Everywhere we look it seems that people are hopping on the yoga bandwagon. From hot yoga to vinyasa yoga, the trend does not seem to be dying out anytime soon. However, this is great news! Yoga is a fantastic exercise to add into your weekly workout regime. Yoga has been known forever as an exercise of strength and strong focus, making it the perfect workout to do for your mind and your body. The benefits of even adding it once a week into your workout routine has proven to be valuable for all. Benefits aside yoga comes in all forms making it a workout anyone can enjoy. Whether you are looking for a more breathing focused yoga class or a more strength focused class, you are bound to find what you are looking for, especially if you have a Tampa, Florida Youfit membership. Here at Youfit we offer a variety of yoga classes for you to try out. This way you can test the waters before adding it into your weekly routine; although, we already know you are going to love it.
What are the Advantages to Yoga?
With yoga becoming so popular you may be asking yourself what the hype is all about and whether the benefits are really that great. Well, there is no doubt that the benefits are unbelievable. But to really understand the excitement you are going to have to try out a class for yourself. In the meantime, here are 3 advantages to yoga.
- Increased Strength
We often see people comment on how much yoga has improved their strength. This usually comes as a surprise to many, but at Youfit we knew that this was just a hidden gem waiting to be found. For all our people who want to see some increase in strength and muscle tone but do not want to life weights, this is your solution. Yoga has the power to sculpt you without you ever having to step foot into the weight room. This is because when you do yoga your body is essentially the weight. Every time you hold a pose in the yoga studio you are squeezing throughout your body in an effort to not fall out of the pose. This takes some serious muscle power to do and guarantees you wake up feeling the burn the next day.
- Increased Flexibility
This advantage from yoga never comes as a surprise to anyone; however, there are still tons of people out there who do not believe increasing flexibility is important. Becoming more flexible can actually work in your favor in the gym. From allowing you to go deeper into strength workouts to lengthening out your muscles, it’s safe to say we all can benefit a lot from flexibility. This benefit can also help you prevent injuries due to your body becoming more limber.
- Decreases Feelings of Stress
If you aren’t interested in yoga for the physical benefits than at least consider jumping on the bandwagon for the mental benefits. We all get stressed out from time to time, it’s a natural part of living life. While stress may not always get to you, it’s nice to be able to escape it when it does creep up. By picking up yoga as a part of your weekly routine you will notice how much better as a whole you feel from week to week. Your yoga class will become that time in your week that’s fully about you. This can be that one hour where you can recharge your batteries. We all need some alone time where we can escape reality for a little bit, and what better place to get your you time than at a yoga class.
Whatever your reason for taking part in yoga, you are bound to gain something from it. And if you have never done yoga before but have been following along and think yoga may be something you want to try, then you may want to give us a call to book your yoga class. Not a Youfit member?
