Some of us are good at quarantine and some of us are just waiting to get our life back. Whichever type of person you are, yoga might just make this uncertain time for us a tad bit more mindful while toning us up!
So why yoga? Well, there’s so many reasons but here are our top 2..
1.Physical Benefits: Size and fitness level do not matter in yoga. You just need to start to increase your flexibility. Your body needs to stretch and by doing so you are inevitably increasing muscle strength and toning up. When you kick your day off with yoga, you are jump starting your metabolism and improve your circulatory heath which all lead to weight reduction. And who isn’t shooting for that!
2.Mental Benefits: Yoga has been a way to release stress which is known to have a devastating effect on the body; neck or back pain, sleeping problems, headaches or focusing. Since yoga incorporates breathing and stretching together it provides space for mental clarity. It sharpens the mind, centers attention, and increases body awareness.
