September is National Yoga Month

Make this the month to Learn Yoga.

Have you thought about trying yoga lately? It’s a fun alternative to high-impact exercise and offers just as many health benefits, such as:
• Decreased stress
• Improved hand-eye coordination
• Enhanced concentration
• Pain management
• Better sleep
• Improved flexibility
• Lower blood pressure
• Strengthened bones and joints
• Weight loss

Yoga realigns and rebalances your body on a regular basis. When your body is finely tuned, your chances for injuries and illnesses decrease. The practice of yoga involves performing a variety of poses, called asanas, along with breathing exercises or meditation to cleanse and detoxify your body. These actions increase blood circulation.

Regular practice of stretches, twists, bends and inversions – the basic movements of yoga poses – also restore strength and stamina to the body.

Are you out of shape or new to yoga? Don’t let that stop you. Many of the poses involved in yoga can be altered for beginners.Start out slowly and you will likely be surprised at how far you can come in just a few weeks.

If you are trying to lose weight, add yoga with aerobic exercise and weight training. Along with a diet filled with whole grains, protein, fruits and vegetables. You should be able to see (and feel) the difference in about a month.

Yoga can be practiced by anyone, at any fitness level, at any age, pretty much anywhere.

I love doing yoga. I started many years ago because I hated the whole icky sweat thing w/aerobics. Sometimes I sweat in yoga too, but somehow I don't mind that - can't figure it out! Now my big thing is doing it daily - I don't - and I should!
