Are you into Yoga? I sure am! But I haven't always been..
I started my yoga journey when we lived in Asia. Before that I had thought many times of starting yoga but I didn't have a good opportunity. So there I was living in Malaysia with so many experienced yoga practitioners and I thought this is the right time. This is it. I signed for a Hatha Yoga class. As it turned out, this was love at first sight. At the end of the lesson I couldn't quite believe how relaxed and at peace I felt. So I continued to practise yoga at least once a week. After we moved back to Finland, I continued practising yoga. This was right after I found out about Yogaia, online classes. I have used this website ever since. Nowadays I try to do yoga at least once a week from Yogaia and in the weekend mornings I do my own version of yoga.
Here are benefits I have gained from practising Yoga:
- It makes me more relaxed. After I have done yoga all the tension is gone from my body.
- When I am really stressed out, yoga helps me to calm down and it reduces muscle stiffness which I have a lot.
- It targets all muscle groups so it is an excellent form of exercise.Whole body workout 👍💪
- It highlights the focus on your inner self and breathing. This in itself will force you to listen to your body and will ultimately relax you.
- You can focus on yourself and not on competing or comparing your performance to the other ones. This is especially important for people who are doers in life.
- It is good for people of all ages and fitness levels. So no matter your current shape, you can start practicing it.
- It is low impact so it won't put any impact on your joints. This is important if you have issues in your joints.
- You can do it everywhere and it is low cost. There are many free yoga programs on Youtube.
Lots of love,
