Benefits of Yoga

So you think that the only way to get a nice, lean, ripped body is by doing hard workouts that require a lot of sweating? FALSE! Workouts such as yoga are just as important to keep your body in tip top shape! Yoga requires you to not only take deep breaths in and out but also to stand or stay in a certain position for a period of time; while in this position you contract your muscles and in doing so you strengthen your body.

Physical Benefits of Yoga:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved respiration
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Increase body tone
  • Weight reduction
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Improves posture
  • Prevents joint breakdown
  • Drops blood pressure
  • Improves your balance
  • Releases tension in muscles

Mental Benefits of Yoga:

  • Creates mental clarity
  • Relaxes the mind
  • Sharpens concentration
  • Boosts self-esteem and self awareness

Now that you’ve seen all the benefits of yoga, don’t you want to try it out for yourself? For the next few days, try out the yoga videos below alongside or instead of your regular workout routine.

    1. Isn’t it crazy how you can work your butt off in the gym with intense classes but something as soothing and calming as yoga can have such an impact on your body? Don’t get me wrong, some poses are soooo difficult and require so much concentration and inner strength! I’m very glad that you’ve noticed your body changing, I hope it continues to change and that you are extremely happy in your own skin :D!

  2. This is so helpful, especially the different time frame options! I have done the 21 Day Fix from Beachbody and I really enjoy their yoga workout, but I’ve had a hard time finding others I like as much. I’m excited to try some of these you posted!

    1. I agree! There are so many benefits that it’s amazing! I do recommend many people to give it a go, even if they may think it’s a bit silly at first! I wish you the best of luck with all of your poses! Have a lovely day πŸ™‚
