3. Three Things Yoga Can Do for You.
1. Strengthens your muscles and bones.
Some don't know, but after age 30, we start to loose muscle mass, which can lead to reduced mobility. Acording to some specialists, practicing yoga can lead to stronger muscles. When we do push-ups, planks, and arms and quad shaking, we know we are building strength. A study published in Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation had around 200 women practice 12 yoga poses including Vrikasana (Tree Pose) and Virabhadrasana II (Warrior II) for 12 minutes a day over the course of two years and found that yoga could increase bone density over time.
2. Improves posture.
Posture is one major benefit of yoga in a world where most of us bend over a desk all day. Maintaining good posture can help reduce neck pain, increase energy levels, and improve digestion some research has shown—and yoga can help you straighten out your spine. Postures such as Downward Facing Dog, Dolphin, Wheel, and Forearm Stand will strengthen muscles in the neck and shoulders and elongate the spine.
3. Helps to reduce chronic pain.
An estimated 50 million people suffer from chronic pain, the CDC says, yoga has been found to provide relief in many ways. Yoga improve flexibility, range of motion, and it also reduces inflammation, which may contribute to pain. A published review in Pain Research and Management found that a wide range of yoga poses reduces chronic back pain. This was also the same if practiced for a short amount of time. Other studies in Medicine showed that yoga might reduce neck pain and improve pain-related to disabilities.
3. Is Yoga for everyone?
Yoga is for absolutely everybody, and its not all headstands and odd possess. It is accessible to all body type and helps your body gain strength and maintain bodily function, such as lifting your arms and bending your legs.
Some Professionals recommend beginners start with Flow yoga. This builds your strength and allows you to learn the poses. For intermediate or advanced people, "Hot yoga", or Power yoga can help build strength and flexibility while burning calories.
