Yoga & Fitness - What is Yoga
Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.
Yoga provides health benefits
Moderate exercise is good for depression and anxiety, and practicing Yoga will promote physical strength, flexibility and balance. Anyone who has ever attended a Yoga Class will tell testify to the fact there are cardio/heart benefits to be had. By using Yoga, this increases the range of motion and joint health too.
Yoga helps work out muscular kinks and minor problems that might otherwise lead to back pain, discomfort in your body or limb stiffness. This type of physical activity in turn promotes joint and spinal flexibility.
Yoga promotes relaxation and emotional control
Yoga when practiced properly is a highly effective stress reduction and relaxation tool. In much the same way as a massage or Progressive Muscle Relaxation, Yoga requires the tensing, stretching and then relaxing of muscle groups and joints.
