Ever wondered why yoga works for so many people? Yoga acts on three different levels.
It’s simply this – after a busy, sometimes stressful, week it’s hard to still your mind and stop replaying things over and over again. In a 60 minute class you’ll get loads of space to completely unwind. You won’t have chance to think about work, your shopping list, what to make for tea, you will just be able to lose yourself in the music and in the here and now.
Your body will thank you for your investment in posture and alignment. After a day hunched over a keyboard, stuck in one place or rushing about, you will have chance to unwind and relax your shoulders and neck. Your spine will decompress itself and you will create much needed space between your joints, warming and mobilising that golden synovial fluid that protects your joints.
You’ll sleep better and wake up feeling much more refreshed and ready for the new day. Better sleep allows your body time to produce those hormones that regulate hunger (leptin). Your blood pressure will typically lower, allowing the oxygen and nutrients to circulate round your body and work their magic.
Your mood will lift, and you will feel more relaxed and positive. You’ll leave the studio feeling a calmness, happiness and sense of achievement that will support you through the rest of your day.
