Yoga is very beneficial for so many aspects to your body’s overall health! We heard CMO talk about it in great detail in a past post I LOVE YOGA AND YOU SHOULD TOO. Yoga helps us to become better at our sport (CrossFit perhaps:-), to become more engaged in our mind and soul, and to help the effects of everyday life (i.e sitting in chairs, typing all day, slouching etc…) not be detrimental to your overall wellness!
Yoga is so important to so many other aspects of your life as well. Below are three more effective ways that yoga will help boost your life that you may have not thought about.
Any yoga lover remembers her first class—shaky legs, awkward attempts at poses, nervous glances around to see if anyone else is struggling, too. But, like most exercises and sports, you have to practice yoga to excel at it. And as you master movements that once seemed difficult—even impossible—you build confidence. It can teach you that “obstacles are opportunities,”
Funny how that is similar to CrossFit?
Yoga Teaches Self-Discipline
Excelling at yoga requires a physical and mental commitment to get on your mat regularly. The philosophy of yoga mindfulness behind each physical poses encourages you to improve your skills gradually through daily work. You don’t burn yourself out by working 24/7 or competing with others; instead, you focus on yourself and make conscious and responsible choices.
Sounds like a great compliment to CrossFit?
Yoga Reduces Stress
Yoga techniques and poses have a positive impact on the nervous system. Meditation, steady breathing, and restful poses such as Shavasana (“corpse pose”), which often end yoga classes, help slow the heart and relax the muscles. When the nervous system slows down, you have the benefit to feel calmer and more emotionally stable.
At least you don't have any stress in your life, right?
