think about anything else. If you’re thinking you don’t have the time to fit yoga into a hectic life, it only takes 30 minutes to get in a good session. You can workout just about anywhere: a class, your home or even outdoors. In the end your home and work life will see the benefits of a new and improved you.
