Top 5 Reasons You Should Take Up Yoga

VIDA Models 1 0720

1) To be more in tune with your body – Sometimes we take our body’s abilities

and functions for granted, but the pace of yoga allows us to slow down and

find intention in each movement and posture. This intention can really open

your eyes to where your body is strongest, and what areas of your overall

health you would like to improve.

2) To relieve stress –While running or lifting weights may also be a stress relief

for you, the breathing methods and tuning out of the outside world in yoga

can do wonders during times of tension and stress. The meditative nature of

yoga is something you might find yourself craving after you’ve discovered

true relaxation during exercise.

3) Pain relief – The practice of yoga is used to supplement treatment for a

variety of medical conditions such as hypertension and arthritis. Even back

and neck pain caused from sitting all day or not having a chance to sit all day

(sometimes it feels like we can’t win) will be greatly improved with yoga.

4) Increased Flexibility – Your excuse for not doing yoga because you’re not

flexible is no longer valid. Yoga is the form of exercise that will transform you

from not being able to touch your toes to touching your nose to your knees

with a little bit of time and patience.

5) Better sleep – At the most basic level yoga assists in being able to become

mentally “quiet” along with increased blood circulation helping your muscles

relax, both of which aid in sleep. Doing Cat and Child poses before bed is also

great way to ease in to a good night’s sleep.
