A little more about yoga & its benefits in general…
Yoga is not only for everyone, but it is for anyone that is concerned about their overall well being, it is not only about a healthy body, but mental & spiritual health as well.
Robert Holly, Ph.D., a senior lecturer in the Department of Exercise Biology at U.C. Davis, says that muscles respond to stretching by becoming larger & capable of extracting & using more oxygen more quickly. In other words, side benefits of flexibility include increased muscle strength & endurance. Yoga poses help increase lung capacity by improving the flexibility of the rib area, shoulders & back allowing the lungs to expand more fully. Standing poses, balancing poses & inversions build quite a bit of strength because they require sustained isometric contractions of many large & small muscles. Spending one hour in a yoga class can burn anywhere from 200 to 500 calories, depending on intensity. Yoga has proven to reduce stress, anxiety & fatigue as well. A strong, flexible body can also prevent injuries in sports, fitness & other physical activities whether at home with your children, playing like children in your free time or in the workplace. Finally, yoga tunes you into your body & helps you to better coordinate your actions. (Information gathered from various articles at www.yogajournal.com)
