WHAT IS YOGA?
A Yoga class consists of a series of Yoga poses, or ‘asanas', and breathing practices. Each yoga pose has specific physical and mental benefits.
On a spiritual level the goal of Yoga is to balance body, mind and spirit.
On a physical level the benefits are many. Not only do the muscles of the body get worked out and stretched, there are also benefits to your internal systems. Many of the yoga poses massage and stimulate organs ensuring a optimum blood supply to various parts of the body, aiding in detoxification and providing nourishment. The functioning of other internal systems, such as your lymphatic, nervous and cardiovascular systems, can be improved by the practice of Yoga.
Adding Yoga into your fitness regime will bring many added benefits to complement those of your weights and cardio workouts.
