Okay, so you’ve heard all about it, you’re friends are doing it, you’ve told yourself you’ve been meaning to do it, and here you are! Showing up to a Yoga class for the first time can be nerve-racking- so congrats on getting this far.
There is a reason everyone who does Yoga talks about it all the time, how it changed their life, how you should come to a class with them. Can you guess the reason?
Yoga is an effective way to exercise the body and calm the mind. We don't often realize the importance of a Yoga practice to support our quality of life until we begin to practice. Here are some of the ways Yoga increases quality of life:
How many times have you driven from one place to another and, upon arrival, have no idea how you got there? How many times have you had trouble falling/staying asleep? How many days have you suffered with low back pain, neck and shoulder tension, digestive issues, and inability to focus?
The truth is Yoga can be the all-natural solution to all of these problems. The poses, breathing exercises, and meditation techniques found in Yoga are unlike any other form of exercise. They target all aspects of being human and make it a better experience- even an experience worth celebrating! Don’t believe me? Come to a class and see for yourself. It may very well be the best decision you’ve ever made.
