The low impact nature of a yoga class makes it a great full body workout for all fitness abilities.

Many of our older gym members enjoy a yoga class, thanks to the low intensity and ease on the joints.

Yoga is great for newbies, pregnant women, weight loss warriors or runners ready to limber up. There's something for everyone to get out of yoga - find out yours. 


Can Yoga Build Muscle?

Absolutely! You don't need to lift weights to build muscle and add definition, there any many ways to achieve your goals. Several of the yoga poses you'll practice at Village Gym Leeds are designed to break down muscle fibers by creating tension.

As your body repairs the muscles, more muscle mass is created, leading to a more toned, tighter physique, so roll out that yoga mat and get started. 

Can Yoga Help With Weight Loss?

If weight loss is your goal, our Basingstoke yoga classes will get your heart pumping and those calories burning. Choose a faster paced class such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga. The more lean muscle you build through attending yoga classes, the better your body will blast calories.

By opting for a yoga class with plenty of movement and one that makes you sweat, you'll power up your weight loss efforts, without feeling too exhausted afterwards! 

1. Speed Up Circulation

Studies show that regular yoga can help to regulate blood pressure. So if your circulation is a little sluggish, our expert Leeds yoga instructors will guide you through particular poses to help get your heart pumping and your blood flowing!

2. Great for the gut

Getting the blood pumping, coupled with the massaging effect of surrounding muscles speeds up slow digestion. Certain twisting and stretching poses are also great for helping your liver and kidneys to flush out toxins, for a healthier gut all round.

3. Get set to flex

Throughout our Leeds yoga class, you'll work on moving your joints through their full range of motion, improving your body's mobility and easing pressure. The gentle stretching releases muscle and joint tension, whilst increasing flexibility. So it's a great workout for those with lower back pain or stiff joints.

4. Calm Those Nerves

Feeling a little stressed? The improved blood circulation, easing of the muscles and focus on breathing all combine to help soothe the nervous system. So our Leeds yoga class is a great way to reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue.

5. Perfect That Posture

Regular stretching of the spine and controlled core movements will help you to stand correctly, taking pressure off the neck and back. Plus, great posture will make you look taller and slimmer!

Our Leeds yoga class will certainly give you a good spine stretching and help you to walk taller. 

6. Aid Injury

In recovery?

Low impact exercise is great for anyone recovering from muscle imbalances or injuries.  The slow movements in our Basingstoke yoga class will prevent the body from moving too quickly, whilst allowing all core muscles to be worked. 

7. Improve Balance

If your balance could be better, our Leeds yoga classes will help to create a sense of stability! Yoga will help you to work on your physical co-ordination, improving your balance and core strength.

This is one of the reasons our older members enjoy yoga, as it has been shown to help reduce the risk of falls in older adults. 

8. Better Breathing

All that breathing control will help to increase lung capacity and improve air circulation. You may find that after a few of our Leeds yoga classes, you'll start to sleep much better too!

Correct breathing technique has been shown to help you nod off much quicker and get a much better quality of shut eye.
