6 classes to celebrate World Yoga Day

6 classes to celebrate World Yoga Day

World Yoga Day is upon is. If you haven’t explored yoga before the time is now. With so many different types of movement, you can find a class that suits your mood, your schedule, or your workout preference.

Why does this ancient ritual make us feel so good?

  1. In research studies yoga has comparable positive effects as medical treatment and group therapy in relieving feelings of anxiety, stress and depression.
  2. Yoga focusing on stretching and the breath especially in the evenings stimulates a high HRV (heart rate variability). The higher the HRV, the more likely we are able to shift from being stressed to a state of relaxation. Long term we become better equipped to cope with the pressures of daily life.
  3. Yoga is an incredibly safe practice, where your teacher will take you bit-by-bit through the motions.
  4. Miraculously reduces our blood glucose and risk of diabetes.
  5. A great means to increase tone and strength whilst reducing back pain.
  6. Proven to better the depth and quality of sleep.
