How Yoga Can Make A Positive Impact On Your Life 💙
It’s Mental Health Week!
Yoga can be a great way to help with your mental health as it relieves stress, reduces muscle tension and sharpens your concentration. Check out our top reasons why you should take up yoga!
FEEL GOOD 😄
Yoga is a great stress reliever. Breathing exercises such as the Pranayama are a big part of yoga and help you feel good. It's all about being conscious and aware of your breathing, so this aspect of yoga + the fact you're doing exercise which helps those little endorphins flow will leave you feeling pretty damn good. ✌️
It's not quite like lifting weights at the gym, but as far as bodyweight exercises go, yoga engages pretty much all of them. Plus, your body will function better while it improves in strength as well as balance and breathing.
GET IN TUNE 🙏
The word “yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning to join together. This is the main purpose of yoga - to unite body, mind and spirit. Getting in tune with your own body and the way everything feels and works makes it much easier to assess what your weak points are and improve on them. Helping you once again, feel good and get a better functioning bod.
IMPROVE POSTURE 🚶
Sitting at a desk for large parts of your day whether you're in lectures, in the library or sat at home doing work (looking for memes) it can really wreak havoc on your back. Yoga improves posture helping alleviate any aches and pains. Plus once you're more in tune with your body you'll start standing and sitting in more healthy ways for your back, preventing pain in the long run.
