"I'm not flexible enough for yoga", something often said but exactly the reason you should do yoga...
10 Very Good Reasons to do Yoga:
Yoga is an excellent way to increase your flexibility. In yoga muscle tissue is lengthened whilst joints are stabilised which leads to great muscular integrity and strength.
Yoga incorporates static and dynamic upper and lower body movements. Many yoga poses also build core strength.
3. Body Awareness
Not so much in a spiritual sense, but more in a sense that you know where your limbs are in space. Yoga promotes better coordination and quality of movement.
4. Ease of Movement
At the foundation of yoga is the breath, by learning to better control the breath we can learn to move more easily and freely. Once we learn to move well on the mat we start to move more easily off of the mat.
5. Recovery from Training
Yoga after an intense training session will aid in reducing muscle soreness and discomfort. Sore and painful muscles restrict mobility, yoga will help get you back to training sooner.
6. Injury Prevention
Increased mobility, strength and body awareness can prevent injury. Keeping muscles and joints supple is a way to safeguard against injury, and assist in recovering from injury.
Yoga makes one of the best travel buddies. All you need is some basic poses and a yoga mat and you can yoga everywhere.
8. More Zen
Lets face it, in this modern day we can all use a little help with relaxation, calm and focus.
9. Break the Stereotype
We think this is reason enough to give yoga a go. For far too long yoga has been seen as a women's only zone. Strong and flexible bodies and calmed minds are for everyone.
