Yoga for Physical and Mental Relief
There has been a constant uptrend in the yoga world and we are excited to see it. Practicing yoga consistently has both physical and mental benefits.
If you’ve practiced the downward dog today chances are you’re feeling a little more relaxed than the rest of us. And we want to share why yoga and meditation are exceptional tools to bring your body balance.
Strength and Balance
Practicing yoga will help warm up your muscles, enhancing your flexibility, but being able to hold these poses will build both strength and balance that can carry out into your daily life. The more you practice the better these benefits become.
Back Pain Relief
The American College of Physicians recommends doing yoga for back pain relief. This is because the art of yoga deals with a lot of stretching which ultimately helps with improving mobility and easing lower back pain!
Ease Arthritis Symptoms
John Hopkins conducted a study that showed gentle yoga can help alleviate some of the swelling and discomfort in arthritic bones.
Practicing yoga at night before bed can help relax your body enough to help encourage a better nights sleep!
Creating a consistent yoga routine can boost your mental and physical energy! This leads to overall feeling better in your body and helps decrease negative thoughts.
Yoga is amazing for managing stress. Because yoga can help you feel better overall, you will be in a more positive mental state to organize tasks, information and feelings to better navigate the stress in your life.
We like to think this one is self-explanatory. Practicing a yoga routine is going to encourage you to be a better you and there’s no way better way of putting it!
The best thing about yoga and meditating is you can do it anywhere! Pick a place and go from there. Whether you are a beginner starting with gentle yoga or are looking to yoga to help with your six-pack, we are just happy you’ve decided to pick up an amazing, healthy habit! There is nothing more calming than the rhythm of your own breath and being in the moment with your body.
