5 Benefits of Starting Yoga

Stretching

After a week spent sitting at a desk, literally my favourite thing is being able to properly stretch muscles and limbs while focusing on alignment. I feel my joints working for the first time in a week and my muscles get that really pleasant ache when you’ve worked them. It would be worth it just for the warm-up’s and cool down’s.

Physical activity

The type of yoga I do is far gentler than my gym sessions. But, as mentioned, you ache – you’re working your body in a softer way than pounding out 5k on the treadmill, challenging the muscles to loosen and stretch rather than making your heart race. It’s not about speed or strength, it’s about checking in with how you are feeling that day and how far you want to push yourself each week.

Pushing yourself

I am not flexible. My balance isn’t great. I have limited core strength (I’m working on it, people!). But by adding to the routine each week, I can see if yes, I do want to drop my hand low

  1. I so need to start yoga! I’m so out of shape – and I, too, sit at a desk all week! So, I’m definitely trying to get this up and going. It’s hard with my two little guys running around, plus work, plus dinner, plus the other million things I have on my plate. I just need to MAKE TIME! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
