The longer you do yoga, the more you enjoy and become addicted, Yoga becomes your thing ! When you truly come to realise the benefits of the practise of yoga, you will find you have increased flexibility, much better muscle strength greater happiness, inside and out, the ability to focus much more and better, and most of all you will learn how to relax, let go of anxiety and sleep much better.
With various types of yoga to choose from, you will find the vinyasa flow to be extremely popular as it differs from what people think of yoga. It’s all about moving within the poses of yoga using your breathe. You won’t be sitting down until the end when you start to enter into back bends and hip openers, this yoga is really good for up -rating your heart beat, and breaking into a sweat…..you can use great music and it can be more upbeat than other yoga types. Apart from being great, from the cardio point of view it is also excellent for mindfulness and meditation. You need to be mindful or forget to breath when you will lose the sequence, you just can’t keep it going ………….
So, what does this do for your figure, yoga can tone and lengthen muscles, when you work in a gym with weights, you will be making your muscles bigger, in yoga you are always working against your own body weight as you go through the poses. Yoga is not about counting calories it is about the lifestyle it brings to you, and the wonderful feeling of well-being and long lean muscles you develop.
At times, it is difficult to keep the motivation going with an exercise plan or a program for well-being, but when we know how good we are going to feel and look afterwards, maybe that is enough to keep us going. If you do not have a strong will to do things alone, maybe you should consider joining a group, group work can be fun…………. The beauty of yoga is, you can practise where ever you are and just wear good comfy clothes is sufficient.
Happy yoga days !!
