Why everyone should try yoga

Why everyone should try yoga

A flexible body, less stress, greater mobility, … There is a reason why yoga (still!) is gaining popularity. Yoga feels good, but why exactly? We’ve got a few reasons to share. If you think yoga is only for the spiritually flexible athletes among us, then we have to disappoint you. Yoga is ideal for every purpose and every type of athlete (or non-athlete).  
  1. Breathing

Connecting with your breathing makes you feel less rushed. You get an instant feeling of calm, just through that movement and breathing.  Yoga introduces calmness and focus in your breathing, also during more physical cardio training.

“Movement creates breath and breath creates movement”
 
  • Stress relief

  • Let’s be clear: the type of yoga we teach is a physical form, namely VINYASA. All postures are connected in a flow. Whether you practice active or passive yoga, through the connection with your breathing and your focus, your work, household chores and tasks disappear into the background for a bit. 
     
    1. Focus

    A key take-away you can get/find in yoga. The power to want something is more important than the physical possibilities. Such focus and self-confidence are not easy to find within yourself and in daily life, but yoga puts that door ajar for you. 
     
    1. Flexibility

    Intensive sports are a great idea, but a general daily dose of exercise even more so. The flexibility of the joints, the length of muscles, the mobility of the body: these are all key factors for a healthy mind and body. Yoga is the ideal sport for anyone who wants to exercise and boost their flexibility. 
     
    1. Muscle strengthening

    Pushing yourself from one pose into another strengthens your muscles!… It is a misconception that yoga is only calm and relaxing. The atmosphere may be calm (the music, the lights in the room) but don't worry, you're guaranteed to huff and puff on your mat. 

    Conclusion? 

    The main conclusion is: try it. you can read books and immerse yourself in the theoretical side of yoga, but ultimately you should really try it. Once you have rolled open your mat, only then can you understand the yoga craze. Or rather, why the craze is not a craze, but has become a craze because it feels so good. 

    Who doesn't want to move for an hour and still go home feeling recharged?
