Yoga For Everyone
It's never too early OR late to start practicing yoga.
Yoga For Women - Yoga can assist in weight loss as well as toning the body, building muscle and
increasing your overall level of general fitness. Yoga can also be practiced during and
after pregnancy. Certain yoga postures can help strengthen the back. Other postures will help to reduce stress
and anxiety. Breathing exercises are always useful in preparing for the birth. Yoga postures
can also help with menstruation and menopausal problems. Always consult a
doctor and qualified yoga practitioner before undertaking any yoga practice.
Yoga For Men - men are often reluctant to start practicing yoga, but when
they realise the huge benefits that regular practice can bring, they soon incorporate
yoga into their daily or weekly exercise routines. Yoga can help men increase their
muscle power, stamina and flexibility. There is no dispute that yoga can help
men physically but it can also be extremely beneficial as a stress reducer. A combination
of deep stretching, meditation and breathing techniques will aid relaxation, reduce stress
and calm the mind.
Yoga For Seniors - the great thing about yoga is that you don't need any special
equipment, clothing or footwear. Yoga can also be practiced at any time of the day.
If you have never practiced yoga before, then taking things slowly is advisable. Always
seek guidance from your health practitioner and local yoga teacher. There are also many good videos and dvds
on the market with the aim of catering for the older generation. Regular gentle yoga practice will
help to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and contribute to better circulation.
Yoga will also promote improved memory and attention span.
Yoga For Children - Children's yoga can be great fun as well as being extremely
beneficial to a child's health and well-being. Stretching will help children
become more flexible as well as strengthening their arms and legs. Yoga will also
improve a child's breathing and circulation. Regular yoga practice for children will make
them calmer, more relaxed and much happier.
This is just a quick guide to the general benefits that Yoga can bring to people
of all sexes and ages. As you progress with your practice you will also begin to learn
that yoga can also promote healing of the mind and body. Yoga is often used as a complementary
therapy alongside orthodox medicine in the treatment of many common ailments.
