Yoga for Anti Aging

What Is Yoga?

According to the American Yoga Association, yoga unites physical activity, meditation, and controlled breathing. The word “yoga” comes from an ancient phrase meaning “to join,” which refers to the mind and body coming together.

We recommend practicing yoga on a bi weekly basis.

The type of yoga practiced most often in the United States is Hatha yoga, which emphasizes particular poses while paying careful attention to breathing techniques.

Yoga creates beautifying and anti aging benefits by:

•Relieving stress
•Relaxing and strengthening muscles
•Enhancing mood
•Lowering blood pressure

Yoga teaches us to view the body as our most important asset, one that should be treated with the utmost care and respect. The following are just a few of the possible ways that yoga may improve your overall beauty and health:

  1. Stress and anxiety. Yoga relieved stress in a high percentage of participants in a study of more than 100 Australians with mild to moderate levels of stress, participants engaged in either weekly relaxation or Hatha yoga sessions for 10 weeks.   Stress and anxiety are key contributors to premature aging and aging related disease development.
  2. Enhancement of musculature to realign your bone structure and posture for a more youthful body.
  3. Better sleep
  4. Less pain from tightness after weight bearing exercise

 

If you have any underlying health problems, discuss the possible risks of yoga with your doctor beforehand. Also, make sure you know the demands a particular class will place on your body before you enroll. If you do take a class, inform your yoga instructor of any health concerns that may affect your ability to perform certain poses.
