While balancing school, work, and everyday life it’s not always easy to mustard up the energy for the gym, but yoga has quickly become a popular way to help stay in shape, ease muscle pain, and improve flexibility – a perfect late New Years resolution.
Registered Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor at Yoga Centre London, Susan Brimner says the benefits extend far beyond the physical aspects.
“Yoga really improves mental acuity,” Brimner says, “It will help you through the aging process better, and truly connects your body, spirit and mind.”
Even a twenty minute solo practice at the end of a long day of work can have endless benefits to helping you refresh and compile your thoughts.
“Iyengar yoga is our favourite here at Yoga Centre London. It involves a lot of inversions and a lot of back bends. It is said that it can stave off Alzheimer’s, depression and any other disorders of the mind.”
Studies also show that yoga can even help prevent some forms of cancer.
Many young people are joining the wave through community events or local yoga class sessions, making it more popular than ever before.
