Health Benefits of Yoga

Get Moving! Stand Still! Now Balance! Oh No, Don’t Forget to Breathe…

Laurel Attanasio | YogaI LOVE Yoga because you get to do all of the above and so much more! Getting moving = getting healthy, but if we forget to slow down we can quickly move in an unhealthy direction. Yoga balances movement and stillness providing a great calorie burn while calming the mind and the body. So, the more yoga you do, the more you look good and feel good!!!

Despite its most recent popularity, yoga has been around for thousands of years and has been used to cure illnesses and reduce ailments way before the invention of P90X. A well-rounded yoga workout blends together poses that energize, detoxify and calm the body and mind. Most yoga sessions will include seated poses, forward folds, inversions, standing poses, twisted poses while maintaining an emphasis on the breath and alignment.

Here are some of my favorite reasons to do yoga!!
