Why To Try Yoga

Do you see all of those benefits?! Incredible. How many of you have tried yoga? I absolutely love yoga. It is a great way to stretch all of your muscles out after a hard week of work, working out and life. Here is why you should try yoga!

Yoga is a series of stretches and poses that you do with breathing techniques. It offers the powerful benefits of exercise. And since yoga is gentle, almost anyone can do it, regardless of your age or fitness level.

There are many branches of yoga. All yoga styles can help balance your body, mind, and spirit, but they achieve it in various ways. Some yoga styles are intense and vigorous. Others are relaxing and meditative.

Here are some more benefits of yoga:

-Makes you stronger and more flexible.

- Helps you to stay limber and energetic. 

-Helps you to feel more focused and alert. 

Yoga can also help improve these conditions:

-Poor blood circulation

-High blood pressure



-Limited mobility

-Lower back pain

-Difficulty breathing


-Tension or stress


Yoga can help you:

-Reduce your risk for injury.

-Reduce stress. 

-Increase your concentration.

-Understand the mind and body connection.

-Gain strength and stamina. 

-Improve balance and stability. 

-Improve posture. 

-Develop body awareness. 

Yoga is a great way to get your body active again. If you haven't been active for a while start with yoga and move you way up. Yoga is also great if you're already fit and want a challenging workout. As you become more strong and flexible with yoga, it's easier to do other kinds of exercise.

One of new favorite yoga workouts is Yoga Fix from 21 Day Fix.  I did it on Sunday and felt absolutely amazing. 
Yoga is a great way to give your muscles a break so that they can work at their best. 
I also really love Yoga Inferno by Jillian Michaels. This DVD is what made me love yoga so much. In this dvd there are two workouts. Workout 1 uses body weight along with 30-second cardio intervals. Workout 2 incorporates the use of light hand weights, combining traditional resistance moves with classic yoga poses for a dynamic, flowing, and challenging practice. 

These are two great options to try. Post in the comments if you have any yoga routine that you love. I am always looking for a new way to enjoy yoga.
