At the end of a busy and stressful workday, sometimes my back gets tight and mentally I’m exhausted. That is the perfect opportunity to do yoga! Why? Well if you are a beginner, yoga can be a great aid for relaxation and it’s a good place to start. Because as you begin to practice breathing techniques, stretches, and poses. The calming of your nerves are sure to follow! It can feel a little uncomfortable at first, but if you stick with it at least a minimum of 30 minutes; the effects on your mind and body will surely be noticeable.
When I started yoga back in 2009, the main positive change I noticed was the calming effect on my mind. It felt clearer and refreshed. Also yoga relaxed my entire body, as well as sleep quality improvements; especially if done in the evening. Plus, my digestive system functioned better from doing twist poses. Unfortunately, I didn’t and still haven’t seen much toning from doing this kind of yoga, because I don’t do it everyday. So I incorporate other workouts to achieve my fitness goals.
Overall, I strongly recommend doing yoga to anyone that has never tried it before, because it’s different and it never hurts to try new things!
