These Yoga studios, among others, can provide you with an elevated lifestyle. But why yoga and what can the experience offer you? What are the guaranteed benefits? Well…
They can reduce stress and anxiety.
Meditation and the holding of positions can not only develop coping skills, but can significantly relax your mind, increase awareness of body, regulate breathe, improve attentiveness and release emotional energy. Yoga helps you access an inner strength that permits you to face challenges while also helping you eliminate all of the emotional energy within.
Yoga can increase energy.
Do you feel drained and exhausted in the morning or at night? An hour of Yoga provides that necessary fill up you need through deep breathing, holding yoga positions, and external expression. Whether it means attending a Yoga class in the morning before your work-day, or going afterwards it can result in your blood getting waves of oxygen through deep breathing.
Improve your sleeping habits.
As Yoga involves meditation, calmness and peace, it can quiet the mind and improve your sleeping. A study conducted at Harvard Medical School found that the participants who practiced Yoga before bedtime, had much better sleep patterns – i.e., sleep quality, wake time, total time while sleep. Improving sleeping habits will improve your overall health.
Yoga has the ability to help you come to a conclusion about what needs to be done within your life – perhaps what goals you want to accomplish or how you want to achieve positive results.
Namaste to all!
