1. It’s a great workout
Many people who have never done yoga before have the perception that it is “easy” or that you “just lay there.” This my friends, is not true at all. During one yoga practice, it is possible to exercise every muscle group.
2. You don’t have to have any experience to try it
Never tried yoga in your life? No problem. There is a huge variety of classes from beginner to advanced so there is always a place for you. Plus, every class offers modifications for the more challenging poses.
3. It’s relaxing
It can be really hard to let your thoughts go and be present in the current moment. Yoga allows you to let go of your worries and responsibilities for an hour and focus on your practice. Being able to escape for a short time leaves you feeling refreshed and more motivated.
4. There is always more to practice
Anyone who has been practicing for any amount of time will never tell you that they have perfected it. There are always different things to try and ways you can push yourself so you will never get bored of yoga.
Becoming more flexible has a ton of benefits for your body, especially if you are an athlete or someone who does other types of exercise often. Things like running and weightlifting can make our muscles very tense and without stretching, this tension can cause pain.
