More often that not when you ask people what they know about yoga, this is all you here. One giant misconception is that yoga is more a very relaxed form of meditation than an actual work out. You do more than just sit there with your legs crossed and eyes closed focusing on inner peace.
Have you been wondering what all they hype is about? Here are our top 5 Reasons as to why YOU need to join our Power Flow Vinyasa Yoga classes at Revitalize Wellness Center!
1) Better Sleep:
Practising yoga helps you release pent up energy that could prevent you from falling asleep, and sleeping soundly once you do get to sleep. Yoga helps relax your nervous system and racing mind, which is the part of your body responsible for restful sleep or a night of tossing and turning.
2) Better Sex
By performing even the most basic of yoga poses, you’ll be helping to build your body into a super sexy machine. Your improved flexibility will not only help you get into more positions than you could before, but you’ll be able to hold them for longer periods of time without getting tired. All yoga positions are inextricably linked to the sexual act, so you can literally choose any sequence and you’ll be improving yourself greatly.

3) Lower Blood Pressure
This gives your heart a good work out and will improve your cardiovascular function over time. The key is sticking with it long enough to get these benefits. It’s the calming nature of yoga that provides this benefit, so focus on feeling good, and only push yourself far enough for continual growth, and not the point of frustration.
4) Faster Metabolism
Are you trying to lose weight? Yoga increases your lean muscle, and makes you more flexible. This alone is enough to get your metabolism going, but it also gives you more energy, making you more likely to be active through the day. An improved metabolism means you’ll be burning calories even while you’re sitting on the sofa or sleeping in your bed.
5) Less Stress and Anxiety
Stress has been labelled as the silent killer but yoga can help you kick big-time stress as well as that under the radar stress that can be just as problematic. By setting time aside each day to perform yoga you’ll notice that you are taking away time that you may have spent worrying, fretting, stressing out, or even having an anxiety attack; and now have time to quiet the mind, and it also gives your body an outlet to release energy blocks that may have you stressing out even more.
