All my life I’ve always geared toward the bouncing off the walls, high intensity cardio as the best way to get in a workout, and I’m still kind of there but I have learned that Yoga. Is. Hard! Its not as easy as it looks people! I was sweating after 10 min… and it wasn’t even hot yoga!

So I’ve been looking more into it, been going with a few friends at our local gym and man o man… you learn there is muscles you didn’t even know you had!

Here are some of the wonderful things I found out about yoga and how it can help benefit you.

  1. It helps your strength and help you tone up
  2. Posture- Yoga is all about being “in tune” with your body and knowing how your body feels.
  3. Helps your breathing- your lung capacity often improves because of the deep breathing exercises you do while your doing yoga
  4. Helps reduce your pulse rate, blood pressure and much more
  5. Helps mood and sleep
  6. Weight normalizes
  7. Memory, concentration, and attention improves
  8. Can help with anxiety and depression
  9. Your HDL ( the good cholesterol) increases when the LDL (the bad) decreases
  10. And the list continues …..

Here are some popular  yoga poses, try it at home, go to a class at a local gym, try it in the park or with a friend… see what ya think! .. harder than it looks.. plus you’ll sleep like a baby =)
