Getting the blood pumping, coupled with the massaging effect of surrounding muscles speeds up a sluggish digestion. Certain twisting poses are also great for helping your liver and kidneys flush out toxins, aiding digestion.
Throughout a yoga class, joints are moved through their full range of motion, which encourages mobility and eases pressure. The gentle stretching releases muscle and joint tension, whilst increasing flexibility. It's a great workout choice for those with lower back pain or stiff joints.
Improved blood circulation, easing of the muscles and focusing the mind on breathing all combine to soothe the nervous system. A great way to reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue.
Regular stretching of the spine and controlled movements will help you to stand correctly, taking pressure off the neck and back. Plus, great posture will make you look taller and slimmer!
Low impact exercises are great for those rehabilitating muscle imbalances or injuries. The slow movements prevent the body from moving too quickly, whilst allowing all core muscles to be worked.
