If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air to add to a tired workout routine, yoga may be the answer. This ancient practice is extremely popular here in the West because it works the whole body and mind. With regular practice, yoga brings a sense of wellness and improved mood that no other workout can accomplish.
People of all fitness levels can participate in yoga and enjoy its benefits. Even the elderly or those with physical limitations can find a gentler yoga practice that works for them. If you’re interested in getting started, a beginning Hatha yoga class will teach you the basic postures, breathing, and improve flexibility. As your body strengthens and concentration improves, you are ready to move on to the next level or try another type of yoga altogether.
At Wantagh yoga, several yoga classes are available and instructors are passionate about teaching their students the joys of practicing yoga. Many find that yoga fits wonderfully into their fitness routine or can even be practiced on its own. For others it becomes a sort of obsession that turns into a lifelong practice. Either way, yoga provides strength and flexibility to your entire body, inside and out. You learn to connect the mind and body as well through increasing awareness of your breath and movements. And unlike other fitness routines, yoga can be adjusted to suit the changing conditions of your body and overall health. So anyone can continue to practice through sickness, aging, and other life changes.
