Here at Right Path Fitness we are strong advocates of anything that helps to build a stronger, fitter, healthier and more confident you – so we don’t limit ourselves in any way to just focusing on certain styles of forms of training that might not necessarily benefit all our clients to the maximum.
One good example of this is that we often recommend yoga as a great form of training that can be combined with other forms of physical activity to provide you with the best possible body that you can achieve.
With this in mind, here’s 5 ways in which yoga has an amazing affect on your body and mind:
Yoga is Very Safe and Effective
Most studies suggest yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. There’s some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress.
Yoga works the muscles in different ways simultaneously
One of the great things about yoga is that it’s great for placing different types of strains and stresses on the muscles which lead to greater overall and more-rounded fitness – for example, yoga increases the muscles strength and tone but also the flexibility all at the same time! No wonder yoga has become so popular!
Yoga helps to teach you to breath properly, which is a key thing to learn if you are going to manage stress properly and maintain the best possible frame of mind and overall body control. It also helps with mental clarity and sharpening concentration and focus – so again this is one valuable aspect of yoga that can have an extremely positive affect on your life in some many ways!
Mental benefits of Yoga
As well as all the amazing physical benefits, yoga is of course also great for the mind and mentality of the participant, and is proven to reduce stress, help you to relax and unwind and has even been proven to help you become better able to manage life’s stresses by giving you a calmer, more serene outlook on life!
Protection from Injury
Because of the way in which Yoga works and stretches the muscles, it’s great for helping to protect against injuries which is what makes yoga such a valuable pursuit for established athletes and health and fitness professionals, as well as amateurs and novices alike. Quite simply, yoga is of great benefit to anyone no matter who you are or what you do – which is why everyone should get involved and give it a try!
