What is yoga and why is it good for you?


Despite the fact that people think yoga is a form of exercise it is actually quite more than that - it’s a way of life. It is much less tiring than other forms of exercise and training and it has much more benefits than them. If you start living and breathing yoga, not all the time of course, but most of all if you change your mindset - it will do wonders.

Benefits breathing

If you practise yoga consistently, your capacity to breathe in more oxygen will increase as a result of the deep breathing process. This will then have a positive effect on more intense sports that you might be a part of, increasing your stamina and endurance.

Increases flexibility

People often say that they are not flexible enough to do yoga. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how tight your muscles are as yoga asanas works by safely stretching your muscles and help you to practise it further. It increases the range of motion in the bone sockets allowing you to move around more freely.

Improves your posture

By practising yoga you maintain a fit body, become more flexible and improve your muscle tone and strength. You will find that your posture will greatly improve because of this. Your abdominals and back muscles can now fully support your body and you will prevent aches.
