Now that you have embarked on your weight loss journey you maybe thinking of introducing some light exercise into your week. Yoga is great for not only the body but also the mind, focusing on strength, flexibility and boosting physical and mental well-being. The practice originated from ancient India thousands of years ago and is practiced in many Gyms and leisure centres across the country.
There is something for everybody, whether you are old, young, flexible or stiff; even energetic or lazy. Do not be put off if you attended a class and you didn’t like the teacher try another class or you can also do it from the comfort or your own lounge.
If this is your first time trying yoga, look on Youtube for some beginner poses and workouts. See which style best suits you, whether you prefer a more dynamic workout or more meditative. If it doesn’t feel right start something new.
It can be as little as 10 minutes a day or up to 1 hour per week. Practice yoga when you feel in the right frame of mind, for some this maybe on a morning for others it maybe later in the day.
You do not need any specialist equipment, make sure you are in comfy clothes and you have a towel handy. Once you get to grips with yoga you may feel like you want to invest a little more and possibly treat yourself to a mat and or perhaps some yoga pants.
There are many benefits to doing yoga. It helps in toning your muscles, builds strength and you may become more flexible. Yoga is a great meditation exercise that can reduce stress, keeping the mind healthy too.
The beauty about yoga is it does not matter if you cannot do all the moves as yoga poses can be modified depending on the individual, but in time you may find that as your strength and well-being improves and you will be able to do poses that you could not do at the very beginning.
