Achieving your fitness goals may not always be easy, especially if you set high expectations for yourself. Whether you want to add muscle mass, lose weight, increase flexibility, or improve strength, it may be daunting to find the right program and follow it consistently.
Fortunately, Yoga helps you achieve all these goals and overall well-being, fitness, and health.
The Most Intensive Workout
Most workout routines use only a specific set of muscles but Yoga makes you exercise all your muscles, giving you a full-body workout. You train your arms, legs and core at the same time. This is extremely beneficial whether you want to improve muscle tone or build a stronger body and saves you time as well.
Improve Mental Strength
To hold Yoga poses for the required time, you need to concentrate. When you learn to push your body out of the comfort zone, you not only improve physical endurance but also mental strength. This mental toughness can further help you improve your Yoga practice.
You may not have ‘flexibility’ as one of the fitness goals on your list, but it is one thing that can help –
- improve your range of motion
- make movements efficient, correct and easy
- make your muscles to work harder]
- get faster results in improving fitness
- give you an edge in a competitive sport
