Can Yoga Help With Weight Loss?

If weight loss is your goal, choose a yoga class that will get your heart pumping, such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga.

A yoga class with plenty of movement involved and that makes you sweat is best for helping you to lose weight. 

 

Can Yoga Build Muscle?

Yep. Despite what you may hear, you don't need to be heaving weights to build muscle and tone the body. Several of the yoga poses you'll get to grips with at Village Gym Eastleigh are designed to break down muscle fibers by creating tension.

As your body repairs these muscles, more muscle mass is created, leading to better tone and definition.

Can Yoga Improve Posture?

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!

What About Injury?

Low impact exercises are great for those rehabilitating muscle imbalances or injuries.  The slow movements in your Eastleigh Yoga class will prevent the body from moving too quickly, whilst allowing all core muscles to be worked. 

Can Yoga Reduce Stress?

Yoga has long been known to be a great reliever of stress and uses a combination of exercise, controlled breathing and meditation to help relax the body and mind. Establishing a consistent yoga routine is the best way to experience the difference yoga can make.

What Is Mindful Breathing?

Mindful breathing is a very basic yet powerful mindfulness meditation practice, often used in yoga classes. The idea is simply to focus your attention on your breathing and its natural rhythm and flow, considering the way it feels on each inhale and exhale.

Can Yoga Help You Sleep?

Practicing yoga regularly could help you to manage symptoms of insomnia and help you get that all important beauty sleep. After one of our evening yoga classes near Southampton, you're more likely be able to fall asleep quicker, sleep for longer, and go back to sleep after waking up in the night night.

What Should I Wear?

Yoga is all about fluid movements, so you'll want to wear something that allows you to move, stretch and contort your body into numerous positions!

Go for tight fitting clothes made from stretchy and breathable fabric. On the feet, wear socks with small grips which will allow you to smoothly glide, without falling or opt for bare feet.
